The RTÉ One cooking show, which was extremely popular last year, will again see Irish food entrepreneurs competing to win a massive €100,000 prize. The top dog will also have a product designed by them sold in 140 Lidl supermarkets around the country.

Limerick native Padraig McCarthy took the top prize for his Irish Beef Short Ribs with Pancetta and Cider Sauce in the last season, and is still reaping the rewards as the tasty dish flies off the shelf.

“Winning The Taste of Success has given me the opportunity to pursue my passion, which is food,” Padraig said.

“Every time I walk into a Lidl store I now get to see my product, sitting pride of place on the shelf. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity for anyone serious about a career in food."

Presenter Dáithí Ó Sé is very excited to get involved, telling RTÉ LifeStyle: "Last year they didn’t have a presenter, this year they got me on board. So I have been eating a lot of lovely food all summer.”

We can't wait to see what they have in store!
