I posted a few days ago about RTE looking for people to enter a new show looking for cook of the year. I got a phone call from one of the show's organisers this morning talking through some of the details, but she also said they are still looking for people from the north to get involved! So if you live in Ulster please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and get involved.
You really don't have to be a master chef.... I mean look at me and I'm entering! You just have to enjoy cooking! It's just a bit of craic! So there's no reason not to!
See here for more details
Also, if you have some ideas and suggestions of a dish to bring to the audition, I would love to hear them. I have a few already but would love to hear some ideas from other people who love food too!
