Episode 2 – Chef Alastair McLeod

Episode 2. Listen hereAlastairMc2

Despite the Irish brogue, chef Alastair McLeod has deep links to Australia. While his father was an Irish publican, his jazz singer mother’s family came from Erub Island in the Torres Strait. Raised in Belfast at the height of The Troubles, Alastair was classically trained in Europe but has chosen Brisbane, Queensland as his home.

He is a presenter with Channel Seven’s Queensland Weekender and Network 10’s Ready Steady Cook, as well as being the MC for the Good Food and Wine Shows around Australia.

We chat with Alastair about his early days stuffing too many mushrooms, Nigella’s marmite pasta, our changing dining habits, and why vegetables are the new star on our plates.
