YOUNG CHEFS COOK “FROG LEGS” ON JR CHEFACTOR
On the heels of an exciting first episode, the Junior Chefs traded in the rustic Plant Grow Eat farm in Babonneau for the luxurious Cap Maison Resort in Cap Estate. The challenge was to create a main course with frog legs and mango which left some of the contestants hopping around in a frenzy to create a quality dish.
After a shopping spree for all the ingredients needed for the next challenge at GL food market, the official provisioning supplier of Jr Chefactor, the contestants were taken to the resort onboard the luxury SUVs from Trim Air Charter services. Set atop an ocean front bluff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, Cap Maison Resort & Spa is a five star boutique hotel offering ultra modern luxuries with two well known restaurants, “The Cliff at Cap” and “The Naked Fisherman”.
Although frog legs is a well known delicacy in France and Asia, the young chefs had never cooked or seen frog legs before and in the end, two very talented chefs, Robert George and Aaron Pascal handed in their knives and aprons and went home.
According to Chef Craig, Executive Chef at Cap Maison and judge on the panel for Jr Chefactor Caribbean, ‘the challenge wasn’t too harsh but really meant to get the young chefs out of their comfort zone and encourage them to create a dish with ingredients like frogs legs which is a delicacy’. This was not their best week although Edna Butcher emerged with the winning dish of the night preparing a plantain gratin with frog legs dusted with local cocoa.
