Lords and Ladles on Netflix


Netflix and grill? Fry? Saute, bake, boil, poach, roast or toast? How about all of the above! Lords and Ladles Season 1 is available on popular streaming service Netflix in the USA.

Join Derry Clarke, Paul Flynn and I as we recreate succulent foods in stunning locations. We visit some of Irelands iconic country manors, like the jaw dropping Castle Leslie in Co.Monaghan. The show will excite with a host of exquisite banquets from times gone by and the simply sensational scenery on offer from the opulent country manors in which they are re-created!

If you want to catch up with the adventure so far Season 1, 2 and 3 are available on the RTE player! The final Episode of Season 3 aired on RTE One last night. 

We’ve had such fun making this programme and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Call for Entries ; Tastes like Home


TLHS03 Apply Now Week 1r2


Applications open from Monday 19th March to 29th April 2018

I am delighted to announce I am back!   Thanks to Londis there will be a third series of Tastes Like Home which will be filmed over the coming months and return to your screens later in the year.  So if you want to be the next TV foodie star and have a loved one living abroad then we want to hear from you.

Food is part of our culture and our heritage and this is evident from the TV series, Tastes Like Home.  When we move abroad it is one of the first things we miss about home and it has been a pleasure for me to bring the distinctive flavours or Ireland to all four corners of the globe and I look forward to doing it again in series three!

So far the Show has visited Irish families far and near from South Korea to London and Canada to South Africa with dishes including a mouthwatering seafood platter of smoked scallops and lobster, to a traditional fish pie with a twist and a very Irish nettle and leek soup.  We all have a dish that awakens the very best of memories, and we want you to share yours with the nation!   I will visit your loved one wherever they live, be it Hong Kong, Iceland, Poland, Wellington or Brisbane, and help them recreate the dish that "Tastes Like Home".

Successful applicants will host me in their home and teach me how to whip up their gastronomical delight. i'll then visit their loved one abroad, taking viewers on a whistle-stop tour of their home away from home, before helping to re-create the dish that for them, tastes like home.

Applications are open until the 29th April and you should be available for filming in May/June 2018, any level of cooking skills is required to feature on the show. But a passion for home-made cooking is a must!


Applications are open until midnight on Sunday 29th April 2018. To apply, simply apply directly online at www.tasteslikehome.ie  or post your completed application forms to  "Tastes Like Home TV Show, C/O Another Avenue, 14 Clyde Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4” or return them to your local Londis with three family favourite recipes for consideration.  RTÉ One, with the help of Londis, will recruit six successful participants from across the country.  Any level of cooking skills is required to feature on the show but a passion for home-made cooking is a must! 


"Tastes like Home was a very wholesome experience from start to finish creating a wonderful family archive for my sister,Oonagh, and I".

Ethel Power, Carrick on Suir


"Tastes Like Home was a wonderful opportunity to share our lives in a more interactive way with friends and family. For so many years we have only been able to relate our experiences of living and working thousands of miles apart in the simplest terms, feeling that few people could really understand us. From being a part of the programme we were both so happy to finally be able to show exactly what our lives are like".

Peter (Korea) & Grainne (Kildare)
