Londis has confirmed that it has renewed its sponsorship of RTÉ's Tastes Like Home, which will return for a fourth series on Monday 4, November.
Hosted by Day-Time Emmy nominated chef Catherine Fulvio, the Tastes Like Home team travelled to Boston-USA, Newfoundland-Canada Portland Maine & New Hampshire-USA as well as Paris-France, Faro-Portugal & Osijek-Croatia, to capture six individual stories from the shows contestants, across the series.
As well as re-creating familiar, hearty recipes for loved ones living abroad, the show introduces a series of national dishes and traditional favourites from right across the globe, from the one-of-a-kind hand made Cannoli’s in Boston or going fishing with lobstermen for Maine lobsters to eating traditional Cataplanas and Caracóis (snails) in Portugal, or Partridgeberries and Cod Tongues in Newfoundland or in Osijek, Croatia the award winning food writer discovers the smokey flavours of a ‘fish-paprikash’ cooked over an open fire as well as their traditional 'Krempita' (cream pie).
In France Catherine learnt how to make traditional Croissants from Parisian baker.
Feast Of Flavours
“In Tastes like Home this year I experienced a veritable feast of flavours with local cuisine stretching from Central Europe to the tip of Canada, the series is packed with experiences of local culture and delectable dishes covering everything from snails to lobster, from croissants to apple cider donuts, but the highlight for sure is the families, their emotional stories and their heart-warming dishes.” Fulvio said
Apart from cookery, viewers will also receive a glimpse of the culture of many of the contestants’ foreign homes and the traditions of their friends and families.
"Much like Londis, Catherine values quality, local produce and bringing fresh contemporary ideas to the table.” Conor Hayes, Londis sales director, said.
