BUDDING young chefs in the Dundalk area are being invited to take part in a cookery competition, which is trying to encourage secondary school students to make their favourite takeaway dishes healthier.

Safefood and St Angela’s College have launched the first ever ‘Take Away My Way’ all-island cookery competition, which aims to encourage students to display their culinary skills while also promoting the importance of healthy eating.

Students all over the island of Ireland are encouraged to take their favourite takeaway meal, give the dish a healthy makeover, cook it and take a photo of their modified dish to win prizes including games consoles, gift vouchers and goody bags. The competition is open to all secondary school students on the island of Ireland and to YouthReach students. The entries will be judged by a panel of experts and finalists will be invited to compete and cook at the all-island final in St Angela’s College, Sligo on May 5, 2011.
