Date: 13 May 2013

Ailish had to prepare her dish, Gourmet Vegetarian Burger with Sweet Potato Fries under the scrutiny of the renowned and award winning chef Neven Maguire.

The finals were held in St Angela’s College, Sligo.

The competition aims to encourage secondary school students to display their culinary capabilities while also promoting the importance of healthy eating.

Secondary schools across the island received a flyer promoting the competition and teachers were encouraged to get their students involved. Amanda McCloat, Head of the Home Economics Department at St Angela’s College, Sligo and Board member of safefood explains: ‘The competition encourages students to choose their favourite takeaway food, e.g. pizza, stir-fry, curry and modify the recipe to make it healthier.’
