What started out as a transition year project for the Kilkenny Student Enterprise awards  looks like being a bestseller. Kat Food, a recipe book which includes  the favourite dishes from the biggest names in hurling and camogie was launched in Langtons tonight by Wexford senior hurling manager, Davy Fitzgerald. His beef stew is included in the book edited by Kilkenny CBS pupils, Conor McCarthy from the city and Collm Dunne from Paulstown.

The secret of Kat Food's success is its simplicity. Anyone could follow how to prepare DJ Carey's mince meat and homemade chips or Adrian Ronan's quiche, TJ Reid's chicken stir fry or even Charlie Carter's chicken vindaloo from reading the book.

Conor McCarthy explained that they combined his love of food and  Colm's love of hurling to produce the book which is formatted like a notebook. It would make a great Christmas present.
