And on this week’s show!

Do you dislike cooking? What if a few simple tips, tricks, utensil hacks or simple mindset shifts could make your experience in the kitchen altogether more enjoyable and cost you less time and money in the process of getting food on the table? Today’s show will help as I have this uplifting conversation with Alice Zaslavsky about the power of the salad spinner (I’m not joking – listen and believe!) and so much more. If we can help just one person out there go ‘yay, what to cook tonight, I’ll have a rummage’ then it’s job done. Her new book “The Joy of Cooking” is an indispensable kitchen tool and we dive into a few highlights from it throughout the show. In the space of a decade, Alice Zaslavsky has gone from high-school Humanities and English teacher to one of the country’s most authoritative and exciting media stars and taste-makers, with an internationally award-winning and bestselling cookbook “In Praise of Veg”.
