Sinéad and Andrew Merron with Matt.
Friday, 30 July 2010 11:48
Things get heated for mum of three Sinéad Merron from Castlebar when she teams up with top Welsh chef Matt Tebbutt on Family Food Fight with Flora, an exciting new TV3 show airing every Monday at 3.05 p.m.
On August bank holiday Monday, August 2, viewers will see Matt team up with the Merron family to help them break their unhealthy food habits and teach mum of three Sinéad and her husband Andrew delicious, easy recipes that are low in saturated fat.
The Merron family will then go head-to-head against a rival team, led by popular French chef Jean-Christophe Novelli, cooking a main course and a dessert, which is judged by a tough panel of restaurant diners.
However, Matt has quite a challenge on his hands.
The Merrons are a big and busy family. Big house, busy social lives, big on sport, busy with work, and big characters.
The only thing they're not so big on is their cooking! Mum Sinéad relies on ready-made sauces while Andrew doesn't lift a finger in the kitchen.
The three Merron children all boast healthy appetites and a list of activities longer than their arms but mum Sinéad is concerned about their unhealthy diets. With a family history of high cholesterol and diabetes, Sinead is even more aware that their diets need a revamp for the better.
Can Sinead get out of her quick stir-in sauces rut? Can Andrew be taught how to help out in the kitchen?
Tune in to Family Food Fight with Flora on TV3 on Monday, August 2, at 3.05 p.m. to find out!
