AN innovative fundraising initiative which will see a team of Olympic chefs preparing and delivering a six-course gourmet feast, to raise funds for a very worthy cause, is being planned for Killarney.

The event will be held in the Gleneagle Hotel on Thursday, November 14 and an open invitation has been extended to all.

The Culinary Ability Awards is an international, non-profit organisation that prepares young people with disabilities to successfully enter and develop a career within the hospitality sector. In order to bring further awareness to this campaign, founder Chris Sanford has assembled a team to take part in the IKA Culinary Olympics in Stuttgart next year.

“Our team will compete against professional chefs from all over the world and this is the first time in the history of the competition that an inter-country team representing disability will take part. We are doing this to focus on the ability in disability and to showcase inclusion,” said Chris.

The team is made up of chefs from Ireland, Scotland, Italy, and Germany and all money raised from the event at the Gleneagle Hotel will go towards covering the costs of participating in the Culinary Olympics.

Tickets for the Culinary Ability Awards fundraising event cost just €45 and that will include six courses. For further information or to book tickets for this event visit or email [email protected]
