The competition is organised annually for participants to showcase their creativity, to gain exposure into the industry, as well as to discover opportunities in the international arena.

The Culinary Art Food Expo is an opportunity for chefs, who work tirelessly behind the scenes every day of the year, and a chance to shine on a wider scale. As corporate entities that continuously aim at raising the bar in culinary excellence, this competition is looked upon as an ideal platform for the talented personnel to both hone their skills as well as strengthen the hold of the hotels as masters in the field.
