Date Posted: February 29, 2016

Ulster Scots Broadcast Fund series Paul and Nick’s Big American Food Trip returns for a second series, Friday 4th March at 8pm on UTV.

Once again top chefs and great friends Paul Rankin and Nick Nairn journey across the sea to the U.S. to follow in the trail of the first Ulster-Scots who travelled and settled in the New World. In this series the chefs visit Virginia, North and South Carolina, East Tennessee and Washington D.C. They meet fantastic food producers, learn more about the history of the Ulster-Scots settlers and cook a special 3-course bespoke meal for some Ulster-Scots descendants.

In the first episode Paul and Nick are in Washington D.C. – the capital city and political stronghold of the United States. This week they’re cooking for former White House Press Secretary and Ulster-Scot – Mike McCurry and his friends and family.

The chefs also find out about the Ulster-Scots heritage of Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the United States. They pick up local seafood at Maine Avenue Fish Market, and discover some fabulous seasonal veg at the FreshFarm Market at Dupont Circle all to prepare a 3-course presidential meal at the UK’s Deputy Ambassador’s Residence.

Paul and Nick’s Big American Food Trip is produced by Waddell Media with funding from the Northern Ireland Screen Ulster Scots Broadcast Fund.
