Extending its International Chefs Day celebrations, Hard Rock Hotel Goa organised ‘Master Chef Culinary Challenge’ for band members to showcase their flair for cooking at the hotel. The event saw enthusiastic staff from kitchen and other departments battle it out for the winning title. Each contestant had to whip up one main course along with an accompaniment in a one hour mystery box challenge.


Speaking about the inaugural edition, Vikas Sharma, Vice President Operations, Hard Rock Hotel Goa, said, “This is the first time we have hosted an event of this kind for our band members and it was indeed overwhelming to see the response received, especially from our non-kitchen staff members. The cook-off was conceptualised to give each one an opportunity to test their culinary skills based on presentation, taste, cleanliness, creativity and amount of food wastage. The team did a fabulous job adopting innovative cooking styles to bring out delectable dishes to the table. It just shows the pool of talent and potential we have across departments. We look forward to make this an annual event to keep the enthusiasm going and live up to our motto – All Is One”.


Amidst all the chopping, dicing, whisking and clatter, some of Goa’s top Chefs were seen interacting with the participants and motivating the staff. Among them were Chef Sunit Sharma, Chef Bhasker Kargeti and Chef Prakhyat Bharat who were on the judging panel along with Chef Arun Vats, Executive Chef, Hard Rock Hotel Goa. The culinary team celebrated their success with Chef Navaraj Gurung winning the Master Chef title while Chef Rohit Rawat and Chef Arvind Sharma were declared 1st and 2nd runners up. In the HOD category, Dnyaneshwar Yadav from Engineering won the 1st place while Supriyo Samanta from F&B bagged the 2nd place. In the “All Staff” challenge, Sefin Mathew and Gobinda Kachari teamed up to win the second place while the F&B duo Suman Das and Vaman Parsekar clinched the first place.
