Battle of the Kitchens is a Dubai one-night event, taking place 28 October, that will see teams of hotel chefs compete against each other in front of an audience in a bid to be crowned the best in Dubai.

The event follows the same concept as the TV talent show Masterchef Australia. Each team of chefs will be given common ingredients, such as eggs and butter, plus ‘mystery box’ ingredients, and these mystery ingredients could be anything from a chicken to a marshmallow. Afterwards, the dishes will be tasted and marked by the judges.

The first event of its kind in UAE, Sascha Winter, the mastermind behind it, said, “It’s the chefs’ time to shine before a judging panel and a large local audience.”

Executive Chef Ashley Goddard, Head Pastry Chef Budi Setiono and Sous Chef Iman Fayumi will be battling from the Meydan Hotel. Shangri-La Hotel will have Executive Chef Laurent Brunacci, Executive Sous Chef Driss Daabaz and Sous Chef Prasad Subasinghe; Fairmont Dubai will send Executive Sous Chef Hugh Styles, Sous Chef Matthew Piercy and Chef de Partie Rajiv Subba.

President of the Emirates Culinary Guild Uwe Micheel, celebrity chef Suzanne Husseini and author and General Manager of Barakat Micheal Wunsch are set to judge the feat. Also, a random person from the audience will be chosen to join the panel and judge the chefs on the night.

INFO: Dhs190 per person and includes one non-alcoholic drink, a selection of food and an after party hosted by a DJ. Tickets through Time Out Dubai tickets. 7pm, 28 October 2011, Shangri-La Hotel Dubai. For more information visit www.xperience-me.com or call 055 101 5391.
