Ulster Rugby, in conjunction with Slim’s Healthy Kitchen, has launched a new recipe book, which is now on sale with all proceeds going to its Charity Partner, Include Youth.
The recipe books cost just £5 and are available from the Ulster Rugby Ticket Office, all eight Slim’s Kitchen outlets and in the Kukri Sports stores at Kingspan Stadium and Victoria Square.
The books feature cooking guidelines for some of the Ulster players’ favourite dishes, such as Wiehahn Herbst’s ‘Slow Cooked Thai Beef’, Tommy Bowe’s ‘Turkey Chilli’ and Charles Piutau’s ‘Perfect Porridge’. It also includes ‘The Kissy Veggie Burger’, which is the preferred dish of Director of Rugby, Les Kiss.
The recipe book has six chapters; Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Shakes & Smoothies, Snacks and Treats, which give supporters the chance to eat like their heroes.
Ulster Rugby’s partnership with Include Youth starting in the summer and the recipe book is one of a number of joint initiatives taking place over the course of the season. As well as helping to raise vital funds for the charity, the partnership will promote its excellent work in the community and offer development opportunities to young people in need.
Ulster Rugby will host its annual charity fixture this Friday night when Italian team Zebre visits Kingspan Stadium.
Paddy Mooney, Director at Include Youth, commented: “We are delighted that Ulster Rugby has chosen to donate the proceeds of this recipe book to Include Youth. Many of the young people we work with have experienced social exclusion, poverty, homelessness or have other complex needs and therefore need additional support to overcome their barriers and positively move into education or work.
“Ulster Rugby is helping us promote positive mental health and wellbeing among young people who are unemployed and ultimately helping us make sure each young person rediscovers what they are good at.”
Kate Magill, Marketing Manager at Slim's Healthy Kitchen, added: “We are really excited to be joining forces with Ulster Rugby to support their charity partner Include Youth. We've been working closely with the team and coaching staff on their day-to-day nutrition for the past two years and it's fantastic to now be able help create recipes that are simple, healthy and nutritious for Ulster Rugby fans.
“From the most advanced cook to a novice, there's a recipe for everyone to get into the kitchen and have a go!”
