A group of Executive Chefs from the Impiana Group rose to the occasion and cooked their hearts out in a crossover cooking challenge modelled after Top Chefs and Masterchef recently.
Held on 10 April, Executive Chefs from the various Impiana properties in Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia gathered under one roof at Impiana KLCC for the Impiana Group Chefs’ Workshop.
After a hearty breakfast together at Tonka Bean, the participating chefs were given 45 minutes to cook a dish with a mystery star ingredient – golden snapper. Fresh produce like veggies, Emborg dairy products and other essentials were theirs for the picking.
Each of the chefs were scored on taste, texture, presentation, flavour, appearance and even history or rationale of their final creation. I am filled with admiration for the chefs' quick-thinking and skills in rising to the challenge.
Chef Jochen Kern was the consummate judge; always brief and succinct when he imparted advice, constructive criticism and feedback on each chef's performance and dish outcome.
