Meet The Contestant
Grainne works as a Nurse. She has 2 daughters. Her eldest Alannah is a radio announcer for the Korean State Broadcaster in Seoul and her younger daughter Cassie works for an event management company in Dublin.
Peter has been living in Korea and travelling back and forth to Ireland, for 22 years. He is Irish/American and all of his siblings reside in California. His father is living in Hong Kong and is a renowned hospital architect and at 82 years of age still works.
Grainne describes her husband as her first and only love and they’ve been married 30 years! The longest time Peter and Grainne remain apart would be for a month to 7 weeks. They take turns to travel back and forth to see each other.
Grainne Hill Dish
In this episode, we meet Grainne Hill at the Irish National Stud, a very special place for both her and Peter, as this is where they first met! We chat to her about their love for horses which is what ultimately what brought Peter all the way to live and work in Jeju Island, South Korea.
Later Grainne rustles up the dish that reminds Peter of home in Kildare, a roast stuffed fillet of pork served with all the trimmings. Catherine then travels to Jeju in hope to replicate Grainne’s dish and bring a taste like home over to Peter.
