I called it as an ART

I did a photo shoot for session food presentation (for own pleasure & for working purpose). Bear with me, my shooting skill is not upscale yeah.
I was missed out to indulge myself with this Black Box awarded menu on 6 May 07 @ Hilton KL Sentral, because i received the invitation card quite late and i was with another appointment. ** SAD to MAX!!** don't you know why? I missed out the BEST part of 'people watching' and other team culinary presentation, of coz can't taste the food as well!! *Extremely regreted* coz whole event was sponsored by suppliers, hence it's ABSOLUTELY FFREE OF CHARGE!!
Albeit, i missed out the golden opportunity of the event, yet i still have the chance to taste bit now and camwhore bit. *wink wink*
I admires the fine food presentation, it's an ART! Let me presents you some of the photos yeah... looks so tempting loh~~

Do you know what is MLA Black Box Culinary Challenge??

How the event is run?
• Each event targets 8-16 teams from 5 Star hotels, restaurants, hotel/catering schools, clubs and airline catering. On day 1, teams are given a mystery black box of high quality sponsored ingredients and 1 hour to develop a 3-course menu. They take the box away with them to prepare their menu entries for competition judging and subsequently for guests at a gala dinner the next day

• On day 2, approximately two hundred guests including trade, foodservice buyers, chefs and media come together in a gala dinner where they are treated to a menu of carefully prepared dishes using the ingredients from the black box.

• A panel of international chefs judge the menus prior to the dinner. Special awards are given for Best Main Course and Best Table Display. All teams receive a certificate of participation (Gold, Silver and Bronze level certificates are awarded based on the standards achieved by the team) and the top three winning teams receive Gold, Silver and Bronze medals and cash awards.

• The winner from each country final is flown in to compete in the MLA Black Box Culinary Challenge Global Final which is held in conjunction with the WACS Congress/WACS Asia Pacific Forum.
