The Dairy Council for Northern Ireland has launched its 2017 Young Cook of the Year competition.
This year’s competition takes its inspiration from the World Dairy Summit coming to Belfast.
With with over 1,200 delegates from 55 countries expected to attend, the challenge to key stage 3, 4 and Special Education students is to develop a meal for four of the visiting delegates showcasing Northern Ireland and our fantastic local produce. As well as following healthy eating guidelines both courses are to include Northern Ireland dairy products such as milk, cheese, yogurt and buttermilk.
The competition is open to schools across Northern Ireland and the winners from each Education Authority region go forward to cook their dishes at the Finals in April.
The closing date is 14th March 2017, and more information on the competition including how to enter can be found here
