Bláthnaid Ní Chofaigh
Bláthnaid Ní Chofaigh is an accomplished journalist, presenter and broadcaster.
A fluent Irish speaker, she has been a presenter of Sin É, and reporter for RTÉ News and Current Affairs, covering stories as diverse as The Clinton Visit & The Special Olympics.
Bláthnaid showed a different side of herself in 2004 when was one of the contestants on 'Inside 252', RTÉ's week-long television and radio reality show for People in Need.
Bláthnaid's menu for The Restaurant is a reflection of her interests in travelling and food. The beef on her menu is from the same Co. Meath butcher who supplied the beef for her wedding reception.
Her seafood dish is one that reminds her of holidays spent in Spain and her upside down plum cake is a recipe she learned from her mother.
It's an eclectic menu that Bláthnaid is presenting. Will the critics' praise be heard tonight, or will Bláthnaid's food be greeted with stony silence? Find out in The Restaurant.
