IRISH RUGBY INTERNATIONAL JAMIE HEASLIP & CELEBRITY CHEF RACHEL ALLEN WILL BE COOKING UP A STORM AT THE LAND ROVER COOKING DEMONSTRATIONS AT THIS YEAR’S PLOUGHING CHAMPIONSHIPS

 

Land Rover returns to the National Ploughing Championships this Tuesday 20th – Thursday 22nd of September in Screggan, Tullamore. They will be hosting a series of cooking demonstrations with celebrity chef Rachel Allen over the three days of the festival where attendees and visitors can meet and greet Rachel and pick up some delicious cooking tips and tasters from Ireland’s leading celebrity chef and cookbook author.

 

On Tuesday 20th, Rachel will be joined by special guest, Jamie Heaslip. The Irish Rugby International will cook up a storm with Rachel. As one of Ireland’s foremost rugby stars, sports nutrition and diet are an important element of Jamie’s training programme. Jamie and Rachel will demonstrate the dishes that fuel Jamie’s match performances for what promises to be an entertaining demo!

 

Jamie Heaslip said, “This cooking demo should be fun, I hope Rachel is up to the challenge of cooking with me as I am no kitchen hero! I am also looking forward to experiencing The Ploughing Championships for the first time. It is a uniquely Irish festival and I’m delighted to be part of it with Land Rover.”

 

Rachel Allen spoke of her involvement and said “I really enjoy The Ploughing Championships and Land Rover’s cooking demonstrations are great fun. I can’t wait to see how well Jamie does in the kitchen! I will bring a little bit of Munster magic to the cooking and let’s see how well he handles it!”
