TWO girls from County Fermanagh are setting off to London later this month to put their “recipe for success” to the test in the national finals of a major competition.

Tanya Doherty and Mary Melanophy, of Mullaghdun Youth Club, who are pictured with Peter McGinnity trying out the dish, are taking part in the “Sports Dish of the Year” national final at Westminster College on June 20.

Youth club leader Martina Kirkpatrick said it was the girls’s menu consisting of stir-fried fillet of beef served with pasta shells which won them a place at the final of the event.

She said the judges – who included a hotel chef and manager – said the dish which Tanya and Mary had practised making on a number of occasions was excellent, and tasted exactly as it should have done.
