Food is not just about how you cook in the kitchen: it's about where the food comes from, the path for ingredients from farm to plate, the love and passion that goes into making the final dish and the sharing of food with the people important to you. Masterchef judge Gary Mehigan chats to people for whom food is everything - it's the love that goes into sourcing ingredients, creating the recipes and sharing that love of the process with others. Each dish has a much bigger story than just the cooking - each dish becomes A Plate To Call Home.
