A brand new cooking show is coming to RTÉ One with award-winning chef Mark Moriarty at the helm.

Cook-in is an eight-part series that aims to give home chefs a survival guide of easy-to-follow recipes for nutritious meals made from the humble contents of our kitchen fridges, cupboards and freezers. 

Starting on Wednesday, May 6th, at 8:30pm, Mark Moriarty will deliver recipes that make the most out of the food we have at home from non-perishables and tinned pulses to last night's leftovers.

Irish foodies will recognise Mark as a chef at the two-Michelin star restaurant The Greenhouse in Dublin and the star of RTÉ's Beyond the Menu

The young chef has been particularly busy since he teamed up with a not-for-profit initiative preparing meals for frontline staff fighting Covid-19 in the ICU of Naas General and Connolly hospitals, as well as four local nursing homes and community support meals via Gardaí in Kilcullen, Co Kildare.

Now, he is hoping to help the public face the daily challenges of eating well while supporting Irish food producers at the same time.

Speaking about the programme, Mark said: "It's all about using what you already have in the kitchen cupboard and giving it a new lease of life, seeing as we can’t head to the supermarket as frequently as usual.

"I’m aiming to keep things simple, using three or four steps for each dish but, hopefully, my experience as a chef and knowledge of ingredients can help elevate your cupboard essentials into a delicious dish."

Viewers are encouraged to get in touch with Mark with any foodie questions on cookin@appetitemedia.tv.
