The cook-off was divided into two batches with 8 students per batch. For me, the first 8 semi-finalist did very well. Each students were given 1 and 1/2 hours to cook their submitted recipe using any Moulinex food preparation equipment and was judged according to  Taste (30%), Mise En Place/Ease of Preparation (20%), Creativity/Originality (15%) and Visual appeal (15%)

For me, all of them possessed the qualities of a future chef. The recipes look nice, creative and all of them are interesting dish.  16 Semi-finalists not only enjoyed the competition, with the guidance from Moulinex team and judges’ comments they surely went home loaded with knowledge and skills.
