Tough competition

THE annual Moffat National Salon Culinaire competition is becoming tougher for judges to decide who will walk away with the main prizes later today.

The second day of competition proved difficult for some judges to decide which dish, recipe or chef would progress to the next level of the competition.

Fiji Chefs Association president, Sailesh Naidu said this year's range of culinary chefs competing at the event certainly came out to win.

"It has been very difficult for us. Some of the dishes that are being made here are very new, innovative and just very creative," he said.

"They are using new techniques and ingredients and becoming very confident with their recipes."

Mr Naidu said some international judges also viewed the competition as one of the best compared to previous years.

"They have noticed that some of the chefs are indeed becoming very bold in their choice of ingredients."

He said the winners of the main categories would be decided later today.

"We have more than 200 chefs competing for the main prizes."

Three lucky chefs will be given their honours at an awards ceremony of the annual competition in Nadi tonight.
