The Cookery Section boasts 75 classes plus 5 special classes, with an overall prize fund of €10,000 with trophies and prizes on offer. The special feature is the Odlums All Ireland Home Baking Championship with an overall prize fund of €1’500 with the first prize €300 along with a prize and a trophy; also each qualifier will also receive a beautiful Odlums Hamper. Odlums also sponsor the Direct Entry Youth All Ireland Championship. A section for desserts is another addition and these together with the usual sections of Breads and Cakes, Sweet and Savoury, Traditional and Convenience, Preserve and of course our Youth sections, should provide interest for everyone. A New addition this year is the Sugar Veil Creations and the Yogurt Loaf class is always a very popular one.
