Food, Family & Friends Podcast 20: Professor of Public Health Grant Schofield & Dietitian Caryn Zinn

grant-schofieldGrant is leading the wave of change in how we think about our health, including how we exercise, how we sleep, how we (and our kids) play, and how we connect. The central place real food plays in our health and wellbeing, and a desire to help people “be the best they can be”, drives his research and practice.

Dubbed “The Fat Professor”, he is at the forefront of challenging the widespread fat phobia that has pushed us to eat a diet full of processed, carb-laden food. “It’s time to help the world change,” he says. Prof Grant is a respected PhD public health academic of 20 years with all the boxes ticked in a high-achieving career.

 

 

 

Caryn is a Registered Dietitian and sports nutritionist. Her master’s degree was in the area of sports nutrition and her

caryn-zinndoctoral studies focused on how to achieve sustainable weight loss. Caryn currently combines academic work with her own clinical dietetic practice.

She believes this mix of academia and practice keeps her real and on the cutting edge of knowledge (and busy).

Special thanks to Grant and Caryn for being on the podcast.

Food, Family & Friends Podcast 19: Jono Beattie – Chef & Owner of Texture Catering, Auckland NZ

Chef Jono BeattieJono Beattie is an example of a young man blessed with an innate natural skill in creating plates of delicious food which appear as works of art. His passion for flavour and his love of nature translate to meals which seem too pretty to touch.

Jono’s aspiration to be a top Chef has seen him seek inspiration and education from around the world, where he moved from place to place to gain a breadth of experience before setting out to create his own unique dining offering.

He is now the whisper around town as guests privileged to have had his bespoke, private dining experience are entranced by the degustation in-home restaurant he is able to create.

Jono is generous and giving. He cooks for charities and guides others in realising their own talents. His quiet humility is what is most endearing – along with his truly amazing ability with food.

This has led to others within the industry taking note also and since this podcast was recorded Jono has cooked along side Chef’s Blakeman, Southon and Bosley and will be a Celebrity Chef for an upcoming Ora King Slamon 2016 Collaboration dinner series alongside David Schofiled and Makoto Tokuyama.

I am privileged to have met Jono through our mutual association with Ronald McDonald House Charity, and am excited to watch his achievements and proud to call him a friend.

Jono’s Private Dining Experience is known as TEXTURE.

Find Jono on Facebook here and Instagram here.

Food, Family & Friends Podcast 18: Lalele Food Truck – Organic Gelato

Lalele foodtruck operators Mulan & Nathan with Food, Family & Friends Podcast host Vanessa Baxter (middle).

Lalele is the brainchild of Nathan and Mulan who set about coming up with a healthy delicious treat for their own children – and then sharing it with the world.  This is true small batch locally made, organic gelato.

Mulan a Chinese immigrant who worked 7 days a week in her parents Fruit and Veg shop was wooed by her customer Nathan who romantically (or strategically) encouraged her to join him for dinner and then romanced her until she became his wife.  They now have 4 children and a rather time hungry Food Truck, where they have combined their passion and experience into a business that has truly become their life.

From building their own production kitchen, to working as a family at all the Street Food venues they can find – this is a story of starting from scratch – of grit and determination. It is a moving tale of long nights followed by exhausting days.

Why do they do it? Because they are passionate about bringing their healthy options to the community.  They are uplifted by their customer feedback and the continued positive vibe they get when out in their truck. They love the community of other vendors, who are building their own community together.

This is not an episode to highlight the romance of the Food Industry, nor is it an effort to put you off.  More it is the story of a journey of one couple who have been compelled by their own passion for natural flavours and the dream to one day own a property where they can grow their produce and continue to produce an organic and vegan gelato range.

See Lalele Organic Facebook page for posts, photos, reviews and upcoming events they will be serving their Gourmet Vegan Popolato – Pops.

Food, Family & Friends Podcast 17: Ginny Grant – Senior Food Writer, Cuisine Magazine NZ

FoodFamilyFriends-WorldPodcasts-smallIf you are a foodie in New Zealand then you know of Ginny Grant. Her name is synonymous with well written recipes, up to date foodie news and she is often found at the yummiest of food events.

It took a lot of courage to eventually say hi to Ginny, I had revered her for years. As the Senior Food Writer for NZ’s famous Cuisine magazine I felt that she was unapproachable. How wrong I have been. Ginny is without doubt a lover of food and is also well educated and trained in her passion for cooking and writing – yet she is a warm and engaging woman who was more than happy to find time in her crazy schedule for a chat.

I feel hugely privileged to have had this opportunity and am so excited to share this episode with you.  Ginny shares her journey as a young Chef and foodie in London where she simply rocked up to The River Cafe and asked Rose Gray for a job.  Her determination and ‘get-it-done’ attitude are obvious and her love of food and family are paramount.  Ginny shares so much of herself and her philosophy around food and the journey it has woven around her own life, in this chat.

Settle in for a wonderful escapade into the real Ginny Grant – a self proclaimed over-lover of lemons, cumin, parsley and gin.

Note: for overseas listeners – try to get your hands on a copy of the NZ CUISINE Magazine – it is divine!

 

Special thanks to Ginny for coming on the podcast.
