"Neven's Food From The Sun" is a new 13-part series from the talented Cavan chef. Shot on location in Mallorca, and in Neven's own kitchen in Cavan, the series will bring a much-needed touch of sunshine into our lives.
Inspired by the authentic tastes and new flavours experienced when on holiday, Neven shows us how to recreate a range of wonderful recipes and bring a little sunshine into our own kitchens.
In each programme Neven focuses on a particular ingredient or type of ingredients and takes us through various recipes from different countries. From fish, lamb, fruit, olive oil and vegetables to tapas, mezes and desserts. Each programme and each recipe is introduced from a location which is relevant to the food being cooked.
Richard Corrigan is a man on a mission - he is determined that everybody should have a slice of the good life. Richard has set himself an enormous challenge. He wants to prove that it's possible to set up a farm on waste land in a city location and train an army of volunteers to run it.
Richard has found 24 willing volunteers and given them a plot of land in the heart of the city. The novice gardeners will be getting back to basics, growing fresh, seasonal food while fighting everything from drought to greenflies.
Can our inner city volunteers rise to the challenge and transform a plot of derelict wasteland into a lush and fertile smallholding? Can Richard start a national allotment revolution?
