Neven Maguire to Celebrate Cork Food Producers at Special Cookery Demo This Friday
Recently voted Ireland’s favourite chef, Neven Maguire, Brand Ambassador for Dunnes Stores’ Simply Better collection, will be demonstrating some of the delicious recipes from the recently launched ‘COOK with Neven Maguire‘ magazine.
The magazine, which is available free in Dunnes Stores nationwide and on the Dunnes Stores website, has been developed to nurture people’s passion for cooking at home with easy to follow recipes devised exclusively by Neven for Simply Better.
Full of colourful content, the magazine also features some of the Simply Better ‘Food Heroes’ – stories of the food producers involved in bringing the best quality food to homes across Ireland.
The Simply Better collection is one of the most successful food brands in Ireland, with over 250 food awards since it was established in 2013. At present there are 350 products in the collection with plans to introduce 100 new products this year.
Speaking about his visit to Cork this Friday, Neven said: “I am so looking forward to meeting as many fellow food lovers as possible on my short visit to Cork.
I’m delighted to be involved in a campaign that is encouraging consumers to support Irish producers and allow people to experience exceptional food at home, with, what I promise, are very easy to follow delicious recipes.
On the day I will be showing people how to create some easy to follow dishes, with many of the ingredients coming from Cork based food producers, who are part of the Simply Better collection.”
Speaking about Neven’s visit to Cork, Diarmuid Murphy, Simply Better Brand Manager said: “People across Ireland are having great fun recreating Neven’s recipes from the magazine and we are seeing this as they are sharing the results online with us.
It helps that Neven makes the recipes so easy to follow and he has also provided us with great short videos that even the most culinary challenged among us can follow online. These recipes can be found on our website, Twitter and Facebook feeds.”
Some of the Simply Better ‘Food Heroes’ from West Cork will be exhibiting on the day, including Mella McAuley from Mella’s Fudge, Richard Graham-Leigh from Regale Biscuit Company and Tom Kearney from Spice O’Life.
Also exhibiting is Richard Murphy from Shellfish Ireland, West Cork. Together with his son Ryan, Richard plays an essential role in sourcing the Simply Better Cooked Irish Lobster, Tiger Prawns and Crab. Speaking about Neven’s visit to Cork, Richard said:
“We are so looking forward to seeing Neven cook using our products in Cork. It’s going to be a great platform for our business and one of many opportunities that has come our way since we became part of the Simply Better collection.
Working with Dunnes Stores has enabled us to expand our business and allowed us to supply high quality seafood to homes throughout Ireland from the fishing village of Castletownbere in West Cork. We are proud to be associated with a brand that supports local producers.”
Never will be in Dunnes Stores, Bishopstown Court, Bandon Road, Cork on Friday 28th July from 3pm. For more information about Simply Better and ‘COOK with Neven’, visit www.dunnesstores.com or follow the hashtag #COOKwithNeven on social media.
