To finish a big year of food on Triple R we were joined in the studio by Joost Bakker. According to Joost, we should make 2015 the year of composting - in fact, over 100 restaurants in Melbourne are already sending their organic waste back to growers where it can make a positive difference rather than just ending up in landfill. And it's not just for restaurateurs; you can get a small version of the same compost systems they use from Closed Loop(and probably some other places too!)

Next up we had a final market report from John at the Queen Victoria Market.

And to round off the year, the redoubtable Sebastian Reaburn joined us to talk about that great party drink, punch. You don't need a punchbowl to make it (in fact, you can even use a washing machine, assuming you are slightly insane), and don't fret about whether your recipe is "wrong"... the great thing about punch is that there's no such thing! Does it taste good? Excellent! Punchtime!

News topics cover the amount of plastic in the oceans, new CSIRO RV Investigator ship and how dragonflies use the predictive flight method to hunt their prey.

We started today's show with a brief recap of last week's BBQ day experiment. Can you make your own sparkling wine at home with a Soda Stream? Well.. kinda... with the right wine it sort of works. With cask wine? Not so much!

Anyway onto more nobel pursuits, namely having a look back at the restaurant industry's 2014 with food writers Hilary McNevan and Michael Harden. We chatted about the lean profit margins experienced by most restaurateurs, how some of the trendy ingredients are becoming passe ("we've reached Peak Quinoa") and some of the best food experiences they've had this year.

To finish up wine guru Jane Faulkner joined us to talk about the increase in different grape varietals in the Australian wine industry, what's happening with wine prices in general, and some of the broader trends in the industry. Australian Gin? Tick. Tasmanian Whisky? Tick. Continuing rise of craft beer? BIG tick. Growing acceptance of Sake as a match for various cuisines? Tickerooney.
