The latest BBC Good Food Middle East event saw four food-loving couples come together at the Chefs Palette Cooking Studio, Fairmont The Palm on 10th February to battle it out in the kitchen at London Dairy’s Valentine’s Cooking Competition.
With a romantic overnight stay for two including dinner at Fairmont The Palm up for grabs to the winning couple of London Dairy’s Valentine’s Cooking Competition, BBC Good Food Middle East welcomed four couples at the Chefs Palette Cooking Studio, Fairmont The Palm on 10th February.
Kick-starting the event, chef Romain Van Durmen of Chefs Palette, revealed the mystery dessert of a deconstructed Snickers bar made with London Dairy’s ‘pralines & cream’ ice cream to the competing couples. After a run through of how to make the challenging dessert, the couples were equipped with 45-minutes, all essential ingredients, and the task of re-creating chef Romain’s dish.
After a heated competition and tough deliberation judging based on the criteria of taste, presentation, timing, use of ingredients and creativity, chef Romain revealed Nicoleta & Ivan as the winning couple. The two walked away with a perfect prize for Valentine’s Day – an overnight stay at Fairmont The Palm, including dinner for two at Seagrill Restaurant & Lounge.
Commenting on their win, the couple said: “We’re so excited to win this competition. We have our own food blog and cook together at home as much as we can, so this means a lot to us. The dessert created by chef Romain tasted great. We loved how the warmth of the chocolate brownie was complemented by London Dairy’s cold pralines & cream ice cream – we’ll be making it at our next dinner party!”
