The local branch of Save The Children have announced a unique event to be held at The Crannagh Licensed Restaurant on Thursday 28th September and tickets are now on sale. Aptly entitled “Ready Steady Cook the host for the night will be the lovely Sarah Travers and will feature proprietor of the Crannagh and top chef Barry Dallat attempting to teach local personalities Denis McNeill and Brian Moore to cook – and neither of them cook! The audience will be invited to judge the finished “dishes” and every penny raised goes to the Save The Children charity.
DENIS McNEILL – Q RADIO
I admit to being useless in the kitchen although I do try the odd poached egg and if I make a mistake the next door neighbour’s dog gets it. And come to think of it he does seem to be putting on a lot of weight. I suppose my speciality would be Tomato and Basil Soup and sometimes I even put tomatoes in it.
BRIAN MOORE – NORTH COAST ENTERTAINER
My wife is a wonderful cook so I’m entirely spoilt and indeed, who would want burnt salad anyway. That said, I’m determined to give Denis a run for his money as I don’t rate his skills much after I watched the incompetent way he stirs his tea.
The local committee members who met with Denis and Brian this week couldn’t be more delighted and reckon it’s going to be one of the best events they ever organised. Joy Kearney, Yvonne Orr and Joan McCallum all agreed “After this we think our families will look on our culinary skills with much more respect”.
Tickets for the event which include a light supper courtesy of The Crannagh are priced at £10 and are available from committee members, The Crannagh and the Save The Children Shop in New Row in Coleraine. Further details will follow.
