grace-love-confident-cookingMove over, Jamie Oliver, Grace Love is in town.

Grace Love is the owner of Bliss Organic Cafe and has just released a cookbook, Confident Cooking.

We talk to her about food, business, cookbooks, recipes, and, basically, what the ingredients are to become a successful author and business owner.

Tony Drake’s comment last week about Adelaide being a Goldilocks town; not too big, not too small, not too fast, not too slow, has struck a chord with Adelaideans. Two of them feature in the Adelaide Visa Council and one of them, Jessica McQuillan, joins us from New York to compare the two cities.

It’s Royal Adelaide Show time (starts tomorrow, September 5, 2014) and Jessica at Tuckers Natural has sent us all South Australian Goodie Bag showbags. We rustle through them. They’re $20 at this year’s show and include a number of items you collect at the stalls so you get to meet your makers. Delicious!

We introduce our new segment, suggested by Alice Carr, Is It News?

Brett goes a little retro by choosing music from Green Trampoline. A divine track.

Tom and Cecil from the Cognitive Dissonance podcast rant about New York, from a Chicago perspective.

This ties in with the Goldilocks comment by Tony Drake last week, which, when shared on social media got some interesting responses, which we’ll hear in the Visa Council.

One person piqued my interest intently, Jessica McQuillan, and Adelaidean living in New York. We chat to her about the Big Apple and her home town.
