Dirty Linen – A Food Podcast with Dani Valent

Dirty Linen – A Food Podcast with Dani Valent

by

Dirty Linen covers the issues the hospitality industry finds hard to share in public – it’s all up for grabs and everything is on the table. Your host is food journalist Dani Valent. For 20 years, Dani has been writing about restaurants and the people who give them life. But she’s an outsider, a critic, a tourist, a fan. Despite hearing the stories and writing the tales, she’s never really understood what happens behind the scenes. Now it’s time to go deep. Dirty Linen sticks to one topic for a week, and comprises numerous interviews coming at the weekly issue from different perspectives. We also invite those with compelling additions and views to put themselves forward for supplementary episodes. It’s a unique structure for a unique industry. Dirty Linen goes there, stays there and shakes it all about. Dirty Linen is a Deep in the Weeds Production.
Mary-Jane Daffy is a veteran cafe opener, owner and adapter in Melbourne’s south-east. She’s launched a bunch of new businesses at Carter Lovett in Elsternwick over the past six months and is wondering which will persist as we creep out of lockdown. MJ is a clear thinking pragmatist with strong views on hospo’s pre-COVID problems – we talk staffing, wages, prices, surcharges and community. She’s a gem.
