2 Indian chefs win Gold Medal

Two Indian chefs won the gold medal at an International Chef Competition held in Singapore recently for cooking on a charcoal mud stove with two mud pots

N. Sheetharaman Prasaad and his team-mate U. Ganesh won in preparing a three-course meal with ingredients bought from the local market with 150 Singapore dollars and cooking with at least three out of five given ingredients with charcoal stove and mud pots. "We were stumped when asked to cook in the charcoal mud stove. All these years we were cooking on gas and electric stoves and ovens. But it ended well. The dishes should be of a certain weight. The judges also looked at the wastage while giving the marks," said an excited Prasaad, Corporate Executive Chef, GRT Hotels & Resorts.

The competition, Tradition and Innovations, was organised under the auspices of Singapore Tourism Board, Indian Restaurant Association of Singapore and Indian Chef's Culinary Association as part of a 10-day food festival held at Little India, Singapore.

The jury comprised experts of World Association of Chefs Societies like Chef Rick Stephen (Asia and Pacific Continental Director of WACS), Chef Edmund Toh (Assistant Vice President, Resorts World Sentosa Hotels and Casino) and Chef Mahendran (Chef d'Cuisine, Indian Kitchen SATS, Singapore).

Six teams from five Asian countries - India, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia - participated in the contest.
