About 140 stu­dents are ex­pected to con­verge at the Out­rig­ger Fiji Beach Re­sort for the 5th School Chefs Chal­lenge on July 22. The looked-for­ward-to event has grown from a one school event. Most of the schools of Nadroga/Navosa prov­ince, some from Nadi and pos­si­bly a school from Lau­toka are join­ing this year. Out­rig­ger Fiji Beach Re­sort ex­ec­u­tive chef Shailesh Naidu who has been the driv­ing force for the event said: “This is our com­mit­ment to as­so­ciate with the com­mu­nity and give some­thing back to our peo­ple. “I have put to­gether this pro­gramme to show­case an el­e­ment of our pro­fes­sion through the tourism in­dus­try. This is part of sup­port­ing our kids. “The event has been grow­ing since day one and an­tic­i­pat­ing 140 stu­dents with par­ents, school of­fi­cials and sup­port teams. There will also be ho­tel guests, in­dus­trial in­vi­tees and pa­trons from around the com­mu­nity sup­port­ing the event as well.” Mr Naidu said the out­line of the ac­tual com­pe­ti­tion in­cludes 15 schools par­tic­i­pat­ing in five dif­fer­ent classes.

“Each class will have a 3rd; 2nd and a first place get­ters with each one of these win­ners walk­ing away with medals, tro­phies, cer­tifi­cates, vouch­ers, gift packs and some cash prizes,” he said.

There will also be a lucky dip for all com­peti­tors as well, another chance for the kids to take home some great prizes. Mr Naidu and his culi­nary team will chief judge for the event. The event is spon­sored by Out­rig­ger Fiji Beach Re­sort and sup­ported by Ram Sami, Fiji Gas, Dan­nys, Crest Chicken, Farm Fresh, Bakels, Pa­cific Z-Trala­sia, Fiji Wa­ter, Fiji Chem­i­cals and Fiji Chefs As­so­ci­a­tion. The event is sched­uled to start at 9am and the prize giv­ing cer­e­mony is ex­pected by 3pm.
