Episode 5

Fresh from the Farmers' Markets is a brand new eight-part series presented by food writer and broadcaster Clodagh McKenna.  The series follows Clodagh around Ireland as she visits farmers' markets, meeting artisan food producers and cooking dishes using ingredients which relate to the producer she has just met.

This week Clodagh visits Naas Market in Co. Kildare and meets John Rogan, fisherman and smoker.

Later in the kitchen Clodagh cooks summer fish stew, fried mackerel with salsa and smoked eel and celeriac.

Each week Clodagh visits a different farmers' market to meet and introduce the viewers to stall holders.  Concentrating on an individual stall holder's farm or place of work she then interviews them on their product offering. 

Then its back to the Village at Lyons in County Kildare where Clodagh uses the particular ingredients she has sourced in creating a menu that the viewers can re-create at home.
