Welcome to a new week on Morning Brew. Robbie McRobbie will give you all of this week’s rugby news at 10.10. After 10.30 NYC correspondent Tracy Quan wants to tell you about how a recent walk around town examining the outdoor restaurant scene led to thoughts of New York in 1969, when when Norman Mailer ran for mayor. At 11.10 we’ll meet authors (of The Silver Way) Peter Gordon and Juan José Morales, with their new book “Painter and Patron: The Maritime Silk Road in the Códice Casanatense”. Put very simply, it explores some of the hidden stories behind a set of 16th century illustrations depicting life on the ancient trade route. After 12, we’re off to the UK for two reasons. One is to listen to some music by one of the country’s foremost contemporary ensembles, but we’ll also chat to the Delta Saxophone Quartet’s baritone player, Chris Caldwell, about musical life post-Brexit and during COVID.

13/07/2020 - Peter Gordon and Juan José Morales – Painter and Patron: The Maritime Silk Road in the Códice Casanatense
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 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.
