Episode 6 – Cavan, Ireland to Melbourne, Australia
This week, we first meet Felicity and her husband Peter at Killykeen Forest Park to find out who is the family member living away from home. Later Felicity rustles up the dish that reminds Eoin of home in Drumelis, Atlantic Seafood cooked in a coconut broth, basil & truffle mash + crisp green veg.
Catherine then travels to Melbourne where she visits the Queen Victoria Market the largest open air market in the Southern Hemisphere, we learn about native bush food at the South Melbourne Organic Store, we take a ride on The Colonial Tramcar Restaurant, the only Tramcar Restaurant in the World, and drop into the Hotel Windsor to experience their famous afternoon tea. As many Asians populate the city today, there are lots of Asian eateries to be found so Catherine visits a dumpling house which is ranked among the best in the world, followed by a visit to the famous Yarra Valley Wine Region and The Fergusson Winery for a wine tasting before ending up in the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie where they make their own chocolate. It wouldn’t be a trip to Oz without a visit to the iconic Neighbours TV Show so we had to the set, meet the cast and watch them recording the new series plus we take a trip to the real “Ramsey Street’.
Then it’s time for Catherine to pull out all the stops and recreate Felicity’s seafood dish and hopefully it will still taste like home for Eoin.
