Fiji’s top professional cooks will represent Fiji at the Global Chefs semi-final in Melbourne next year.

These are professionals who are among 164 participants currently competing for the annual Moffat Chefs Salon Culinaire 2018.

On an annual basis the Fiji Chefs Association, in conjunction with its partners, holds the annual three-day Moffat National Salon Culinaire.

A total of 269 entries were re­ceived by organisers for the event which is underway at the Fiji Na­tional University (FNU) campus in Namaka.

They will be cooking up various dishes.

Fiji Chefs Association president Davendra Reddy said they were working on sending some of the class winners to be part of the Global Chefs semi-final 2019 to be held in Melbourne.

He said this year’s chef ’s competi­tion would be no different from the other years in terms of logistics.

“It is time to think about our most valuable assets of the industry, our talented chefs,” Mr Re4ddy said.

“The decision was purely based on making sure our competitors have the best real live cooking simulations back in professional kitchens.”

He thanked the FNU executives for providing their facilities as a platform to promote the trade they were already developing into their students.

“It is a great day to spend time with professionals sharing the same pas­sion in nurturing the future of the industry,” Mr Reddy said.

Meanwhile, Pacific TAFE Com­mercial Cookery students will also participate in Moffat Salon, 2018.

Last year Pacific TAFE took gold in the class seven junior categories.

This year, they have five students participating in four different classes against other resorts and training institutions.

The competition runs for three-days over different areas of culi­nary excellence and participants are awarded medals in various cat­egories.
