Super chef 2012!

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

I did not miss this local production since it started the 2nd edition which was reserved for amateurs only. From a pool of more than 100 applications, a selection of 50 candidates was done. On the first broadcast the 50 contestants were narrowed down(through a series of tasks ranging from cutting vegetables equal sided to making sushi) to 10. Then each week, after a series of  challenges, one candidate was eliminated. The final episode will be broadcast on the 1st December 2012. The finalists are all ladies and the winner gets  kitchen furniture worth MUR 250,000, an air ticket and a training session with the super chefs of the competition.

Since this edition was reserved for amateurs only, we as spectators are in the same shoes as the contestants. It was the first time they heard technical words and as time goes by, they are expected to provide high level culinary works. So it was quite funny to see their work displays completely opposite to what was expected of them. I really enjoyed watching this show-a pure 30 minutes of relaxation and enjoyment!

Good luck M. Jose, Alexandra and Cecile! Que la meilleure win!
