The food we cook and eat is so intricately shaped by our lives and what we've done and the people we've met. Some meals can conjure up the most powerful memories and bring people back into our lives in a very evocative way. Joe Marshall is a former vegetarian turned practised cooker of roasts - no mean feat on the river barge he calls home. And every single Sunday meal he makes has a much deeper, more emotional significance.
With thanks to Spark London, where I first saw Joe tell a version of this story http://stories.co.uk/
I played a version of this piece at my Potluck event at the previous Hearsay International Audio Arts Festival in Kilfinane - with thanks to Diarmuid Macintyre, Diarmuid O'Leary and the festival team http://www.hearsayfestival.ie/
