The Spinoff presents a monthly food podcast discussing everything we’ve been eating and drinking, hosted by Sophie Gilmour, and The Spinoff’s Alice Neville and Simon Day.

    Food podcast: In which we eat our feelings

    Food podcast: In which we eat our feelings

    Dietary Requirements is The Spinoff’s monthly podcast in which we eat, drink and talk about it too, with special thanks to Freedom Farms. This month, we're beaming in from our respective bubbles, joined by Al Keating of Coffee Supreme.


    Although we can't be together in person, the Dietary Requirements team was not about to let a little nationwide lockdown get in the way of bringing you another episode, especially at a time when eating and drinking is basically all that's getting some of us through.


    We're joined on our Zoom pod by Al Keating, CEO of Coffee Supreme, to discuss the crippling effects of the Covid-19 crisis on the industry and whether cafes will be able to come back from it, plus Alice's obsessive longing for a flat white. We discuss our lockdown cooking go-tos, ponder why the hell we're so hungry all the time, and think about all the fine establishments we're going to hit up when lockdown's over.
    Plus, Alice introduces a new family member, and Simon raps some Hairy Maclary (as you do).

    Food podcast: It's our ham-crazed, Negroni-fuelled Christmas special

    Food podcast: It's our ham-crazed, Negroni-fuelled Christmas special

    Dietary Requirements is The Spinoff’s monthly podcast in which we eat, drink and talk about it too, with special thanks to Freedom Farms. This month, we're joined by Hilary Pearson, general manager of Freedom Farms, for our Christmas episode.


    To listen, use the player below or download this episode (right click and save). Make sure to subscribe via iTunes, or via your favourite podcast client. And please share Dietary Requirements with your friends. Get in touch if you have any questions or requests: aliceneville@thespinoff.co.nz


    Our beloved cohost Sophie Gilmour is MIA this month, but she has a pretty good excuse – just a few days before we recorded, Sophie gave birth to little Odette, her first baby with husband David. Sending big aroha their way! Rest assured Odette will be joining us on the podcast in the not-too-distant future (and Soph will probably tag along too).


    Stepping capably into Sophie's shoes this episode is Hilary Pearson, general manager of Freedom Farms, which has sponsored this podcast and The Spinoff food section since inception some 18 months ago – if it wasn't for them, we wouldn't exist!


    Tis the season for ham and what Hilary doesn't know about that most festive of meats isn't worth knowing, so we interrogate her for tips, tricks and tales from Christmases past, and she talks us through these three out-of-the-ordinary glaze recipes. We also ponder pavlova – specifically why it's so bloody hard to nail it in a humid Auckland summer – and discuss some delicious alternatives.


    Speaking of ham, do you want to win one? We're giving away two Freedom Farms half champagne hams, each of which comfortably feeds 12 with Boxing Day leftovers to boot. Only catch is you have to pick it up in Auckland, either from Freedom Farms' office in Parnell, or The Spinoff HQ in Morningside. Email aliceneville@thespinoff.co.nz with ham giveaway in the subject line to enter.
    Meri Kirihimete, and see you next year!

    Feeding bellies not bins with Nick from Everybody Eats

    Feeding bellies not bins with Nick from Everybody Eats

    This month we’re joined by Nick Loosley of pay-as-you-feel dining concept Everybody Eats.
    A third of the food the world produces doesn’t end up in our stomachs. It’s a mind-boggling statistic, especially when you consider that at the same time, food poverty is a very real problem for many communities – including here in New Zealand.
    Nick Loosley has just opened the first permanent home for his pay-as-you-feel dining concept Everybody Eats, where food that would otherwise be wasted becomes a three-course meal prepared by chefs, served in a restaurant setting. Everyone is welcome, and you can pay as little or as much as you like. As well as tackling food waste and food poverty, it’s about social cohesion – encouraging people from all walks of life to come along, share a table and a yarn with someone with whom they might otherwise never cross paths.
    Nick joins us in the studio this month to talk about why he’s doing what he’s doing, and how he became a pro at feeding 300 people. Over leftovers from Everybody Eats’ new Onehunga restaurant and booze-free Lindauer, we share waste-reducing tips and agree best-before dates are b******t. Plus, we’re giving away a Freedom Farms Christmas ham!
