GIY’s Grow Cook Eat is back on Irish TV for a second run, starts 13 March

Move over seafood, it's time to start growing your own.

The GIY (Grow It Yourself) anchored Grow Cook Eat is back on Irish TV screens this March.

With Irish Seafood Trails having wrapped, RTÉ are moving on with their food programming at pace as Michael Kelly and Karen O’Donohoe return to showcase producers, chefs and community food-growing projects around the country.

The show is a rather practical series aimed at helping people with little or no knowledge of growing their own food, but who like the idea of being able to grow something themselves.

Split over seven parts, it will run on Wednesday nights from 13 March at 8.30pm.

On the way in episode one…

In the first episode of the new series, Michael and Karen are focusing on a household staple – the onion. Easy to grow and very low maintenance, both red and white varieties are sown in the raised bed with Karen holding back some of the sets for container growing.

We’ll also get a look at the Mahon Farmers’ Market, pick up tricks on keeping hens and a recipe for Berber Eggs as a brunch dish.

Katie Sanderson (White Mausu – check it out, buy it and eat it all) is the weekly chef on the show.

Episode one airs Wednesday 13 March, 8.30pm on RTÉ One with catchup available on the RTÉ Player.
