Neven Maguire Home Chef (New 13- part series, programme eight) Wednesday 23rd of April 2014 7.30pm RTÉ One
In this new series, Neven demonstrates two new recipes each week in his inimitable style, a style that has made him Ireland's 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.
Programme Thirteen (Final Programme)
Cleaver East is Dublin chef Oliver Dunne’s latest restaurant, which opened in the Clarence Hotel last August. Customers are invited to enjoy four or five courses, presented in smaller dishes, rather than the traditional starter, main course and dessert.
In 2008, Oliver was the youngest chef in Ireland to win a Michelin star for Bon Appétit, his restaurant in Malahide. He shows Neven how to make braised belly of pork, one of the most popular items on the menu.
Neven’s own recipes in this final programme of the series feature the ultimate beef burger with crispy potato wedges,and a delicious dessert of Toasted Coconut and Malibu Parfit with Pineapple Carpaccio and Lime Meringue.
