Community radio Cambridge105 – Flavour105 : Alan Alder regularly  interviews me as the resident Food Scientist providing culinary enlightenment. As entertainment but also a challenge to perceptions of Fanny Cradock  I appeared at the Museum of Cambridge. Just before the event Alan interviewed me about making her special party foods for Christmas including a giant sausage roll.

In order to showcase local food bloggers, I have developed a series where I interview key Cambridge based ones. The most recent is  Jo Christy (Miss Sue Flay) who explains about her food blog and her television appearances. I also interviewed Michelle Alston about developing her blog The Last Food Blog. 

Previously I interviewed Pina Broccoli Anaia about her experiences hosting Cambridge based foodie events and her blog Onetwoculinarystew. All these interviews are in the boxed sections below.

My first two interviews were with Sian Anderson about the  Cambridge-based food and lifestyle blog Bonewhitechina that she and Alex Higgs write on Cambridge105fm for Flavour in November 2016 

Prior to this the local food blogger and columnist Laura Donohue talked with me about developing her blog Crumbs On The Table and about her work as a writer and teacher with her company Cottage garden cookery on  Cambridge105 for Flavour in September 2016.

In addition,  I have interviewed market stall holders at Ely Saturday Farmers market and specialists at the Cambridge Food sustainability network.
