Episode 1 – Cabinteely, Co. Dublin to Wellington, NZ
In this episode, we meet retired deputy principal Liz Valloor in Cabinteely, Co. Dublin, and Catherine travels to Wellington, New Zealand.
In wellington we pay a visit to The Museum of New Zealand, Te Papa Tongarewa and Wildlife Sanctuary, Zealandia where we find out the culinary uses of some of the plants. The people of Wellington love their coffee so Catherine visits Mojo Coffee Bar to find out what make’s New Zealand’s coffee so unique, she learns about Maori foods at Karaka Café and from Maori Chef Rex Morgan at his Boulcott Sreet Bistro, she pays a visit to the NZ Parliament Buildings to meet top Kiwi Chef Shaun Clouston to taste one of his signature dishes + meets fellow Irish man Shane Harmon, CEO of Westpac Stadium in Wellington where Catherine also get’s taught how to perform the haka!
Liz rustles up the dish that reminds James of home in Cabinteely, the Fish Molee a Kerlan Fish curry with lemon rice. Catherine then travels to Wellington to hopefully faithfully replicate Liz’s dish and bring a taste like home over to James.
