    Thanks Anna! Foodtalk was a great series to work on, made much easier by having such passionate people to talk to. I had a fantastic time travelling around the country to talk to everyone and, of course, there was plenty of eating involved!

    Caroline: I have really been enjoying your blog, and it was great to listen to the podcasts- very well done. I live in Boston (USA) and think Ireland has some of the best food I have ever eaten. Your Foodtalk program was so authentic and it was as if was back there myself. Keep up the great work!

    Caroline: I just listened to the final foodtalk series this morning. It was great, but I kept thinking how it was the last one and I wish there were more. Any chance of other ones? Maybe you could interview different chefs or suppliers so that we can better understand the complete aspect of the foods we eat and the places we dine in? Just a thought!

    Given half a chance, Ellen, I’d love to do just that. The series was a pleasure to work on. I learned so much from the people that I spoke to and it definitely opened my eyes to the difficulties that many of our producers have. Maybe you should drop Newstalk a line and see if they’ll commission a new series!
