O’ Eggciting News for Tara!

O’ Eggciting News for Tara!

Tara Reidy, a first year student in Hazelwood College, was recently announced as one of twenty runner up winners in the O’ Egg Recipe Challenge. This national competition was organised by the Farrelly family, who are Ireland’s leading free range artisan egg producers based in County Cavan. Recipe entries had to incorporate the O’ Egg products of liquid whole eggs or liquid whites, which are available in the chilled fridge cabinets in SuperValu and Centra throughout the country.

This O’ Egg product provides the same flavour and nutritional content of shell eggs while avoiding wastage from cracked eggs in the box, the mess and hassle of picking out egg shells from the bowl. It is time, effort and hassle free for the novice and adventurous cook. This newly launched product is pasteurised thus ensuring a long shelf life of 21 days ( 7 days once opened) and can be frozen successfully.

Tara’ s recipe entry of Chocolate Yogurt Cake was emailed in last December and a lengthy process of adjudication followed with the judges cooking and tasting each recipe entered to ensure that the recipes chosen were successful and as well as meeting the criteria of appearance, flavour and texture.

Tara was amazed and delighted when she received the good news of her winning entry and was thrilled to receive her prize of a signed copy of Rachel Allen’s cookery book.
