This programme takes the viewer on a historical journey to celebrate our past through the wonders of food and the glories of cooking featuring three of Ireland's finest Chefs: Derry Clarke, Catherine Fulvio and Paul Flynn.
The chefs travel to Cappoquin House, the home of Sir Charles Keane, whose family were forced from their native Derry estate during the Elizabethan plantations and had their beautiful Waterford home burned during the Civil War.
The chefs travel to Ballywalter Park on the beautiful Ards Peninsula in County Down, the home of Lord and Lady Dunleath.
Catherine, Paul and Derry head to beautiful Westport House, the ancestral home of the Earls of Sligo, where Sheelyn Brown -- descendant of Grace O'Malley, the Pirate Queen -- will play host amid tales of sugar plantations and slavery.
Derry, Catherine and Paul visit Castle Leslie in County Monaghan, one of Ireland's most exclusive hotels and the home to Sir Jack Leslie and the force of nature that is Sammy Leslie, his niece who almost single-handedly saved the estate from ruin.
Catherine and Paul visit Tullynally Castle in County Westmeath, the largest house in private ownership in Ireland and the ancestral home of Thomas and Valerie Pakenham, Lord and Lady Longford.
At the majestic Birr Castle in County Offaly, home of Brendan Parsons, the 7th Earl of Rosse, and his wife Alison, the chefs create a meal using recipes from a hand-written 17th-century cookbook featuring a potato pie recipe from 1666.
