Fresh from the Sea
Fresh From the Sea is the third series in Clodagh McKenna's popular "Fresh From..." food journeys around Ireland.
In this tasty new series, the emphasis is on food from the sea as top food writer Clodagh travels from Donegal to Waterford and from Galway to Dublin to meet some of the fishermen, fish farmers and fish processors who are responsible for producing some of the most highly-prized seafood in the world.
As with her previous series' (Fresh From The Farmers' Markets), Clodagh concentrates on the small-scale fishermen and producers, rather than the large corporations. In each of the seven programmes, Clodagh visits a top seafood restaurant to cook a dish using one of the programme's featured species.
As well as all the delicious food Clodagh sources in Fresh From The Sea, she also visits people and organisations who are part of Ireland's maritime community, including: The Valentia Lifeboat, the Dunmore East coastguard unit and Sikoursky helicopter, the Malin Head weather station, Liam and Martin Wylie, boat builders from Cork, Oliver and Sean O'Driscoll, fish stall owners and champion fish-filleters and Bobby Nash, an artist who creates 3D pictures from nautical charts.
Fresh From the Sea was produced and directed by David Hare and is proudly supported by Bord Iascaigh Mhara, the Irish Sea Fisheries Board.
