Two finalists were shortlisted, with the final winner being chosen by public vote.

Lorraine Surgin from Ballynure, Co. Antrim devised a mouth-watering ‘Mediterranean Metro Wrap’, filled with hummus, spinach leaves, sun blushed tomatoes, roasted peppers, scallions, olives and feta cheese in a soft tortilla wrap. After a public vote, she has been named the winner.

Lorraine takes home a cash prize of £500 along with Translink travel ticket vouchers. Her winning Mediterranean Metro Wrap will also be served in participating Centra and SuperValu delis September, 3 – 16.

Commenting on her win, Lorraine Surgin said: “I was on holiday when the call came through to say that I was a finalist, and I just couldn’t believe it. I’m even more delighted to find out that I have won.

“I’m such a foodie and it will be great to see my lunch served up in selected SuperValu and Centra delis across Northern Ireland. It’s a healthy and tasty option and I hope that other people are going to enjoy it as much as we did.”
