It's Double Fryday on Morning Brew. At 10.10 today we wake up Chef Jason Black Empire HK in his mountain retreat in Durban, South Africa. Today he has some classic bistro dishes for you. For Part 2 of our food bit we welcome, for one last time, Chef Wes Long. Wes has decided it's time to move back to the USA for more exciting culinary adventures. He's off soon, so today will be his MB swan song. At 12.10 we're off to the movies with film critic James Marsh who'll be reviewing A Star is Born, and Searching. Join us on Facebook Live.
It's Thursday on Morning Brew, and commentator Steve Vines joins us at 10.10 with a brand new Faustian tale especially for Hong Kong. Also, the government has a novel new addition to the square pegs and round holes file in dealing with unruly trees...blow them up...apparently (meanwhile the cops plan to carefully prune the next WW2 bomb they find beneath the streets of Wanchai). And, on an exponentially more serious note; yet another Hong Kong journalist has been assaulted in the line of duty in mainland China. Theatre of a different kind after 11 today as we meet two guys at the helm of the musical EVITA, which is currently playing at the Lyric Theatre: Resident Director Anton Luitingh, and Music Director Louis Zurnamer. MB Vet Dr. David Gething will be with us after 11.30 to talk broken bones and bladder stones. Also, he'll answer any of your questions. After 12, part 2 of our Ramadan food week special with former BBC lifestyle presenter Saadia Usmani. Motion specialist Chris Watts will be here to finish us off at 12.40 today with some osteoporosis and a pinch of eczema. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
