Describing himself as the "Phileas Fogg of food", it's clear that chef Randy Lewis is as passionate about travel as he is cuisine.

Originally from Edmonton, Alberta in Canada, Lewis has been working in restaurants since the ripe age of 13. From a young age, he has travelled the world, cooking in a wide variety of kitchens before he eventually landed in Lahinch, Co. Clare, where he opened his very own beachfront restaurant called Randaddy's.

Having spent years travelling the world for food inspiration, the chef spent much of the pandemic making the most of his Irish surroundings. In 2020, Lewis explored the incredible food scene surrounding Ireland's Ancient East - you can watch the series back here.

This year, to celebrate even more of the country's finest food producers, he will be going north to explore the best of Derry. Watch it back above.
