John Torode’s Ireland, produced by Cornelia Street Productions, follows the British-Australian chef as he goes on a foodie voyage of discovery across the Emerald Isle. The 6×60’ series will premiere on Food Network and Discovery+ this summer.

In Tom Kerridge’s Sunday Lunch, the Michelin-starred chef will offer a step-by-step guide to preparing his favourite meal of the week. The 8×30’ series will debut on Food Network and Discovery+ this autumn, followed by an hour-long Christmas special in time for the festive season.

Elsewhere, Food Network has commissioned a third season of Gok Wan’s Easy Asian (8×30’), for debut next month. The series comes from Sidney Street Productions.

Michel Roux’s French Country Cooking is also returning to the channel for a second 8×60’ season this summer, produced by Outline Productions Limited.

Clare Laycock, senior VP of planning and insights, head of entertainment at Discovery UK, said: “The new slate of cooking commissions will create a unique opportunity for viewers to welcome some of their favourite UK chefs into their homes.”
