Monday morning after a weekend of craziness, but we press on regardless, as James Ross sits in for Phil today. No rugby today as Robbie McRobbie takes a short break, but we do have William Nader, Director of Racing at the Hong Kong Jockey club (HKJC Racing), with the latest on the horses. Plus we focus on Italian food in Hong Kong, as part of the Italia Mia Festival. We'll be joined by Savio Pesavento of the Academy of Italian Cuisine and Dr Filippo Scevola of the University of Turin who'll tell us about the positive health benefits of a pinch of salt! After 11 the world of story-telling and we focus on a new opera-play called 'Anne & Zef' - about Anne Frank, victim of the Jewish Holocaust in World War II, and another young victim, Zef, killed in the Albanian war in the 90's. Composer Monique Krus, and conductor Vicky Shin will join us to tell all about the performance at Tai Kwun this weekend. Plus all that's best in music through until 1pm.

Welcome to Tuesday on Morning Brew. As James said yesterday, he and Phil will be swapping around a lot for the next three weeks. Phil’s here today, and at 9.40 we’ll catch up with our friend Janice Jensen from Nevis Animal Speak, for more doggy tales and advice. At 10.10 we meet British journalist and author Jonathan Chatwin, who’s in town to talk about his new book “Long Peace Street”. The street itself is in Beijing and it is runs between the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. It’s both symbolic and historic to Jonathan, as he sees it as the perfect example of “then and now” in China. After 10.30 Jarrod Watt will be with us for all the latest from Down Under, plus some great Aussie music. Dr. Merrin Pearse brings you his weekly eco-bit at 11.10. At 12.10 it’s back to Melbourne for this week’s chat with Business Futurist Morris Miselowski.(9:00am-1pm, email email@example.com )
