The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry | A Sydney Food Blog

New podcast – Myffy Rigby, Good Food Guide and Good Food Month

September 16th, 2015  |  Published in Latest, Podcasts  |  2 Comments

Since I last talked to Myffy Rigby, she’s left Time Out Sydney (and boy did she go out memorably – one of her last hurrahs was an incident involving a nude bartender and the dog track). As a follow-up act, she became the current editor of the Good Food Guide and the creative director of Good Food Month.

In this podcast, we talk about the sleep she’s lost over working on the guide, and how she tracked down the guests she wanted for Good Food Month (including the ones who got away, but hopefully will appear next year – I have my fingers crossed so badly about Brooks Headley making it on 2016’s bill)!


Myffy also talks about highlights from the Good Food Month program and speculates on why ramen attracts so many nerds. Plus, her collaboration with the Porteno crew on the Recipes For A Good Time cookbook (and her possible regrets about it), what the Gelinaz Shuffle was really like and her favourite places to eat and drink in Sydney (including where to get the “best pasta in the city”).

You can listen to this episode on iTunes or download it via RSS or directly. And major thanks to everyone who has ultra-kindly spread the word about this podcast or left a rating or comment in the iTunes store (tip of the hat especially to @mabvsfood, @tobywilsonau and @feliciazotalis) – it makes all the late-night editing sprees worth it!

    Hi there, just listened to this podcast…loved it by the way! I tried to find the first podcast with Myffy on your site but am struggling. I am probably totally going to the wrong place, can you point me in the right direction? I have been downloading directly to my PC….

Hi, I'm Lee Tran Lam. When not blogging with my mouth full, I'm usually writing, presenting Local Fidelity on FBi radio, making zines, producing podcasts or continually breaking promises about how I really am gonna get through my book pile one day.

All the good pictures on this blog are by photography ace (and patient boyfriend), Will Reichelt, (all the dodgy ones can be credited to me)!

The lovely banner is by friend and ultra-talented illustrator Grace Lee.

This site redesign was made possible by the next-level generosity and expertise of Daniel Boud, whose code-tinkering ways are only outranked by his seriously inspired way with a camera.

You can read more about my co-conspirators here.

This is a blog I do for pure fun and zero influence – there's no sponsorship, sneaky advertorial or advertising. I pay for all the food mentioned, 'cos it seems the ethical thing to do.


This is a blog about eating and drinking in Sydney, Australia (with the odd cross-border or off-topic detour). BYO appetite.
