Banana importers Fyffes has issued an invitation to mums, dads and children throughout Cork and beyond to join in a search to find Ireland’s ‘Best Banana Dessert’ creation.
Fronting the search to find this year’s winning creations is Ireland’s well-known television cook, Donal Skehan whose programmes are a favourite amongst viewers and wannabe cooks. The popular presenter hopes to repeat the success of last year, when his task was to judge Ireland’s most creative banana bread bakers – a quest that gave widespread recognition to the talents of Ireland’s overall winner, Cobh native Gillian Carney and another Cork winner, Heather O’Sullivan from Bantry who topped the ‘Best Gluten-Free’ category.
Reward will go to the overall winner and best junior baker with recognition for originality in a number of other areas. Entries are open from 14th – 19th April, with winners announced on National Banana Day itself, 21st April, an initiative devised to support the national drive to encourage healthy eating, especially amongst young and growing children.
