The inaugural, The Chef’s Table, debuted this year, with selected teams from leading hotels and restaurants being pitted against one another in front of thousands of visitors.
JW Marriott Marquis Hotel secured first place in the Chef’s Table challenge, which had Carrefour as the exclusive F&B partner. The competition was judged by 4 expert chefs, led by Chef Uwe Micheel, President of the Emirates Culinary Guild and each 3 hour battle saw 3 full lunches and 3 dinner menus cooked-up daily. The Chef’s Table was one of the most electric parts of the entire show floor complementing everything that this year’s HORECA and OE&S sectors were all about.
Chef Uwe Micheel, head judge and President of the Emirates Culinary Guild said, “Given that this was the first year of Chef’s Table competition, this was a fantastic event. We had a good mix of teams that were participating in a competition for the first time ever along with the more experienced ones. There was an immense and contagious passion that had all the teams charged up, and some splendid teamwork that judges were pleased to see throughout the competition".
The Chef's Table will be back in 2019.
We are pleased to announce that The Chef's Table will be back for a second edition at The Hotel Show Dubai 2019 and we are looking forward to a bigger competition with many more participants. Once again, we will have a number of expert judges throughout the 3 days of the competition who will score the participating teams for mise en place, culinary skills, presentation and, of course, taste.
