Botswana Agricultural Marketing Board (BAMB) hosted its first Chef’s Competition at the Culinary School of Cooking last Thursday.
The competition was meant to promote food tourism and encourage local chefs to include traditional food in their menu.
The competition saw chefs from different hotels, schools and restaurants battling it out to prepare traditional cuisines that will be featured in the upcoming Dijo Tsa Rona Recipe book.
Out of the seven chefs that took part in the competition, Chef Tshokolo from Lansmore Hotel took the first position.
She walked away with a Knife set, a food hamper, a feature in the upcoming recipe book, a ticket to the Dijo tsa Rona Food show
and prize money.
The Event Organizer, Mompati Maruapula from EBAT Media said as part of their re-branding exercise, BAMB decided to carry out events that would change perception and make sense of who they are as a supplier and marketer of locally grown traditional food in Botswana.
He further said that the competition is teaser to the upcoming Dijo Tsa Rona Food show that is billed for this weekend.
The top three recipes will be featured in Dijo tsa Rona Recipe book to help market Botswana cuisine both nationally and internationally,” he said.
