Kilkenny chef Edward Hayden had the crowd in the palm of his hand on Day 1 of the Ploughing as he whipped up a "student-friendly" pasta dish.

Hayden, who is known to many from his TV appearances on Ireland AM was staging the cooking demo in the UCD/Agri Aware 'Big Red Shed.'

Hundreds of students and would-be students descended on the shed to get Edward's tips to avoid four years of baked beans in college.

He cooked chicken & chorizo pasta as an example of a meal for college students and there was a good crowd there all waiting to be fed!
