Young chefs display culinary skills

Held as a precursor to the International Trade Fair, the contest asked participants to prepare the cuisine with millets as 50% ingredients.

Over 60 students from various South Indian hotel management institutes vied to prepare the best three-course meal in the Smart Food Culinary Challenge for young chefs on Wednesday.

Held as a precursor to the International Trade Fair, the contest asked participants to prepare the cuisine with millets as 50% ingredients.

The state government organised the contest in partnership with MS Ramaiah University of Applied Sciences and International Crops Research Institute for Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT).

The contest was judged by Taj Vivanta’s chef Ramaswamy Selvaraj, ICRISAT nutritionist Anitha Seetha and noted actress Rakshita. Students from Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana competed as teams of two. Seventeen of the teams will be shortlisted to compete at the International Trade Fair to be held in Bengaluru Palace from January 18-20.

In the next preparatory event to be held on December 7, the state government will organise a smart food competition for all the chefs of star hotels. In this competition, chefs from renowned hotels across the country will compete to see which of them prepare the best millet-based meal.
