The Macroom Food Festival Schools Cook-Off competition invites students, in teams of two, to create an innovative recipe, for a dish of their choice, using local produce. Each team are required to submit a recipe, which they have tried and tested, that they feel best exhibits their chosen local produce and is nutritional suitable for early life nutrition. The competition is open to all senior students in post-primary schools and Youthreach Centres in County Cork and County Kerry.

The chosen finalists will be expected to prepare and cook their recipe on gas, in an open-air cook off during Macroom Food Festival 2018.

The final will be held on Sunday 23 rd September 2018 in Macroom Town Square, Macroom, Co. Cork.

With two Tablets up for grabs for the winners, what are you waiting for? Let’s get started!
