On the occasion of Father's Day last month, I was invited to witness a COOK OFF. This event was presented by Mr Vickrham of FoodManiacs and Ms Aditi Malhotra of Ikreate in collabration with Crowne plaza, Gurgaon. Siddharth Malhotra, the star of Masterchef season 5 and Executive Chef Nilesh Dev were invited to judge this challenge. Here, the contestants ranged from sweet little children to young men and women. But one thing that was common among the contestants was that they were honouring the 'Best Man' in their life, their Father.

The contestants were given 10 minutes to get all the ingredients from the store and the time for cooking was 1 hour. Each contest was given an individual work station with necessary equipments. Here are some pictures of the amazing dishes....
The points were given on presentation, innovation and taste of the dish. It was a difficult task for the judges to select the winner. Mr Sandeep Batra who made Gol Mirch Chicken and Mrs Rita Arora who made Chicken Roulade were declared joint winners.
