"The Afternoon Show on RTE One is looking for a Cook of the Year. This is a nationwide (Ireland: North, South, East and West) search and we are looking for amateur cooks over the age of 18. The winner will take away prizes and cook, live on the show in the autumn. To apply, all you need to do is tell us why you should be the Cook of the Year and e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org The closing date for applications is Friday 21st March and auditions will be held in the four Provinces at the beginning of April."
I've emailed out of interest and intrigue, and it'll be great to be challenged a little more in my cooking. Just thought I would share in case anyone would be interested.
