INSPIRED Friend of Culinary Arts

Posted: 19 May, 2016

Three brilliant young chefs from the School of Culinary Arts and Food Technology in the Dublin Institute of Technology won the top awards in a competition to create mouth-watering recipes for chicken dinners that can be ready in 21 minutes.

The competition was sponsored by Manor Farm, Ireland’s leading producer of chicken. Working with DIT’s School of Culinary Arts & Food Technology as part of the INSPIRED (Innovative Supports of Professional  Industry, Research, Education and Developments) Friends of Culinary Arts programme , Manor Farm challenged Ireland’s next top chefs and gastronomists - students of the school - to see what quick, nutritious and tasty dinners they could come up with. The results were incredible.     

The competition, which took place in DIT on Cathal Brugha Street, saw the finalists cook up some amazing chicken dishes and chicken broths that they had themselves designed, prepared and cooked to feed Ireland’s busy families. 

The winners were Medhbh McCarthy from Dunboyne, Co. Meath, Ryan Malone from Ballymun and Emma Cooray from Blanchardstown in Dublin each receiving a cheque for €1,000.
