Catherine Fulvio’s exciting new food & travel television programme ‘Tastes Like Home’ kicks off this Friday 18th November on RTE1 at 7.30pm and will run over six episodes.
‘Tastes like Home’ will see Catherine Fulvio visit families across Ireland who teach her how to make their favourite family dish, before travelling to locations around the world to recreate their ‘taste of home’ for family members now living abroad.
Catherine meets Irish diaspora in Europe, America and The Middle East whilst bringing a sprinkling of enthusiasm and a large dollop of expertise to this travel cookery show. ‘Tastes like Home‘ is more than a food show with a dash of travel, this is a format that will strike a chord with every Irish family as it takes you on a whistle-stop tour of six Irish families and their loved one’s home away from home.
“With such a vast Irish diaspora and food evoking such strong connections with place and memory, it will make for exciting viewing. Catherine will bring these new foodie adventures to the table along with her usual sprinkling of enthusiasm and a large dollop of expertise.” says Brian Walsh from RTE.
Catherine is very excited about the show airing and believes it will strike a chord with audiences across Ireland who love home cooking and have family members living abroad and she says: “It’s funny how a recipe represents a family, a place and a time, a tradition is simply a sense of togetherness,” she says. “Taste is the most evocative of all senses and can transport us back to our childhoods, to a memorable meal or special moment in time and I have no doubt this show is really going to resonate and connect with the viewers from the outset”.
In the first episode, Catherine visits sisters Linda Kennedy & Fiona Kennedy. Linda is based in Dublin and Fiona is living in San Sebastián and their taste of home was Fish Pie. During the show Catherine will visit San Sebastian’s foodie corners and explore some of the best pintxos bars in the city, enjoying the delicious snacks along the way before she heads to Fiona Kennedy’s home away from home to recreate a very special fish pie!
