This morning.

Animo TV, the makers of Ireland’s Fittest Family and The Great House Revival, are cooking up a brand-new competition series for RTÉ Two which ‘celebrates our love of the Takeaway’.

Finally, sez you.

Ann Power writes:

We are looking up and down the country for amazing independent takeaways to showcase their cookery skills and compete to be crowned winners at the end of the series.

This is a battle of Ireland’s much loved takeaways. Whether you own a Chipper, Chinese or a Burger Joint, we want to hear from you!

To apply, please email takeaway@animotv.ie with your name, number and the name of your takeaway. A member of our team will be in touch.

You must own an independent takeaway or food van. Unfortunately we cannot accept applications from sit-in restaurants.
