Cheese up your life!
How to enter
Entry for the competition is now closed
To take part in the competition, we’d like you to come up with a delicious and innovative recipe with cheese as a key ingredient.
The cheese must be made from cows’ milk and come from at least one of the countries taking part in the Cheese up your Life programme – United Kingdom (Northern Ireland), Ireland, Denmark and France. You can, of course, mention the type(s) of cheese you use but brand names are not permitted.
On the entry form, we’d like you to include the name of your dish along with the list of ingredients used and the method. Cheese should be a key part of your dish so we’d also like you to tell us cheese is important and why this recipe could not work without cheese (max 150 words).
You should also attach a photograph of your dish.
The recipe will be judged on:
- presentation of the dish
- originality and creativity
- the taste of the recipe
- best combination of ingredients
- explanation and description of recipe
- use of local products or techniques
- general overall impression.
There are two categories – one for chefs and one for foodies and food bloggers
Our definition of a ‘chef’ is someone who earns their living principally from cooking, and this also includes those training at catering colleges or in apprenticeships
For us, a ‘food blogger’ is someone with a presence on social media with a blog, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or a Twitter account, including home cooks
To take part in the competition, you must also be available to attend the award ceremony in Belfast on 23rd May 2017 and to be in Brussels on 7th and 8th June 2017. The winners may be asked to say a few words about their recipe at the event in Brussels, and to take part in a short video along with social media, communications and marketing activity around the competition.
Please read the Terms and Conditions carefully before entering.
