Cheese up your life!
We want you to show us your love for cheese by developing an innovative, inspiring and delicious recipe using cheese as a key ingredient
Our competition celebrates the European cheese of four countries: United Kingdom (Northern Ireland), Ireland, Denmark and France.
It’s free to enter and open to cheese–loving foodies and chefs.
The winner of each category will receive €1,000.
The winners will also attend a gala event in Brussels where their recipes will be showcased, along with those of competitors from France, Denmark and Ireland.
The Symposium is all about European Cheese Culture from the science of what makes our cheese delicious to future trends and the place of cheese in a modern lifestyle. There will be cheese tastings and food pairings, and the winning recipes will feature as part the celebrations.
Our judges for the Northern Ireland competition are cook and food writer Trish Deseine; Joy Alexander, Head of Food Technology Development at Loughry College and Dr Mike Johnston, Chief Executive of the Dairy Council NI.
