Billed as Food Fiesta, Marriott Asia Pacific Bar & Chef Workshop 2017, the event showcases the cooking skills of Marriott’s regional top chefs using Meliomar’s seafood products and other homegrown ingredients.

8 groups of Marriott-Asia Pacific chefs were asked to draw lots (seafood to use in their dishes), and were given two hours to complete their dish of choice using the type of seafood that was picked by their respective team leaders.

The winners will be declared by means of ping-pong ball voting. The audience, composed of local residents, bloggers and Meliomar employees will vote based on the best dish of their choice by dropping each ping-pong ball in a big plastic container. The team with the most number of ping-pong ball balls will be declared the winner.
