The challenge to the chefs, issued by Swiss kitchen equipment maker Franke, which is a co-sponsor of this year’s regatta, will be judged by celebrity Thai chefs Fang and Faifoo, well known from the Channel 5 TV show Krua INDY.
The yacht chefs who win the top three places will each walk away with a trophy. The winner will also get an induction hob and cash totalling B46,900, while the runner-up will get an oven and cash totalling B29,990, and the second runner-up will get a gas hob and cash totalling B18,990. Even the losers will walk away with some kitchen gear.
“We feel the Franke Yacht Chefs’ Cooking Challenge is a unique way to connect our products and brand with the Phuket marine leisure industry,” said Arnaud Brandt, Managing Director of Franke (Thailand), adding: “The participants will have a fun time, learning from the celebrity chefs and having the chance to win some fantastic prizes.”
Each competitor will receive 100 ingredients and will have two hours to cook a specific dish. The results will be judged by Chefs Fang and Faifoo, and guests of Franke. The winner will be announced the same evening.
