This week on Hot Grease, our hostess Nicole Taylor sits down with food critic and writer Charles Campion, and Don Sloan from Oxford Gastronomica. Tune in to hear Nicole’s weekly food headlines. Charles, and Don talk about Oxford Gastronomica’s influence on food culture in Britain, and the upcoming Oxford Literary Festival writing contest. Author and cooking instructor Susan O’Brien joins Nicole via the phone lines to discuss chia seeds and her Hot Five vegan suggestions for Easter or Passover meals. This episode was brought to you by Fairway Market.

“Until Oxford Gastronomica, no one took food and drink very seriously in Britain. There was little in the way of good courses. I firmly believe the more that you can stir up a bit of interest and give it a little cred, the better it is.” — Charles Campion on Hot Grease

“Chia dates back to the early Aztec days, and for many years was considered to be like money- like gold.” — Susan O’Brien on Hot Grease
