Series 3: Programme 10

Neven Maguire

Barry's and Brodericks

Tea and cake is another natural combination, and in this final programme of series 3, Neven visits Barry's Tea, the only tea blended in Ireland specifically for the Irish palate. The company has been in business since 1901 and Denis Daly the chief blender has been blending teas for 40 years. Neven joins Denis as he tastes teas sent in from all over the world. The tea in Barry's Gold Blend comes from India, Rwanda and Kenya and comprises 10 different teas - the exact blend remains a secret.

Neven's second visit this week is to Broderick's, a small company that has been making cakes for 30 years. Neven visits the factory to see where new recipes are tested and packaging designed - and where a special cake for Neven will be created.

Neven makes a very tasty blade of beef and thyme hotpot, using tea, carrots, onions, celeriac, bay leaves, thyme, baby onions and smoked bacon and chervil root. And viewers with a sweet tooth will enjoy Neven's Irish tea bread and French toast.
