  Global
Chefs Challenge 2018  – Results Revealed!

 

14 July 2018 – After two years of exciting national and
Continental selections, the finals of the Global Young Chefs Challenge, Global
Chefs Challenge and the Global Pastry Chefs Challenge took place at the
Worldchefs Congress & Expo from

12 – 14 July at the Kuala Lumpur
Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.




The winners who emerged from the days of intense competition are:
Jimmi Eriksson from Sweden (Global
Chefs Challenge),
Niall Larjala from
Finland, (Global Young Chefs Challenge),and
Lim Wei Hrn from Singapore (Global Pastry Chefs Challenge).

 

The format

 

The Global
Chefs Challenge
featured 18 countries, where competitors prepared a
four-course menu, each with 12 portions over two sessions.  Invited guests were invited to taste the
dishes at the competition arena, which was transformed into a pop-up
restaurant.

 

At the Global Young Chefs Challenge, ten teams from all over the world each prepared a 3-course menu, each
with 4 servings.

 

At the Global Pastry Chefs
Challenge,
10 top patissiers
created a chocolate centerpiece with a minimum height of 60cm
6 portions of plated desserts based on a
summer theme and a gateau of their choice.

 

Says chief judge, Gert Klotze, “The
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.”



Thomas Gugler, President of Worldchefs adds, “The Global Chefs Challenges have
always been an integral part of the Congress. It is a platform Worldchefs have
developed to continually encourage and educate chefs to achieve perfection on
the plate. The response to the competition and the standards exhibited has
really been outstanding.”
