CFF Culinary Masters – HOTEC Live Stadium Kitchen

The Culinary Federation of Fiji, in conjunction with the Fiji Hotels and Tourism Association, is proud to announce a new culinary event at this year’s HOTEC trade show on November 7th & 8th, 2019 at Sheraton Fiji.

Demonstrate that a dish is not just how it tastes – you should be able to see, hear, smell and touch food as well to make it a truly gastronomic experience.

Prize by Culinary Federation of Fiji:

  • 2019 Culinary Master of the Year Trophy
  • $2,000 Cash & other prizes

Competition Rules:

  • The mystery box ingredients must be the hero of the dish, which can be an appetizer or main course
  • Competitors must bring their own knives and any specialized tools to accentuate their dishes – but no food ingredients.
  • There will be 6 x 1hr rounds each day beginning at 8 am. On the final day, the two top-scoring chefs will be invited back to battle it out in a grand finale with the hardest mystery box ingredients.
  • Two chefs will be selected to compete in each round, and have one hour to present a completed dish.
  • In the following round, another two chefs will compete but with different mystery ingredients.

Entry Criteria:

  • Experienced chefs who have reached a level of skill to be considered a master in their kitchen
  • Deep understanding of Fijian gastronomy and the different uses of our most exotic produce
  • Executive chefs or sous chefs, and chefs who have successfully competed and won medals at the annual Salon Culinaire.
  • Only 12 chefs will be selected based on experience and accolades.
