All this month on Newstalk, we’ll be taking a look what the foods you eat may say about you!
Whether you’ve got the talented kitchen skills of your granny or the Deliveroo app gets a regular tap on your phone, most of us love our grub.
So this month on Newstalk we’re celebrating everything to do with food from the best dishes to try at home, to our relationship with those meals that mean something, to kitchen hacks that will make life that little bit easier.
All across the station there’ll be plenty of chat and craic to inspire and share in one of our nation’s favourite past times – digging in!
