It was a very sunny start to Community Cup Day, and the very sunny Philippa Sibley joined us in the studio. She's been busy: hanging out with the Wolf-Taskers at Lake House in Daylesford, writing a book, and also preparing to open a new place in Brunswick that will include (amongst other delights) a charcuterie island! We also spoke about chestnuts, and creating a Mont Blanc dessert. Go on, google it.

Last week we had the first half of an interview with John Reader, author of Propitious Esculent: The Potato In World History. We played the final half this week, including perhaps the most important period in the history of spuds, the Irish potato blight and subsequent famine.

Some pre-recorded interviews this week, starting with a market report from John at Tomato City.

A couple of years back we interviewed John Reader, the author of a book called Propitious Esculent: The Potato In World History. It's rather extraordinary to look at the influence our beloved potato has had on the history of the world, and we look at the various changes and outcomes that have occurred as humans learnt to grow and cook this strange new vegetable.
