Only one episode in and Mitch has been kicked out of his own kitchen - so we relocated to the downstars dining table at ACME and welcomed return guest Mike Eggert (Pinbone) plus new guests Danielle Alvarez (Merivale, ex-Chez Panisse), Rich Hargreave (Waterman's Lobster Co., ex-Momofuku Seiobo) and Cam Fairbairn (ACME) to a lunch that replaced food with passionate rants about the recent Time Out and Gourmet Traveller awards, having a dish stolen by another restaurant, the best vegetarian options in Sydney and the never ending battle between the kitchen and the floor.
The Mitchen is a new weekly food podcast recorded at Mitch Orr's kitchen table in Sydney. Hosted by food writer/DJ Andrew Levins and chef Mitch Orr (ACME), each week they invite four mates from the food world over to discuss and make jokes about any recent big announcements in food and dining.
For our first episode we are joined by four talented and hilarious chefs - Mike Eggert (Pinbone), Analiese Gregory (ACME, ex-Quay), Kerby Craig (Ume) and Clayton Eggert (Automata, ex-Momofuku Seiobo). Together we mourn the recent closure of Pinbone, find out how to pronounce Clayton's new restuarant, react to the news of Noma hosting a pop-up restaurant in Sydney next year, argue over our favourite sandwiches and take a few shots at our good friend Dan Hong.
Pull up a seat at The Mitchen table. There's not much room but you're always welcome.
