summer theme and a gateau of their choice.

competitors were put through a very stringent test. They had to be creative and
use the stipulated range of top quality ingredients provided by our
sponsors.  It was a good test of the
culinary techniques, discipline and also creativity. The standards were all
very high, and for each Global Chefs Challenge, we can see competitors
continually pushing themselves and exploring new boundaries.”
