Rank #1: Episode 28: Avocado LIVE

Podcast cover
Read more
For the very first Ingredipedia live event as part of the Emerging Writer's Festival, we chose the big one. The avocado - the world's most Instagrammed ingredient (probably). We cooked it, blended it, got to the bottom of conspiracies and traced it around the world. Find out what you missed.

Rank #3: Episode 39: Mango

Podcast cover
Read more
It's sweet, it's tropical, it's Christmassy. But it's also fever-inducing, rashy and incites rage. It's the mango and while we're all for it, you need to understand the dangers.

Rank #4: Episode 40: Melon

Podcast cover

A waste of space or a flavour sensation? It depends if it's wrapped in prosciutto, apparently. Yes we're back for 2018 and we're talking about melons. How we eat them, where they came from and how to blow them up.

Rank #5: Episode 21: Capsicum

Podcast cover
Read more
We should make it clear that we don't hate capsicum. It's just a stupid, pointless vegetable that makes lousy snacks, makes you sick, costs too much and makes Pixar re-cut their movies. That's all.

Rank #6: Episode 31: Pasta

Podcast cover

It's comforting, readily available and amazing with clams. But where does it ACTUALLY come from? And why do we bother eating it in restaurants? And how has it caused a social media storm in Melbourne? And how is it responsible for THE GREATEST JINGLE OF ALL TIME? Find out in our pasta episode.

Rank #7: Episode 32: Coconut

Podcast cover
Read more
It gets us drunk, smells nice and it's good for us. But it's also the symbol of the opulence and corruption of a disgraced despot. So yeah, our relationship with coconut is kind of complicated.

Egg yolk, oil, something acidic. That's what goes into the creamy, rich joy that is mayonnaise. Or is it? We deconstruct it, construct it again, put things in it, explore why it's loved, hated and mixed with green jelly. Also, expert help from Ben's mum Gail.

What comes first? The egg. Well, it comes first for 2017 as we return from our hiatus. And what about eggs? How did they make their mark on 80s movie cocktails? Do they ruin hamburgers? And can humans hatch them?

Rank #11: Episode 30: Figs

Podcast cover

It’s time to talk about one of the greatest ingredients in the entire world: figs. Yes, they’re out of season so Em had to ask her talented sister to paint a picture of them because they are unavailable in ALL THE STORES. What do figs have to do with genitals? Ben looks into that. Why is Maggie Beer burnt fig, salted caramel and honeycomb ice-cream the best flavour ever? Em looks into that. Plus: a theory into why Australian athletes didn’t perform so well at the recent Olympics, and a fail-proof plan on how they can do better next time.

We figured it was time to add some culture to our podcast. SEE WHAT WE DID THERE? But seriously, we look at why it is spelled 37 different ways, how it's advertised and why it may be the perfect work snack.

Rank #13: Episode 27: Milk

Podcast cover

It's the giver of life and perfect for a tradie-style smoko. But what's its history, when did it stop get it delivered, is it really in chocolate and most importantly, can it be mixed with gin?
