"Salting the cabbage helps to leach the excess liquid and season
the slaw," says Wall. "Getting rid of the excess water can only be
a good thing - a soggy wet slaw is a very sad slaw indeed."
Each fortnight we round up the most interesting characters from the food world for your listening pleasure. We chat to chefs, cooks, authors, bar tenders and baristas - anyone who has something new and interesting to say about the way we like to eat and drink.
