Ep. 6 Part 1 - Lee Tran Lam

Roots Podcast

Episode 65: Melting Pot (with Lee Tran Lam and Michelle Rennex)

Race Matters

Food has been seen as a marker of "multiculturalism" for forever – we all know at least one old white guy who reckons his penchant for Chinese takeaway food absolves him of all racism. But the Western food industry – from what we deem as 'fine dining', to which critics' opinions we value, to what we see on-screen – is whitewashed AF. So food writer and radio host Lee Tran Lam started @diversityinfoodmedia.au, dedicated to shining a light on the many incredible people working in food in this country who aren’t straight white chef bros. We chat with Lee Tran about what led to launching that account, her experience navigating the industry over the years, and moving beyond the Ratatouille-style stereotype of the cranky white restaurant critic. Plus – did you watch Masterchef: Back To Win? The season just gone by has created a buzz like never before, with personal cultural stories being told on national, mainstream TV, not to mention Asian food cooked by Asian people AND judged by an Asian woman. Unheard of! Millie Roberts speaks to Junkee writer and avid Masterchef live-tweeter Michelle Rennex about why this season resonated so hard, and the limitations of this representation.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Episode 69: Master Of Buns (with Lee Tran Lam)

The Mitchen with Andrew Levins and Mitch Orr

We recorded this episode with one of our favourite regular guests Lee Tran Lam yesterday after lunch. On our ways home we received the news about our friend Jeremy Strode, an incredibly kind and generous chef who passed away early this week. He's someone who has appeared on the show in our early days and has probably inspired almost every other guest we've had on since. We'll speak about Jeremy and his legacy many, many times in the future but Mitch and I decided to record a short intro over the phone that we added to this episode this morning. Rest in peace Jeremy. Our love to his family, friends and fans. After our short, badly recorded intro, our episode with Lee Tran Lam begins. We talk about Australian junk food, women in the food industry, Master of None and how good Momofuku Seiobo is. Make sure you check out Lee Tran's podcast The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry!

Lee Tran Lam from The Unbearable Lightness Of Being Hungry

The Vincast - a wine podcast with The Intrepid Wino

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.

Episode 28: Live From The MCA (with Pat Nourse, Dan Hong, Lee Tran Lam & Giovanni Paradiso)

The Mitchen with Andrew Levins and Mitch Orr

We recorded a live episode in front of an audience at the MCA Artbar at the end of April, with special guests Pat Nourse (Gourmet Traveller), Lee Tran Lam (The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry, Good Food), Dan Hong (Mr Wong, Ms G's) and Giovanni Paradiso (10 William St, Fratelli Paradiso). Over the course of a pretty manic hour we have a carbonara battle, play a round of celebrity heads, ask each other a few hard hitting questions and get heckled by the audience for swearing too much. Thanks so much to Kate Scardifield and everyone at the MCA for setting it all up!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
