A podcast covering everything that's great about food without all the fuss. Each episode we pick a food, in alphabetical order, and give it the love it deserves.
Brought to you by the team behind the award-winning online travel show Attaché, Mastication Nation is the food podcast for those of you who don't mind getting a little messy when you eat.
EP028 - Z is for "We Made it!"
We finally got there, once round the horn! It only took us a few years but we got there in the end. In this episode we look back on what we enjoyed over the summer, our favourite cookbooks, the "fake" food revolution, and more.
EP027 - Y is for YYZ! (Or...Surrender pronto or we'll level Toronto!)
The "lost episode" episode. We re-recorded our Toronto episode because the city needs an episode to itself. One of the most diverse cities on earth, Toronto's food scene is unbelievable.
Episode X - The Lost Episode
Alex and GREG...yes, Greg, graciously filling in for Will, talk about the best and worst foods they've discovered during their filming of 40 episodes of Attaché.
EP026 - W is for WHISK(E)Y! (Or...Does whiskey count as beer?)
We barely scratch the surface of this complex and fascinating subject but thanks to special guest Chris Ratcliffe (and Will's educated enthusiasm)we unlock a few of its secrets. Like why *is* it spelled differently in different regions? How do you pick a whiskey you'll enjoy? Why is Japanese whisky running out?
EP025 - V is for VINEGAR! (Or...remind me to get my my brain flushed out with vinegar.)
Vinegar. On the face of it, not the most appetising of subjects but there's a lot to love about this ancient potion. So many uses, so many varietals...but is Will wrong to not like malt vinegar? Alex thinks so but do you? Listen in for that and much more.
EP024 - U is for UMAMI! (Or...Don't scoop me gelato unless it's got umami.)
Umami. The "latest" taste to be discovered and codified but one that we just couldn't live without. Weaponised as a way to beat poor nutrition, instead it was vilified in the West. A lively and sometimes controversial debate in this episode - join in!

Great food Pod
I love this pod, i came in at episode L and have worked my way back to A.
It is really cool to hear how Will and Alex see there food and how some things differ around the world and how things really don't. They have a great rapport, almost as if they were brothers (haha). They also know there food and Will's background research is fantastic.
Final the thing i really love is the fact that it feels like they are really interacting with the audiance by taking note of what people are say to them on twitter and online.
All in all one of the best podcast about.
