Dirty Linen covers the issues the hospitality industry finds hard to share in public - it’s all up for grabs and everything is on the table.
Your host is food journalist Dani Valent. For 20 years, Dani has been writing about restaurants and the people who give them life. But she’s an outsider, a critic, a tourist, a fan. Despite hearing the stories and writing the tales, she’s never really understood what happens behind the scenes. Now it’s time to go deep.
Dirty Linen sticks to one topic for a week, and comprises numerous interviews coming at the weekly issue from different perspectives. We also invite those with compelling additions and views to put themselves forward for supplementary episodes. It’s a unique structure for a unique industry. Dirty Linen goes there, stays there and shakes it all about.

    Ben Slack (Chief Revenue Officer - Tennis Australia) - Is is still possible for the AO to be ace?

    The Australian Open is a key marker of the Melbourne summer but this year's tennis tournament has been upended by COVID. We chat to Tennis Australia's Chief Revenue Officer Ben Slack to find out how things are tracking. Players are getting mouthy about quarantine, crowd management is an enormous logistical and infrastructure challenge, and ticket sales are under pressure with travel nigh on impossible and Melbourne a little iffy about major events. Is is still possible for the AO to be ace?

    Sarah King (Designer - supercyclers) - sustainability, in front of us every day

    Everyone wants to live more sustainably but it can be hard to know where to start. Today's guest on Dirty Linen's Summer Series has some ideas. Designer Sarah King works across many different fields and for a diverse range of clients but she always starts with Client #1 - the Earth - in mind. We talk about Marine Debris Bakelite, the food-safe ocean plastic tableware that Sarah designed...and that Curtis Stone fell in love with. We talk about the Little Smart Black Dress that requires purchaser to enter a pact with manufacturer upon purchase. And we talk about starting where you are: sustainability isn't something over there, it's in front of each of us every day.

    Niki Russ Federman (Russ & Daughters, NYC) - Appetizing Since 1914.

    Today Dirty Linen's Summer Series heads back in time to New York, and an interview with Niki Russ Federman from Russ & Daughters. This iconic Lower East Side deli has been feeding New York since 1914. In what's been a devastating time for New York restaurants, with countless closures, it's a pleasure to hang out at Russ & Daughters on a busy Saturday morning.

    Daniel Goldstein (American Theatre Director) - Daniel Dreams of Sushi

    Remember the film Jiro Dreams of Sushi? Dirty Linen chats to American theatre director Daniel Goldstein who saw the film, became obsessed with Jiro's Tokyo restaurant, and went to extraordinary lengths to have a meal there. Was it worth it? Daniel is in Melbourne to reopen the musical Come From Away, our first big post-lockdown production. It's a great show that celebrates kindness and connection, making it more timely than ever.

    Filipinos are the fifth largest migrant group in Australia so why isn't Filipino food better known, eaten and understood?

Dive in for adobo, champorado, coconut vinegar and all the pig!
