Eight executive and senior chefs from the country will be battling it out in the Culinary Masters Fiji 2019 Tournament Championship from today at Sheraton Denarau to be recognised as one of the best chefs in the country.
Culinary Federation Fiji President, Chef Lance Seeto says this competition is a way to bring in senior, executive, and sous chefs and give them a fun competition and at the same time give them an opportunity to show their younger staff how they think and how they approach food.
Seeto says there is a big gap in the knowledge that is holding the industry back from producing exceptional food.
He says this is because many local chefs do not get to leave the country to experience the different types of food from other countries.
He adds that this need is being filled by expatriate chefs so that they could teach local chefs from their experiences.
Eight chefs will be given 8 different ingredients and their aim will be to show these ingredients in the best light.
The winning chef will win $2,000 tomorrow.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
