CHEFS in the Western Division went head to head at the Moffat National Salon Culinaire which began yesterday in Nadi.

Held over three days at the Fiji National University, the cooking competition boasts 26 classes and specific events for student chefs, junior chefs, senior chefs and pastry chefs.

With judging conducted by international and local professionals, the event will also determine the coveted titles of Fiji Chef of the Year, Fiji Pastry Chef of the Year and Fiji Junior Chef of the Year.

Apart from industry professionals, 24 cookery and pastry chefs from the FNU's College of Business, Hospitality and Tourism Studies are also taking part in the competition.

Acting head of the department of food and beverage Davendra Reddy said the students participation provided a unique opportunity for resort food and beverage management to identify potential future employees.

"Events like these also strengthen relations between the university and the tourism and hotel industry. Students will be taking part in four categories — three static and one live," he said.

Mr Reddy said the results of previous competitions spoke volumes of the FNU's cooking and pastry program.
