Get a taste of Ireland

Now here’s a challenge. What would you make if presented with a box full of traditional Irish ingredients? We’ll find out on 24 May when the region’s bravest chefs will compete in The Taste of Ireland Green Box competition at Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel. Their challenge is to create a top dish out of a selection of traditionally Irish ingredients they’re given on the day. A panel of expert judges will then select the top 12 submissions with the shortlisted culinary teams being invited to showcase their menus at a gala dinner at the Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel. Based on the performances of the 12 culinary teams, a winner will be announced at the dinner, with the champions being awarded an all-expenses-paid trip to Ireland, to meet with the sponsoring producers of the key ingredients used in their winning dishes. Sounds like a whole lot of fun, to watch anyway. We’d be far too scared to try it ourselves.
