Food Hotel Indonesia 2019 Jakarta
ZERO Plastic, a standard in Indonesia` s F&B
….a fantastic Food Hotel Indonesia 2019 – Culinary Challenge was held again in Jakarta by UBM and Indonesian Chefs Association under the lead of Chef Stefu with his wonderful senior and much junior team of professionals and volunteers. Over 30 World Chefs certified Judges were the guaranty for fair, professional culinary judging – with the most emphasize to keep the dignity and face of the participants,– non destructive so very much educational, supportive and encouraging commends by all Culinary Food Judges as it is the Ethic and Code of Conduct for all World Chefs judges by nature to motivate and guide young chefs from all over the world.
Real Certified – Culinary Judging by Educated Experts,- not by TV Clowns acting as Judges …..
In no way to compare with the most negative rated behavior and destructive language of Myanmar s so called Master Chef Judges seen now weekly at TV. A TV show only – so everyone from winner to judges fly high their personalities as they were real master s… Far from any standard. Food ready cooked was also not destroyed un judged every one go a face and fair chance. Compared to the Myanmar TV Judges – here in Jakarta at a real professional culinary competition worked for ZERO Food Waste – ZERO Hunger as it is a Global UN Goal… so this part of global 2019 burning issues the Myanmar TV Judges still have to learn or realize the reality…
As highlight from Myanmar we offered ” Shwe Htee – Lephet “, pickled Tealeave from Kyaukmee Northern Shan State to much happiness for the Indonesian Chefs which knew it already from 2018 MCAC. As well for Myanmar ASEAN permanent office in Jakarta.
