The Foodie returns to BBC Radio Ulster on Sunday, October 11 with presenter Kim Lenaghan on a journey across Northern Ireland to uncover world class ingredients that are produced locally.
In this six part series Kim – a keen cook and self-professed enthusiastic eater -will search out the flavours of autumn as she meets dedicated producers, eager home cooks and talented chefs creating culinary magic all around Northern Ireland.
Kim said: “This is my favourite time of year in every way. I love that golden glow and the colours of the leaves as they change with the colder weather, but also the animals have had great summer grazing, we can enjoy all the bounty of the harvest and the seas are teeming with great shellfish.”
Autumn is the season for slow cooking and comfort food and listeners will hear all about the amazing array of local ingredients – from apples and venison to oysters and oats – that Northern Ireland has to offer.
Series Two of The Foodie starts on BBC Radio Ulster on Sunday October 11 at 12.30pm.
