Reflecting its passion for culinary excellence, a team of professional chefs from Millennium Resort Mussanah won bronze at the seventh annual ‘Professional Chef Competition’, the Sultanate’s most prestigious cuisine contest. The resort was represented by Chaudan Singh, Atika Tarafi, and Lionel Ravindra Kumara during the event which featured 25 of Oman’s best gastronomic minds for the ultimate food challenge. Organized by the Chefs Guild of Oman at the Oman International Exhibition Centre, the event featured a number of exciting trials that pushed the professionalism of all contenders to the test.

The competition had six categories for participants to choose from including three-tier wedding cakes, tapas, petit fours, live cooking mystery boxes, and five-course gourmet dinner menus. Competitors were graded by an expert judging panel on their flavours, hygiene, creativity, presentation and technique. Millennium Resort Mussanah was the only participating hotel whose entire team walked away with medals as its chefs recorded major scores in the mystery live box and petit four categories.

Christoph Schleissing, General Manager of Millennium Resort Mussanah, said, “We are proud to achieve this milestone, which reflects the immense talent of our culinary teams and the innovation they have instilled in every aspect of our dining services. Their perseverance and expertise are a true testament to our growth into one of the Sultanate’s finest establishments for world-class cuisine and hospitality. As we build on the success, guests can look forward to even higher levels of the impeccable quality and service associated with our name.”

Dakshnamoorthy Subramanian, Executive Chef of Millennium Resort Mussanah, commented, saying, “The passion we have to create an unparalleled dining experience was the inspiration behind our landmark success in the Professional Chef Competition. Each dish, recipe and technique we utilize are designed to inspire the senses of our valued customers, an ethos on full display throughout the competition. The participation of our team mates and their subsequent third-place finish will inspire them to work harder, continue learning and studying the art of gastronomy in order to achieve their aspirations.”

Set on the picturesque Al Batinah coastline, Millennium Resort Mussanah is home to three restaurants that serve a wide range of local and international delicacies’. The resort’s dining options include the tantalizing fusion of Moroccan and Asian cuisine at the Al Bahar, Azure’s European and Mediterranean inspired buffet, and the delightful Mydan Restaurant. The resort also offers immaculate settings to match its stunning dining services, with terraces and dining areas facing the sparkling Indian Ocean.
