Chefs head for kitchen battle

14 Oct 2006

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian hotel chefs are heading for a showdown here next month.

Whatever the outcome of this show of prowess in the kitchens, it is only good news for those who love their food.

The Malaysia International Gourmet Festival, from Nov 2 to 29, will see 25 chefs from different hotels dishing out a wide range of cuisine, from Chinese and Pan-Asian to Japanese, French, Mediterranean, Thai and Italian.

The festival will be launched at Shangri-la Hotel on Nov 1.
The participating hotels are the Equatorial, Hilton, Renaissance, Mandarin Oriental, Shangri-la, The Westin, Crowne Plaza, Marriott (Putrajaya), Genting Highlands Hotel, Renaissance (Malacca) and Four Seasons Resort (Langkawi).

Organising chairman Steve Day said the festival was held to promote the country’s best restaurants and resident chefs.

"There’s little point flying in foreign-based chefs to hold a one-day food promotion when we have some of the best chefs living right here," he said.

The festival is expected to attract some 100,000 people.
