Celebrity chef John Torode to showcase Ireland in Great Britain – in new food and travel TV series

‘John Torode's Ireland’ begins airing on the Food Network UK

John Torode's Ireland, a new food travelogue series hosted by celebrity chef John Torode, will begin airing on the Food Network UK this evening (21 July). It will also be available on discovery+.

The six-part TV series will follow the MasterChef judge as he tours, tastes and cooks his way around Ireland. Filming took place earlier this year and was supported by Tourism Ireland.

Viewers will see Torode visit Dublin, Wicklow, Wexford, Cork, Kerry, Clare and Galway. He’ll be meeting local food producers, farmers and some of our well-known chefs – including Darina Allen and Martin Shanahan. 

Julie Wakley, Tourism Ireland’s Head of Great Britain, said: “Tourism Ireland was delighted to support the production of this new six-part TV series, ‘John Torode's Ireland’. With a large audience right across Britain set to tune into the series on the Food Network UK and discovery+, it’s a great way to shine a spotlight on Ireland – showcasing our delicious local produce and beautiful landscapes. It will remind viewers across Britain that Ireland is a great choice for a holiday with a wonderful culinary offering.

“Publicity and broadcasts like this are a key element of Tourism Ireland’s programme of activity, to encourage travellers in Britain, and elsewhere around the world, to put the island of Ireland on their holiday wish-list.”
