Banana importers, Fyffes, has issued an invitation to mums, dads and children throughout Roscommon and beyond to join in a search to find Ireland’s “Best Banana Dessert” creation.
Fronting the search to find this year’s winning creations is Ireland’s well-known television cook, Donal Skehan, whose programmes are a favourite amongst viewers and wannabe cooks.
The popular presenter hopes to repeat the success of last year, when his task was to judge Ireland’s most creative banana bread bakers — a quest that gave widespread recognition to the talents of Ireland’s ‘Best Junior Baker 10 years and over’ category winner, Roscommon Town native Isabelle Sexton.
Reward will go to the overall winner and best junior baker with recognition for originality in a number of other areas.
Entries are open from April 14th to 19th, with the winners due to be announced on National Banana Day itself, April 21st — an initiative devised to support the national drive to encourage healthy eating, especially amongst young and growing children.
