Trinidad and Tobago (PRWEB) June 19, 2012
Trinidad restaurants are home to some of the most renowned chefs in the region. Now, the Courtyard Port of Spain Trinidad Hotel invites junior chefs to show off their culinary skills and join the ranks of the cooking elite.
This Trinidad and Tobago hotel is hosting a competition for junior chefs ages 10-12 and is open to Trinidad and Tobago nationals only. Interested would-be chefs are tasked with creating a 10 to 15 minute video cooking demonstration and send a DVD copy to the hotel, along with a permission slip from the chef’s parent or guardian. DVDs must be submitted by June 30, 2012. The chef deemed to be the best will receive an Apple® iPad.
Furthermore, the top 10 winning entries will be invited to the Courtyard Port of Spain Trinidad Hotel and hone their cooking skills for a week under the watchful eye of Head Chef Raymond Joseph. Hailing from one of the best Trinidad restaurants, Chef Joseph is also the Captain of the Trinidad and Tobago National Culinary Team.
When asked about the Junior Chef Competition, Chef Raymond stated; “Growing up, I knew that I wanted to be a Chef from the age of nine. I think this competition presents a great opportunity to kids who are genuinely interested in the culinary field. At the Courtyard by Marriott, we would like to play our part in developing Trinidad and Tobago’s next generation of culinary talent”
At the end of the week, junior chefs will create a plate to be judged by a team of culinary industry experts. Whoever wins this competition will receive two airline tickets to Curacao and a three night stay at the luxurious Curacao Marriott Resort.
Besides gaining experience at one of the best restaurants in the Port of Spain, applicants will get to experience the rich culture of the Caribbean as well as taking the next step in their culinary evolution.
Winners of the DVD competition will be chosen between July 1 and 15; the announcement will be made shortly thereafter. The culinary training at the Courtyard Port of Spain Hotel will take place August 6-10, 2012, with the culinary competition taking place on the last day.
