Neven Maguire Home Chef (New 13- part series, programme eight) Wednesday 12th of March 2014 7.30pm RTÉ One
In this brand new series, Neven demonstrates two new recipes each week in his inimitable style, a style that has made him Ireland¹s most popular TV chef, and now also a hit in the US.
One recipe each week will be a family favourite, for example chicken tikka masala or apple pie or lamb tagine, and one recipe will be taken from Neven's recipe and adapted for the home chef.
In addition to the two recipes cooked in his own kitchen, Neven visits some of the best restaurants in the country, and gets a master class from each chef.
The restaurants Neven visits during this series include Ashford Castle in Mayo, Aniar (Galway, Michelin star), Mount Juliet in Kilkenny (awarded star in 2013), Ananda Indian Restaurant in Dundrum, Dublin¹s Merrion Hotel for afternoon tea, Ballyfin in Co Laois, and Les Gourmandises in Cork city.
Neven visits the Lough Erne Resort, the location for last year’s G8 summit, to meet Noel McMeel, the Executive Head Chef who prepares one of the dishes served to the world leaders: salmon with boxty.
Neven cooks Moroccan lamb tagine and roasted root vegetables with buttermilk dressing and coriander couscous and makes a delicious dessert of vanilla macaroons with chocolate and peanut butter cream.
