The first edition of the Honeywell Cook Off show kicked off on 18th May, 2019. It was an intense but yet creative cook-off session that had the eight (8) contestants (Elizabeth, Judith, Hauwa, Nelson, Chika, Ken and Juliet) in the competition to battle it out in the Honeywell kitchen. Sadly, the judges said their goodbyes to four of the contestants on the first episode which was the knockout stage.
The challenge for the knockout stage was to “judge at first taste” the judges tasted the dishes made anonymously. Contestants were put to test as they were made to cook Honeywell Noodles amongst other ingredients for 20minutes. Virtually every contestant did exceptionally well in impressing the judges but four were outstanding while four were knockout of the first stage of the cook-off competition.
It will interest you to know that, CHIKA, (wowed the judges with her delicious meal) ELIZABETH, (took her dish to another level by the infusion of lemon which gave her dish a distinct taste), JULIET,(surprised the judges by infusing strawberry in her noodles) and NELSON,(took the judges on a foody adventure from the Honeywell kitchen studios to Asia with his noodles which he infused and plated with pineapple).
The outstanding contestants were given the opportunity to move on to the next stage of the show. The four selected contestants were presented with the Honeywell Cook Off Chef apparel and will be be battling for the grand prize of “N500,000 and a year supply of Honeywell products”.
