Grow Cook Eat, RTÉ One, Wed­nes­day, April 4, 7.30pm This week we learn all about ver­sa­tile beet­root — you can boil it, bake it, grate it into sal­ads, and add it to chut­neys, wine and even cakes. Pre­sen­ter Karen O’Dono­hoe, left, shows us just how sim­ple it is to grow this en­dur­ing veg­etable. Neven’s Ir­ish Food trail, RTÉ One Wed­nes­day, April 4, 8.30pm The top chef is in Craan­ford, Co Wex­ford, where he meets farm­ers Pa­trick and Thomas Red­mond, who pro­duce An­gus beef. One Born Ev­ery Minute, C4, Wed­nes­day, April 4, 9pm Af­ter seven years try­ing and two failed rounds of IVF, 33-year-old Jo and 47-year-old Pat thought they would never have chil­dren, un­til a visit to a clair­voy­ant of­fered them hope. They ar­rive at Birm­ing­ham Women’s Hos­pi­tal to be in­duced, but dis­cover that get­ting their baby out into the world is al­most as troublesome as get­ting preg­nant in the first place. What Are You Eat­ing? RTÉ One, Thurs­day, April 5, 8.30pm Ire­land is throw­ing away 1m tonnes of food an­nu­ally which means for the av­er­age house­hold, €700 is go­ing in the bin ev­ery year. We meet food waste ex­pert Dr Mary Magee and Mel Good who — with two small chil­dren who are finicky eaters — are hav­ing a hard time con­trol­ling their food waste. Armed with a ream of ad­vice from Mary who’s rum­maged through their bin the fam­ily ac­cepts the chal­lenge of re­duc­ing their food waste over a two-week pe­riod. But do peo­ple re­ally know how to di­vide their rub­bish into re­cy­clables and black bin waste?
