Weekly dose of Gastro Geekness

This show has pockets of real culinary wisdom mixed with knowledgeable nonsense. Food focussed but happy to tangent into any subject - and I mean any! Some great guests with real industry stories and always a funny story to share. Highly recommended.

Papalula ,

Season to taste.

If you like Harold McGee, Modernist Cuisine, Chefsteps and similar then this is the show for you. Dave Arnold is a crazy MoFo but a very knowledgeable and passionate one and there’s lots of nerdy cooking goodness going on here.

The_Dr00 ,

Painful

It’s a great subject and somehow the host is able to get some amazing guests, but it’s the host himself that ruins it. He’s deeply insecure and abrasive, desperate to show off his knowledge (which is considerable) to gain the approval of his more esteemed guests.

Get a decent host and you’ve got a show worth listening to, until then, this one is deleted with some haste.
