Rory O’Connell is back for the third series of How To Cook Well with Rory O’Connell. As always, Ireland’s most experienced cookery teacher cooks imaginative and stylish dishes with wit and erudition, but always with the aim of making the recipes simple to follow and accessible.

Rory’s particular skill is in taking quite humble ingredients, such as mackerel, beetroot or gooseberries and creating a dish which transforms them into something surprising and delicious.

Ingredients such as Middle Eastern spices zaatar and sumac, once only available in specialist grocers, can now be found in most supermarkets and this is due in part to Rory using previously unfamiliar ingredients in his programmes. Influences from Asia, the middle East and the Americas can be found in this selection of recipes, as of course are the traditions, and superb ingredients, to be found in Ireland.
