    Congratulations Barry and Haley! James should definitely be in all future podcasts. If I could only do one take out food forever it would be Malaysian. I’ve learned authentic Chinese cooking from my in-laws, Thai food from a Thai born & raised friend & the same for Italian, Greek, Mexican, Cuban & Puerto Rican & Ethiopian, but Malaysian food is still hard for me.

    As for more Grilled podcast questions, I’d ask each of you to A) Name a dish you cook or bake that friends & family think of as your signature dish. B)If you could specialize in a particular ethnic cuisine what would it be and why? C) James is an incredible baker so have you ever made any breads with sweet or savory ingredients?

    To add to James’ fact, I think that in Korean culture, whoever is younger is suppose to turn away as they’re taking the shot as well.

    Oh! Also – the ‘Best Soundbite’ should be attributed to Barry 🙂

S4 E10 – Is MSG not actually bad for you?

There’s a load of negative stigma attached to the consumption of MSG (Monosodium Glutomate) which is a naturally occurring flavour enhancer that’s usually used in take-away foods. But what if we were to tell you it’s not actually bad for you? In this episode the guys delve into the subject and see if they can taste the difference between a normal dish and one where MSG has been added.

S4 E9 – Is eating seasonally worth it?

It can be really difficult to keep on top of what’s in season and even more difficult when you realise it might actually be more economical to eat veggies from further away! Baz whips up some *ahem* delicious smoothies to taste this week and the boys discuss some of their fave London spots.

S4 E6 – Taste testing aphrodisiacs?!

S4 E6 – Taste testing aphrodisiacs?!

Of course this podcast had to be valentine’s themed…kind of. This episodes explores weird and wonderful aphrodisiacs and as expected, things get a little bit (very) weird. P.S. this entire podcast theme was Jamie’s idea…can you tell?

S4 E5 – Would you eat insects if the world depended on it?!

The future of food is constantly changing and perceptions of food vary drastically from country to country. What may be considered as a delicacy in one country could be seen as revolting in another. An interesting topic that’s been cropping up recently is the use of insects as a more sustainable form of protein. What are your thoughts?
