Hilton Pattaya, led by General Manager Rudolf Troestler, recently organized the hotel’s first ‘Culinary Cup 2014’ to encourage and challenge the hotel’s young chefs to showcase their talents.  This event, held August 26 – 27 at Hilton Pattaya, was successful and fulfilled with creativity and fun among the team members.

This competition is an opportunity for young chefs to develop confidence, prove their ability and flair and to create their dishes with passion. Almost 30 candidates were required to prepare a 30-minute live cooking show of one dish which should match the food concept of hotel’s outlets; e.g., Asian, Western or Pastry. The judging criteria included culinary skills and cooking techniques, innovation and creativity, dish presentation, hygiene and safe working practices as well as time management.  The winning candidate was Kanchain Kuhamanee with his ‘Black & White’ menu (roasted snow fish lemon grass essence, spaghetti black ink with chorizo). Kanchain will be representing Hilton Pattaya at the country level round to compete with other Hilton hotels in Thailand.
