Women’s Shoes and Mushrooms with Michael Fox

Michael Fox, co-founder of the plant-based meat company, Fable Food Co, joins the program today. The interview was recorded in the depths of The Coronavirus during April, just twelve months after the collapse of Michael’s previous venture, a fashion startup called Shoes of Prey – Michael tells us more about this during the interview.

Since launching on the menu at Dinner by Heston, things have continued to look positive with Blackbird Ventures and Grok Ventures both having backed the business.

They’ve got deals with Woolworths, Marley Spoon and more, so if you haven’t heard of Fable yet, you will soon.

Not The Bat And Ball with Skye Blackburn

This ‘cricket’ doesn’t involve a bat and ball. It’s the insect that’s creeping in from Eastern cuisines. 

Skye Blackburn farms them, just outside of Sydney (with her business, Edible Bug Shop – the largest edible insect farm in Australia) and is currently expanding to a much larger site, due to their demand. 

She has a strong position on edible bugs and the future of insect farming – as an alternative protein and culinary ingredient.
