PodcastOne launches Cooking With Richo
Chef Adrian ‘Richo’ Richardson will host a new cooking podcast in 2021, Cooking With Richo.
The PodcastOne offering will kick off with a theory episode to help listeners master different cooking techniques. From there, each episode will focus on one dish, with listeners cooking in “real time” with Richardson.
The award-winning chef has appeared on TV alongside the likes of Jamie Oliver, Gary Mehigan, and Miguel Maestre, as well as a guest appearance on MasterChef Australia, but he said an audio masterclass is the best way to teach people the fundamental skills of cooking.
“I’m really excited to be able to put together a podcast that shares all of my secrets, tips and tricks to cooking the most amazing dishes,” he said. “In a personal way such as podcasting, I can be in the listener’s ear guiding them through the steps of mastering each cooking technique.”
SCA’s head of podcasting for PodcastOne Australia, Grant Tothill, agreed podcasting would be an effective medium for the lessons.
“Cookbooks, cooking videos and TV programs tend to be highly-stylised and edited, leaving out a lot of the practical techniques of what it takes to master a dish. Often it’s all the little tips and tricks that are the difference between success and failure in the kitchen,” he said.
“We saw an opportunity to take an audio-first approach to have Richo teach people how to cook in a new fun way. It’s a cooking master class just for listeners and the great thing is they don’t have to say, ‘Yes Chef!’”
The podcast is available from January.
