Kevin serves up a crock of Kilmore Quay mussels with bacon in white wine. Next it's chicken thighs with Asian stuffing and a sticky teriyaki glaze followed by Hasselback potatoes; cherry tomato and roasted garlic soup; and a Kinky Eton mess served with basil oil.
Dunbrody Country House Hotel, a beautiful 1830s Georgian manor located on Ireland's southeast coast, sets the backdrop for a new cooking series hosted by award-winning Irish chef and author Kevin Dundon. In his American television debut, Kevin shares the rich and unique histories of Irish country houses before putting his modern twist on their time-honored recipes. Kevin uses locally produced, seasonal ingredients and contemporary flavors to enhance the simplicity of these beloved Irish dishes. Each episode revolves around a single theme (Christmas, a summer barbecue) and features five recipes — a starter, main course, dessert and side dishes — showcasing Ireland's renowned beef, cheese, seafood and lamb. His easy-to-follow instructions help viewers replicate these everyday dinners, lunches and brunches in their own kitchens.
