The second edition of Best Chef Oman, the biggest culinary competition in Oman for amateur cooks and aspiring chefs, will highlight traditional Omani and international fare while showcasing the best of local culinary talent at the 9th Food & Hospitality Oman from September 9 to 11 at the Oman International Exhibition Center.
Best Chef Oman was first launched at Omanexpo’s 2013 edition of Food & Hospitality Oman, an initiative resulting from the pioneer organizer’s aims to advance the food and hospitality industries by way of an entertainment-cum-education platform.
The competition, organized in cooperation with Oman Tourism College, will place participants in a challenge based on skill, creativity, presentation, and talent where they are required to prepare a two-course menu each under the Omani and international menu categories.
Exhibition manager for Food & Hospitality Oman Ammar Ahmad says “We are pleased with the enthusiastic response to Best Chef Oman in its inaugural edition. This has urged us to continue it in this edition of Food & Hospitality Oman and make it a permanent feature of the show.”
“This also demonstrates the show’s value to the industry, which has been recognized since its first edition in 2005. We are continuously finding ways to provide the best show possible for our visitors.”
Owing to the number of hopeful participants interested to take part in the competition, Omanexpo has extended the deadline for participation registration to August 31.
