Apprentice chef success!

Apprentice chef Cathal and Niamh

Cathal Healy Ring and Niamh McSweeney represented McEgan College on the 15th March, at the prestigious Apprentice Chef competition, which is held in Tralee IT. The students had spent weeks practicing and perfecting their dishes, under the guidance of their mentor chef Mark Doe and teacher Hazel Bourke. The students used the opportunity to show case quality locally produced ingredients. Cathal’s dish featured Langoustine Prawns supplied by Clancy’s Fishmongers combined with a Quinoa and Cous Cous Salad. Niamh used Free range Chicken and the award winning Toon’s Bridge Mozzarella Cheese. Both students enjoyed the experience of getting to cook in a professional kitchen under the guidance of industry chefs. The judges said they were awed by the standard of skills and presentation by all students who represented schools from all over Munster. Congratulations to Niamh who has successfully qualified for the finals due to be held in IT Tralee in May.
