Commenting on the culinary team’s efforts, the Centre’s Executive Chef, Hisham bin Jaafar, shared, “We are proud of our junior chefs and these tremendous wins they brought home! Our team recorded its highest ever number of medals won at the competition, which we have now competed in five times, with 10 gold, 11 silver and 6 bronze medals.”
“Unlike other years when we entered with a full team, this year we gave the opportunity to our junior chefs as it exposes them to higher standards of food safety, hygiene, time management and food presentation skills. The record-breaking victory clearly showcased our junior team’s skill and level of commitment,” a delighted Chef Hisham continued.
Reflecting the Centre’s continuous commitment in developing and nurturing young talent with world-class culinary skills, the 26 junior chefs proved their mettle in skills, creativity, quality, delivery and presentation as the team won gold in ‘Ethnic Malay Cuisine’, ‘5-course Western Set Menu’, ‘Plated Appetiser’, ‘Buffet Platter’ and ‘Selection of Tapas’ categories, among others.
