Over eight episodes, Lyndey Milan explores the Counties of Ireland. She gets under the rolling green skin of the country to reveal the unexpected, meeting extraordinary characters that take her to places she would never have known but for them, and of course... tasting and cooking incredible dishes that reveal the extraordinary and surprising depth of delicious Irish produce and food. And as much as Ireland is about food, it is also about the people who make that food. Lyndey celebrates Irish culture with larger than life characters who take her by the hand, sweeping her around corners, up alleys and lanes, and into little known corners of the country to discover their rich and deep seated passions.
Lyndey Milan, Australian home cook hero, combines a thirst for life and a sense of fun with a love of good food and sparkling shiraz. A familiar face on television and in print, she been instrumental in changing the way Australians think and feel about food and wine for over twenty-five years. She has boundless enthusiasm for Australian agriculture with comparable knowledge of food and wine producers, industry stalwarts and trends. Hospitality of the table is her catchphrase, as evidenced by her numerous television appearances, eight best-selling books and countless culinary appearances over the years as she maintains her position at the forefront of Australian cuisine. Lyndey co-presented Lyndey & Blair’s Taste of Greece, currently being repeated on SBS ONE, which received rave reviews and is now available on DVD. Lyndey contributes to Selector, a quarterly magazine for food and wine enthusiasts after ten years at ACP including as Food Director of The Australian Women’s Weekly and co-host of daily television series Fresh.
Contrary to the popular stereotype, Lyndey shows that there is more to Irish food than the potato, as she unearths a bounty of fabulous local produce and traditional recipes. No experience is left behind as Lyndey combines the very best moments and tastes to create dishes that will capture the essence of each region by delicious mouthful, and with every morsel comes a story of the culture, a memory of the people and a love for the sights, sounds and taste of Ireland!
