Cook at Home

Welcome to the Young Chef of the Year award, which your child/children’s school may be delivering to 5th and/or 6th class pupils this year.

The award covers ‘Food and Nutrition’ in the Social Personal and Health Education (SPHE) Curriculum and develops pupils’ chef skills, encourages food awareness and healthy eating.

The award focuses on pupils designing a ‘Meal for their Hero’. The meal includes a soup, main course, dessert and drink within a €10 budget, which they make during week 6.

To support pupils completing the challenge at home you’ll find below a couple of recipe videos and recipe cards, which will also be discussed at school.

Have fun supporting your child/children in the kitchen and ‘Let’s get Cooking!’

If you’d like further inspiration to get cooking at home you can purchase our book ‘Heat-Free and Healthy’, which contains 40 exciting simple and nutritious heat free recipes including breakfasts, salads, sandwiches, wraps, dips, snacks, desserts and drinks.
