We started today's show trying to identify a mystery ingredient, that turned out to be fresh wasabi - yum! Why not try it as we did, grated into soy and served with raw tuna. Awesome.

From Japan to Japanese Hawaiian fusion, we spoke to Charlie Rothery from Windsor's Tokyo Tina about the fact that Poke fish is the new cool kid on the block. We sampled his tropical-style don dish featuring Poke, and spoke about the evolution of Japanese cuisine in different countries.

Next up we had a market report from John at the Vic Market.

We finished up with a food quiz, hurrah for all you listeners battling it out to win a book pack from Books for Cooks.

Dr Alecia Bellgrove from Deakin University has just returned from taking a group of her students to Japan – she talks about marine science in Japanese Universities, and some big changes on the horizon for marine research at Deakin University.
