Epi Rogan, who is originally from Alaska and has been living in Ballincollig, Co Cork for the past 12 years, is the Dublin Cookery School scholar 2015. Rogan wins a place, worth €8,500, on the cookery school’s next 12-week intensive course, beginning in September.

Rogan was one of 13 amateur cooks who took part in a cook-off at the school this week. Her winning dish was quick braised beef cheeks, which impressed judges Lynda Booth, proprietor of the school in Blackrock, Co Dublin; John Wyer, chef/proprietor at Forest Avenue, and Stephen Flynn of The Happy Pear in Greystones.

“I’m delighted to have won the scholarship. My ambition is to become a chef and go on to work in restaurants,” Rogan said. During her three-month course at Dublin Cookery School she’ll get a chance to experience what it’s like to work in a professional kitchen when she does a stage (work experience) at Forest Avenue in Dublin 4.
