CateringNews Middle East - - Event Review -

The chef beat 35 com­peti­tors to grab the top spot in the Open Show­piece cat­e­gory at Emi­rates Salon Culi­naire.

After ob­serv­ing the com­pe­ti­tion last year, Ni­cole Mrad, founder Cup N Cakes signed up her head Chef Jer­ick Antes for the Salon Culi­naire com­pe­ti­tion, who crafted a cake right out of a scene from the Pi­rates of the Car­ribean movie.

“I watched the movie and thought the scene could make me win at the com­pe­ti­tion due to the lit­tle de­tails that were in it,” Chef Jer­ick said.

It took me four days to make it and the prepa­ra­tion was a tough and pres­suris­ing as I had or­ders to cater to as well but it all worked out well,” he added.

Speak­ing about her chefs suc­cess­ful par­tic­i­pa­tion, Mrad said: “I am so proud and happy, when I signed him up he was con­fi­dent that he could cre­ate some­thing ex­cep­tional and his tal­ent re­ally showed out to­day.

“I am a per­son who liked to mo­ti­vate peo­ple who have tal­ent and show their skills to the world. When you en­cour­age your col­leagues and em­ploy­ees, they be­come happy and self-mo­ti­vated which even­tu­ally re­sults in their de­sire to achieve more.

“It is very im­por­tant to give that push and en­cour­age­ment to the peo­ple around you, es­pe­cially when you can show your skills in the form of and art,” she added.
