The second episode of Richard Corrigan’s show, Corrigan Knows Food, will be on RTÉ One this evening at 7pm. While I think Corrigan can sometimes go a bit overboard (his recent Late Late Show appearance was embarrassing, to say the least) when he’s on form, he’s an enthusiastic presenter and inspiring cook. Why, however, someone felt the need to shoehorn the man into a badly-fitting magazine format, is a mystery. Anne Kennedy has a good review of the first programme in the series here on Greatfood.ie and you can watch the show online here.
Corrigan also makes an appearance on last night’s Questions and Answers, responding to the question “Does Richard Corrigan think he is promoting Irish food and tourism when he criticises Irish food products?”. John O’Donoghue, Minister for Arts, Sport & Tourism, brings up the old chestnut of Ireland: The Food Ireland (recently debated at the Euro-toques forum in Brooklodge) and there are also contributions from Kevin Sheridan of Sheridans Cheesemongers as well as a whole heap of good sense talked by a gentleman – whose name I didn’t catch – from the Associated Craft Butcher’s of Ireland.
