Bali News: Black Box Culinary Challenge - 2004

(2/12/2004)

Back in 1996, a group of 3 men drinking beer on one of Bali's beaches were brainstorming on how best to challenge talented young chefs to improve their culinary skills. The 3 wise men – comprised of a representative of the Australian meat industry, a supplier of gourmet ingredients to Bali's hotels, and a chef - eventually devised the now time-proven and highly successful Black Box Culinary Challenge.

Now having completed its sixth running, the Challenge brings together groups of eager young chefs – all under the age of 30 – who are given a mystery box containing sufficient quantities of Australian meats, dairy product and fresh produce to prepare a 3 course meal for 16 diners. The teams, under the watchful eye of their team captain, then have only one hour to devise a menu plan followed by 24 hours of intense work before they reconvene for the final cook-off.

A critical jury comprised of 5 local food experts judge the competing teams on the basis of composition, creativity, correct preparation, service practicality, taste, proper utilization of ingredients, presentation and consistency. Each cooking team is backed up by a service team whose task it is to wow 16 fortunate gourmands with their service and table presentation skills.

MLA Black Box Culinary Challenge 2004

Sponsored by Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), this year's competition saw 9 hotels compete for honors.
