Back to normal this week after Radiothon... well actually not 100% normal, as Cam was at the William Angliss Institute Open Day. William Angliss is Cam's alma mater, and we chatted via phone about the day's events and the changes evident since he studied there waaaaaaaay back in the 20th century.

Next up we had a long market report from John, as we slowly ease from Winter into Spring.

Lastly Cam ventured into the kitchen at Valentino Restaurant to speak to the chef and owner, Riccardo Momesso. We spoke about his approach to Calabrian food as an "Aussie Italian boy", his sourcing of ingredients from family and friends, and the seasonality of Calabrian cuisine.
