THE SIXTH EDITION of the Caribbean Junior Duelling Challenge fired up yesterday afternoon at The Dining Club, Newton Industrial Park, Christ Church.

Among the highlights was a depiction of the island’s underwater beauty by executive pastry chef at the Lincoln Culinary Institute in America, chef Manfred Schmidtke.

He created a centrepiece in an hour and a half by casting sugar to make the base, pulling sugar to mould the fish and coral.

Teams from Barbados, Bonaire, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, St Croix and St Lucia will vie for the 2014 title. After a weekend of competition, the winning team will be announced on Sunday evening, at a gala dinner and awards ceremony.

Executive producer chef Peter Edey, told the NATION a conference was also included this year featuring speakers from the Caribbean Examinations Council, the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Council, as well as demonstrations from chefs Anton Doos and Schmidtke. (LW)
