“Life’s all about being happy, isn’t it? Happiness is the most important thing.” Kevin Thornton, 2016 In 2008 I spent two days working in the kitchen of Kevin Thornton’s Michelin-starred restaurant on Dublin’s Stephen’s Green. No, not...
So, we didn’t win last night – but, as my producer said, that doesn’t mean that we aren’t great! An Australian show – The Main Ingredient: New Years Day which was presented by Kelli Brett and produced by ABC Radio – took the award for Best Food/Drink Radio Programme.
There was big excitement at the cottage when I learned that Spices, one of the Foodtalk documentaries that I presented for Newstalk, is a nominee for the 2010 Le Cordon Bleu World Food Media Awards! These awards celebrate the very best in international food publishing and broadcasting. With a total of 700 entries across 21 categories, now whittled down to 181 nominations, it is a true honour to make it this far. Spices is nominated in the best food/drink radio programme category alongside six other programmes from Australia and America.
If you’re interested in listening back to any of the Foodtalk shows that were broadcast on Newstalk over the last six weeks (no more sending text alerts online – my Sunday nights have suddenly gotten very quiet!), they’re now all available as podcasts from the Newstalk website. You can see them all here and full details of the interviewees are below.
Just discovered that Foodtalk: Spices is available to listen to as a podcast from the Newstalkpodcasts page – Foodtalk on Newstalk is at the top of the page so you can’t miss it! Check out Conor’s Bandon Blog for useful information on listening and subscribing online.
