We’re still on a high after the launch of our brand new cookbook Delicious which took place in Dublin. The event was held in Cooks Academy Cookery School where we were joined by celebrity chef Clodagh McKenna who entertained and inspired our special guests including some of Ireland’s top journalists and influencers with her wit, charm and of course, her cooking prowess.
The evening kicked off to a flying start when Unislim MD Fiona Gratzer introduced two of our fabulous Unislim members, Keva Jenkins, and Julie Fitzpatrick, who have lost a combined weight of over 23 stone after joining their local Unislim classes. The ladies shared their inspiring weight-loss stories and how eating good nutritious meals made from feel-good ingredients has helped them transform their lives.
We were then treated to a live cooking demo from Clodagh who had tummies rumbling as she cooked up two mouthwatering dishes from Delicious, demonstrating just how easy it is to make simple, tasty food with beautiful fresh ingredients.
Then it was on to the main event as our guests were invited to team up in pairs and take part in our ‘Beat the Chef’ style competition where they had to prep and cook a recipe from Delicious against the clock, as demonstrated by Clodagh. Our contestants were breaking a sweat as they chopped, diced and cooked their meals in the hope of impressing the judges. This was the ultimate challenge and it separated the cooking kings and queens from the culinary novices.
There could only be one winning team and after a fun evening of learning new tips and improving cooking techniques, food lovers Niamh O’Sullivan and Ciara O’Doherty were crowned the winners of our Delicious Cook-Off!
