Recently there have been a series of three free events that were held in conjunction with The Book Show on Radio National where authors come and talk about various food related topics and then they were played on the radio a few days later and are still available for download on the website.

Toni Jordan, Morris Gleitzman and Andrea Goldsmith talked about the role of food, of food memories in the life of the writer. Other questions include comparing the writing process to the cooking process, about how fiction nourishes the reader, the danger of putting recipes that you haven't actually made in your book, the love of cheese and more.
