The Winning Dishes in Full Spotlight
An aromatic butter chicken with cumin infused naan, was delicately prepared by Master Meneth Kahapola. Master Shaluka Herath, on the other hand, concocted shrimp and cream cheese filled ravioli with a brown butter sauce. The dishes upon inquiry, and judge’s critiques were exquisite masterpieces and a big hit among the crowd.
The Culinary and Hospitality Club interviewed our crowned cooks to inquire how they felt pre and post competition.
The Culinary and Hospitality Club applauds and wishes the best of luck to the young champions.
