Often referred to as ‘The Gourmet Capital of Ireland’ it’s no surprise that award-winning celebrity chef Neven Maguire made a trip down to Kinsale for his new TV show ‘Neven’s Irish Seafood Trails’. As a great supporter of Irish food and drink Kate and Denis from Kinsale Mead Co were more than happy to show him around the gorgeous coastal town and of course invite him into their meadery.
Neven sampled the honeys used and they told him all about the fascinating history of the world’s oldest alcohol. Their latest batch of Hazy Summer Mead was in the midst of fermenting, as they explained how they make their fantastic mead.
They finished up the day by the beautiful harbour with Kate and Neven having a chat and sipping on some mead, including their Limited-Edition Barrel Aged Collection with a locally sourced seafood platter from Chef Meeran, Rare 1784 in The Blue Haven Hotel.
The show will be aired on Wednesday February 2nd at 8:30pm on RTE One. Tune in to find out what Neven said of his first taste of mead and what seafood delights he cooks up.
