Held in Abu Dhabi, the Singapore Junior Chefs Club emerged as champions in the second edition of the Alen Thong Golden Coffee Pot Young Chef Challenge. The gastronomic competition took place from 10 December to 12 December, and required participating teams to prepare a cold buffet table for 40 people in just 48 hours.
The Alen Thong Golden Coffee Pot Young Chef Challenge is organized by the Abu Dhabi chapter of the Emirates Culinary Guild in collaboration with the World Association of Chefs' Societies. The competition was launched in memory of John Alen Thong, a founding father of the Emirates Culinary Guild, who passed away in 2015. It was formed in 2016 and is part of La Cuisine at SIAL, an event for foodservice professionals around the world.
The Singapore team consisted of Elvin Chew (Manager); Ong Jing Qin (Team Captain); members Daren Teo, Lim Wei Ling, Joe Chong; and Rachel Chong (Team Pastry). This is the second consecutive time Singapore took home the Gold.
