Congratulations to Kinsale Community School’s 5th year students, Jessica Sheehan and Michaela O’Driscoll, and their Home Economics teacher Ms Orla Prendergast, who carried off two prizes in the Cookery Competition at A Taste of West Cork Food Festival.
The competition, sponsored by Glenilen Farm, Drimoleague, aims to give Home Economic students the opportunity to showcase their culinary skills using West Cork produce within a limited budget. It took place at Mercy Heights Secondary School in Skibbereen on Wednesday 9th September, and the girls faced stiff competition from ten competing teams. The students won a Nutri-Bullet smoothie-maker each, and a meal at the Farmgate Café in the English Market with their teacher.
The Kinsale Good Food Circle is very happy to see the girls keeping the spirit of high quality cooking alive at A Taste of West Cork’s Cookery Competition. Kinsale’s reputation for great food seems to be in safe hands for the future! Well done to the girls and everyone involved.
The students cooked a mouth-watering two-course meal: Skeaghanore pan-fried duck with a raisin jus, served with roasted fondant potatoes, Clonakilty black pudding, locally grown cavolo nero and pickled beetroot, followed by a buttermilk vanilla panacotta with wild blackberries and oatmeal tuile for dessert.
