A young chef from Mayo has reached the final stages of the 2009 Baileys Euro-Toques Young Chef Competition. Twenty-three-year-old Patrick Powell is one of five finalists in total. He is from Killala and works at Knockranny House Hotel. To get to this stage Patrick had to submit his CV and recipe that took into account current economic climate and environmental trends for a seasonal main course dish for four people, incorporating local and artisan produce at a value-for-money cost. Entrants were then invited to attend a panel interview in Dublin conducted by chefs and founding Euro-toques members John Howard and Gerry Galvin, past winner Neven Maguire and Euro-toques secretary general Ruth Hegarty.
