Balbriggan C.C Masterchef in association with Dundalk IT
This was an internally run cookery competition organised by the Home Economics department. Students were asked to create a three a course meal that they could make from a variety of Irish produced foods. Students submitted their menus which were sent to Dundalk IT. The head of Dept in Hospitality & Tourism at Dundalk IT selected what she believed were the 10 best menus. These students were then invited to Dundalk IT and were asked to choose two dishes from their menu that they would cook and present to the judges. Students had an hour and half to complete this task.
This was an exciting day for everyone involved. We were openly hearted welcomed to Dundalk IT and students got to experience the reality of cooking in a real life catering kitchen.
Each budding Chef cooked their hearts out and displayed a fantastic array of skills both in culinary and in presentation.
Unfortunately on the day there was only one winner- Nathan Rodgers. He beautiful presented a mixed vegetables soup, soda bread with hand crafted butter in the shape of flowers along with Irish Stew with baby potatoes as his main course option. He was closely followed by first year Aimee Smith. The judge later remarked that he was blown away by Aimee’s skills and abilities especially since this was her first year studying Home Economics.
