Conrad Cairo has proven its culinary leadership among Cairo’s five star hotels winning three awards during the Black Box Competition.

Eight teams of young chefs below the age of 35 accompanied by three waiters per team competed in the occasion of International Chefs Day.
The teams received a black box full of surprise ingredients a day before the gala competition event and had exactly one hour to compose a four-course menu to be submitted to the judges.

The event really put the chefs in the limelight as the stars of the evening.
The talent and creativity of the Conrad team was topped by the collective effort and the team spirit.

The teams were judged by an international culinary panel on taste, skill creativity and artistic merit. Conrad Cairo’s young chefs participated in the competition and scoped three awards:
• Best table decoration award
• Best Soup ( smoked tomato)
• Silver Medal for the whole “black box competition”

Conrad Cairo celebrated this success in a team members gathering conveying a special thanks to the participant team members who contributed in the competition:
• Gede Yadnya (Team Leader and Kamala Chef)
• Mohamed Raouf  (Jayda Commis 1 Chef)
• Atija Kahalek  (Felucca Commis 1 Chef)
• Mostafa Lotfy ( Pastry Commis 2 Chef)
• Mohammed Abdul Rahman (Felucca Supervisor)
• Sameh Ibrahem (BQT Captain)
• Hany Saber (Jayda Supervisor)
• Mohamed Othman (Jayda Waiter)
• Shehab Mahmoud (Steward )


It is worth mentioning that the Conrad Cairo will be opening a set of new stunning restaurants -by the end of 2009 & early 2010- that will bring new modern upscale dining concepts to the hotel, including a South East Asian restaurant KAMALA, an upscale grill OAK GRILL, as well as a contemporary bar & lounge STAGE ONE. Opening mid 2010, SOLANA will open featuring Live Mediterranean cuisine. Not to forget the recently opened JAYDA, open-air modern oriental & Lebanese restaurant and lounge.
Everything from these outlets’ interior designs to the importation of the finest ingredients for use in their kitchens will reflect the world-class experience that has come to be synonymous with the Conrad brand.
