Carving knives at the ready, the search is on for country's greatest roast!

Ireland’s Great Roast 2019 competition, previously known as Great Carvery of the Year, is officially underway. The competition searches to find the best roast served up by pubs and hotels across Ireland.

Entries for the all-new Ireland’s Great Roast are now open and close on 29 September. Pubs and hotels from all four provinces can submit their entry via the Unilever Food Solutions website and entry couldn’t be easier for those interested - all you have to do is tell the judges why your roast should be crowned top roast dinner 2019, including a photo of your roast and a link or photo of your menu.

A shortlist of venues, made up of pubs and hotels from Munster, Leinster, Connaught and Ulster will be announced at the end of September after which all of the shortlisted venues will welcome a mystery diner to decide which ones will take away the provincial titles as well as be crowned Ireland’s Great Roast Pub 2019 and Ireland’s Great Roast Hotel 2019.

Launching the revamped Ireland’s Great Roast 2019 competition, Unilever Food Solutions’ Customer Director, Jim Reeves said: “The Great Roast competition has grown from strength to strength since it began ten years ago. To facilitate a broader menu offering, we have optimised the entry requirements, opening it to any pub or hotel that regularly serves roast dinners.

“Ireland’s Great Roast 2019 continues to seek out the best of the best in Irish culinary tradition, rewarding their competencies for exceptional, great-tasting roast dinners. As always, we are on the lookout for great quality food and service, cleanliness and value for money, and we are extremely excited to take this competition to a new level,” he added.

As well as winning the title of Ireland’s Great Roast 2019, the overall pub and hotel winners will have a chance to win up to €3,000 worth of kitchen equipment, Chef Rewards points and branded chef jackets.

Rachael Kohler, Marketing Manager at the Castle Hotel, Macroom who won last year’s competition, said: “We were delighted and honoured to have won this title. It’s great to receive recognition for the hard work of our team. Delivering fresh, delicious food using local produce is our ethos and we were delighted to be rewarded for fulfilling that promise.”
