Irish and Ulster rugby star Tommy Bowe is calling on pubs and hotels across Ireland and Northern Ireland to showcase their carvery credentials in a bid to be crowned Ireland’s top pub and hotel carvery as part of the 2013 Great Carvery of the Year competition. Pictured alongside competition ambassador Tommy at the launch of this year’s nationwide competition are Business Development Chef and head of the judging panel Mark McCarthy from Unilever Food Solutions. The Great Carvery of the Year competition is a all-island search for Ireland and Northern Ireland’s best pub and hotel carveries. Now entering its fourth year, venues can register for the 2013 competition from today, April 2nd, until the 26th May, after which time a top three shortlist of Best Hotel Carvery and Best Pub Carvery from each region – Munster, Leinster, Connacht and Ulster – will be decided by public vote. The provincial winners and overall winning venues will be revealed at a Grand Final event in Dublin in September 2013. Picture Mark Marlow/pacemaker press
