Together Academy was delighted to partner with Dunnes Store’s Simply Better range and the amazing Neven Maguire for an evening of fun and food on Friday, April 16th, 2021! Ireland’s biggest cook-along featured the culinary talent of Neven on screen for an unprecedented event for adults with Down syndrome and their families.
With 100+ families across Ireland and the UK in attendance, our first-ever virtual cook along was a night to remember, and we are so grateful for the support of Dunnes Stores and their simply better range. We had a brilliant evening thanks to an introduction from Brendan O’Connor and MC’d by our Founder Therese Coveney, who asked Neven loads of questions from the audience. We even went live from the homes of a few audience members around the country- including a special guest, Barry, Neven’s long-time friend based in the UK. Chicken curry and brownies were on the menu, and Neven’s four-legged friends even made an appearance!
Together Academy is all about achieving and believing in more- both in opportunities for adults with Down syndrome and the future of culinary inclusion.
