How to Cook Well with Rory O'Connell

In his American TV debut, Ireland’s most experienced cooking teacher transforms humble ingredients — from mackerel to beetroot — into imaginative and delicious dishes. In each episode, Rory demonstrates three recipes that incorporate influences from Asia, the Middle East, the Americas, and of course, his native Ireland. Rory makes his recipes simple to follow and accessible, with the aim of giving people confidence in the kitchen.

Rory has been teaching people to cook for more than 30 years. He founded the famous Ballymaloe Cookery School with his sister, Darina Allen. As well as teaching, Rory has worked as a chef in some of the world’s top restaurants, including Chez Nico, Chez Panisse and Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons. Rory’s first book, Master It, won the Andre Simon Food Book Award in 2013.
