Food Bytes with Sarah Patterson clocks 250 episodes 

Food Bytes with Sarah Patterson is celebrating 250 episodes and five years since launching in the latest episode featuring MasterChef host Melissa Leong.

The series, created by Sarah Patterson and Kevin Hillier, started as a column in a suburban newspaper before being adapted into a podcast which later drew the attention of ACE Radio Network.

Just over a year ago, an offer came their way and Food Bytes joined the ACE Radio Network where it is now also broadcast across regional Victoria and southern NSW as a one-hour show on Sunday mornings. 

ACE Radio Group Content Director Mat Cummings likes what the show brings to the table. 

“Food Bytes as a program on the radio is every bit as compelling as a podcast and the two complement each other very well. The radio audience gets to sample interesting content they might not be aware of and in their own time they can explore the podcast and go deeper into these wonderful conversations. The depth and strength of the guests that appear on Food Bytes is of huge appeal to our audience,” Cummings said.

“Every week we hear someone with an interesting story, an Australian we’ve come to know and love. The conversation flows just as it would with a cuppa across the kitchen table. There are some examples of this kind of crossover where a podcast becomes a radio program in its own right, but it’s a path that should be explored as audiences crave high standards of bespoke content making.”

Show creators and hosts Sarah and Kevin are just enjoying the ride.

“We love doing the show and are delighted that the guests and the listeners are enjoying the experience as much as we do.”
