From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:20 pm on 26 August 2015

Rachel Taulelei is the CEO of Yellow Brick Road which provides high quality well sourced seafood to New Zealand restaurants. She's also founder of the WEllington City Market and shucks a mean oyster. The last in our short Feature series with Amelia Nurse - who's looking at NZ 's restaurants in the 1960s, and today some of the characters from that time. Amelia finds out that to fit in, you'd best learn to dance on tables and swear like a sailor! Mike Murphy runs Kokako a cafe and coffee roastery in Grey LYnn. He's just come back from a trip to Papua new Guinea to visit some of the people who grow the beans that end up in your flat whites. Ben Hurley is an award winning stand up comedian who's eaten in the best and worst restaurants of New Zealand as he travels from town to town doing gigs. Each week he joins us to talk about his best eating discoveries in New Zealand's smaller towns.
