TPs culinary instructor at the Tourism Academy
@ Sentosa, Chef Jasmine Ng, has led a team of Singapore
chefs to a prestigious win in Switzerland.
The team competed successfully at the Salon Culinaire
Mondial held in Basel on Nov 23 last year. They took
home two gold medals, one trophy for the highest score
in Cold Display and Overall Champion in the World. Held
only once every six years, winning at this prestigious
culinary competition is seen as one of the most coveted
and valuable culinary distinctions. It is also one of
just six global competitions accredited by the World
Association of Cooks Societies.
The Singapore national team competed against nine others
from Europe and North America and, as the only Asian
country represented, certainly made an impact on the
world cuisine map. Winning did not come easy for the
team, which spent nine gruelling
months preparing for the competition. In addition, they
also benefi ted from the valuable support of ex-team
members who were
a source of professional feedback.
