TOP UAE CHEFS START THE FIGHT FOR THE TITLE
The first day of the highly anticipated Anchor MasterChef Challenge
Dubai, 9 February, 2011: The first four teams spent a tense day in the kitchen earlier this week, producing their best signature dishes in the hope they will be shortlisted for the final of the second Anchor MasterChef Challenge.
Teams of two from The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa, Shangri-La Hotel, Dubai and The Address Downtown Dubai now have an anxious wait while seven other teams make culinary magic over the course of the week.
Four teams will make it through to the final where they will be faced with a ‘mystery basket’ of ingredients. The winning team will be announced at an exclusive event on 15 February. The competition is being held once again at Fonterra’s state-of-the-art innovation kitchen, the Culinarium.
The Anchor MasterChef Challenge is just one of a number of culinary events being hosted by Fonterra between January and July 2011. The New Zealand-based company is committed to providing young chefs with the opportunity to develop their skills through demanding competitions and challenging workshops.
