Programme 2 - Mount Joy

In the second programme of the new series, Richard Corrigan is in Mountjoy Jail where 550 meals a day are prepared under very restrictive conditions.  Having observed the strict regime and conditions under which meals are cooked and served, Richard sets himself a very ambitious challenge. 

Apart from changing elements of the Mountjoy menu, Richard decides to take two prisoners and have them cook an elaborate meal for the governor and 12 of his guests.  The prisoners will literally be learning on the job, having just one day to hone their culinary skills and cook a meal.  Can they stand the pressure?  Will they be up to task? Or has Richard finally bitten off more than he can chew with this challenge?
