Chef Factor Returns: Darina and Rachel Allen are delighted by the return of Cully & Sully’s Chef Factor!

Darina and Rachel Allen are delighted by the return of Award Winning Irish food producers Cully & Sully’s online contest Chef Factor 2011! The success of last years Chef Factor saw well over 100,000 people registering their votes on cheffactor.ie and its return has been widely tipped as one of the hottest events in food to watch out for this year. Members of the public are invited to enter Chef Factor on Cheffactor.ie to be in with a chance of winning a place on January’s coveted 12 week Ballymaloe cookery course including accommodation, together worth over €12,000 euro. The top prize can be redeemed in either 2012 or 2013 and will include two weeks with Colum O’ Sullivan (Sully) and Cullen Allen (Cully) to learn the ways of the food business. The success of last years Chef Factor saw well over 100,000 people registering their votes on cheffactor.ie and its return has been widely tipped as one of the hottest events in food to watch out for this year.

Colum O’ Sullivan (Sully) remarks, “We believe that it’s success is down to the fact that people understand that Chef Factor is for anybody who wants to learn how to cook and develop their own career in food. You don’t need to be a good cook to enter as the prize is professional training in one of the world’s leading cookery schools. We are simply looking for someone who really wants to win this once in a lifetime opportunity. You can enter anything you like-from your favorite sandwich to a risotto, from steak to a cake! It’s also important to remember that Chef Factor is not all about online votes, as while four finalists will be determined by public vote, two wildcards will be handpicked by Cully and I to go through irrespective of votes and all finalists will be on an equal footing at the final. Everybody stands a great chance of winning.” Entrants are accepted from September 5th, 2011 and the winner is expected to be chosen in Ballymaloe on Saturday the 26th of November.

To enter Chef Factor, participants must upload a simple photo of their dish with the words “Cully & Sully” somewhere in the image and submit this to cheffactor.ie along with a brief explanation of the dish and the reason why they deserve to win. Entering is open from September 5th.

Rachel Allen says, “The response to Chef Factor last year showed that so many great people have a real desire to learn how to cook and to begin their own culinary careers. As my own career began in Ballymaloe Cookery School, I know that this is truly a remarkable opportunity and I’m delighted to lend my support to Cully & Sully.”

Last year’s Chef Factor winner, Christine Crowley from Waterford remarks, “The opportunity to enter Chef Factor came along at a very uncertain time in my life and now I’m operating my own tearooms in Co. Wexford. It’s going fantastic and it would never have happened without Cully & Sully’s Chef Factor.” For more details, visit cheffactor.ie.
