Sunday, Jan. 30, 2022 at Noon and 6 p.m. on KPBS TV / On Demand
On this episode, Mary Berry visits Ireland, where humble comfort food is at the heart of the local cuisine. As Mary discovers at Cork’s local food market, which is jam-packed with culinary delights, from fresh fish and steaming stews to beautiful breads and the famous Boxty potato pancake.
Cork was once the center of the world’s butter exchange, so Mary sets off in a sidecar to explore Cork’s famous butter roads. She stops along the way to sample some of Ireland’s famous butter before going in search of a traditional Irish cake that is said to tell your fortune.
Mary’s Irish adventure is interspersed with making simple, warming recipes, including a salmon and fennel one-pot wonder, a bubbling lamb and haricot bean casserole that is full of flavor, slow-roast pork with the perfect crackling and a side of buttery Colcannon mash and an irresistible coffee and praline cake that is perfect for any family celebration.
