Irish chef Neven Maguire, already known on public television with his Home Chef series, travels around Ireland meeting interesting food producers and chefs and craftspeople such as potters, glass blowers and knife-makers - all crafts related to food and drink. His base for the series is a beautiful barge on the River Shannon and each program ends with Neven cooking on board.
