In this edition of Flavour, we report on a ‘Community Cropshare’ harvest. Alan gets the lowdown on the latest Cookbooks, Matt tries to cook something simple and fails! And we focus on some local producers in light of the upcoming Food & Farming Awards.
All served up with some leafy-green music and side order of Alan’s newspaper reviews.
That’s Flavour. An hour of goodness, locally produced and virtually fat-free!
