The “Hidden Dragon” cooking contest, held at the Cape Panwa Hotel yesterday (Dec 7), saw teams from five Phuket villages take part, with Phuket Vice Governor Piyapong Choowong chairing proceedings.

All five teams were tasked with creating an outstanding dish featuring lobster and pineapple, both ingredients Phuket is well known for. Each team had 45 minutes to cook.

Each team comprised seven members, including well-known chefs in their community, chef consultants and students from the Phuket Vocational College.

The dishes created were:

  • Dry Lobster Curry in the Emerald Swamp (Panang Goong) from Baan Palai; 
  • Hidden Lobster (Goong Sonaep) from Baan Koh Maphrao;
  • Thai Mushroom Soup with Pineapple and Lobster (Gaeng Hed Sapparot Goong) from Baan Manik;
  • Sweet and Sour Stir Fry with Lobster (Pad Priew Wan Goong) from Baan Pa Krongcheep; and
  • Tha Chatchai Heart of Lobster (Yam and Yang Goong served with Pineapple Ice Cream) from Baan Tha Chatchai.

The Baan Koh Maphrao entry, “Hidden Lobster”, won first prize, with the winning team receiving B35,000.

The contest was held as part of the “Check in Phuket” campaign launched by the Phuket office of the Community Development Department, under the Ministry of Interior.

The campaign aims to highlight local delicacies available at five villages in Phuket: Baan Koh Maphrao, on Koh Maphrao (Coconut Island) off Phuket’s east coast in Moo 6, Koh Kaew; Baan Palai in Moo 3, Chalong; Baan Pa Krongcheep in Moo 6, Thepkrasattri; Baan Manik in Moo 7 Srisoonthorn; and Baan Tha Chatchai at the northern tip of the island in Moo 5, Mai Khao.

At the launch of the “Check in Phuket” campaign in October, Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew explained, “Through the Phuket Provincial Community Development Office, this project can raise the standard of local food services and promote the Andaman region as a world-class tourist destination.

“The project also will help to develop leaders in local network and community organizations that can serve as a model for developing the potential of welcoming tourists to be able to generate income for the community,” he said.
