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!
