Or as he explains: "I know how much people enjoy both making family favourites and trying something new and a little challenging, and this series has got something for everyone who enjoys cooking at home – and I stress the word enjoy!"
This week he's heading to the wonderful 5-star luxury of Sheen Falls Lodge in Kenmare, Co Kerry. He is going to prepare 'A Trio of Kerry Lamb' alongside head chef Philip Brazil.

Presented by Russell Norman, who has set up seven restaurants in London over the years, he reveals the highs and lows of the business.

Blue Bloods – Double Bill, 9pm, RTÉ Two **New Series**
Hard to believe but Blue Bloods is now in its fourth series and tonight it returns to RTÉ Two for not one but two episodes. First up is Unwritten Rules and the title is clearly explained after the murder of a police officer. Frank makes it his mission, and that of the NYPD, to bring the suspect to justice. However that's before Erin is forced to release him due to lack of evidence. Naturally tensions are running high in the Reagan household. In the next episode, The City that Never Sleeps, a famous actor shadows Danny as research for a new role but when the movie star is stabbed in action, the station tries their best to keep a lid on events. Think The Hard Way with Michael J Fox and James Wood, only with slightly less comedy.
