The Vincast Episode 133 – Loic Avril from Dinner by Heston Melbourne

Loic Avril was destined to work with wine, considering he grew up in one of France’s most historic wine regions, and sharing of great wine and food was always important to his family.  His love of hospitality and restaurants came very early, from the age of ten in fact, and he was determined to follow a path in fine dining. After gaining experience in restaurants in the Loire Valley and northern England, he joined the team at The Fat Duck – at one point considered the best restaurant in the world – and soon received significant attention when he was named the global best young sommelier. When the restaurant relocated to Melbourne for six months he relocated, and decided to stay and run the wine program when it transitioned to Dinner by Heston.

The Vincast Episode 097 – Lee Tran Lam from The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry

Lee Tran Lam was ahead of the curve as far as food communication on several occasions. The first was when she started her own food blog about nine years ago, simply to chronicle her own journey of discovery in the world of food and dining. The second was to launch a podcast about food and dining, profiling some of the most exciting chefs and food people in Sydney. Considering she hosts what I consider to be the food equivalent of The Vincast – The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry – I thought it a great opportunity to find out what her experiences and influences are on this episode of the podcast.
