Love Belfast : Cheese Creative Recipe Winners Announced

The Dairy Council for Northern Ireland has announced the winners of its ‘Cheese Creative’ recipe competition. The competition is part of the ‘Cheese Up Your Life’ programme which celebrates the quality, variety and versatility of European cheese.

Selected by the judges for their creativity, innovation and fantastic taste, the winning dishes were: Savoury Sunday Supper Cheesecake from local blogger ‘Down the Hatch’ made with Northern Ireland Cheddar; and Camembert and caramelised onion tart with gingerbread and fig by Merchant Hotel Chef Vitalijus Sgibnevas. These inspiring and original dishes showcased the entrants’ passion for cheese making it the ‘star of the show’ in their winning recipes.

As well as each receiving €1,000, Lynsey Hollywood from ‘Down the Hatch’ and Vitalijus will now travel to meet other winning bloggers and chefs from across Europe at a celebratory Cheese Symposium in Brussels in June.

Commenting Dr Mike Johnston, Chief Executive of the Dairy Council for Northern Ireland said, “We were delighted with the exceptionally high standard of entries to the competition and the bloggers and chefs enthusiasm for cooking with cheese really came across in their delicious dishes.”
