Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre Chef Wins Double Silver at Ika World Culinary Olympics

Published on : Thursday, February 14, 2013

The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre’s (the Centre) reputation for excellent catering is again in the spotlight, thanks to the commendable achievement of Chef Mohamad Noor Musa at the 23rd IKA World Culinary Olympics (the Olympics) held in Germany.

Chef Mohamad Noor, Chef Garde Manger at the Centre was chosen to represent Malaysia as part of the 12-strong team to compete in the Olympics. He won Silver for his creative ‘Symphony Seafood Platter’ in the Individual category. The team clinched Silver in the Group category. Malaysia finished a very respectable 08th this time – a big jump from its 40th placing in 2008.

Chef Mohamad Noor’s ‘Symphony Seafood Platter’ was judged on presentation, practicality and style. The judges were particularly impressed with the use of taro as an ingredient in seafood platter. The Malaysian participation was organised by the Chefs Association of Malaysia and Tourism Malaysia with the aim of promoting Asian ingredients, spices and herbs to an international audience.

In congratulating Chef Mohamad Noor on his achievement, the Centre’s General Manager Datuk Peter Brokenshire stated that this award “is a reflection, not just of Chef’s talent and hard work, but also the Centre’s 51-strong Culinary, Beverage and Catering teams who continuously strive to enhance their gastronomic capabilities and delivering world-class culinary offerings.”

His achievement is hot on the heels of the Centre winning the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Malaysia Chapter’s inaugural “Dato’ Lau Foo Sun Excellence in Dining Award” late last year. This is further testament of the Centre’s growing reputation in the culinary world and the quality of its 5-Star Banqueting experience which delivers both fine dining and excellent value.

The IKA (Internationale Kochkunst Ausstellung)World Culinary Olympics is the oldest culinary competition of its kind, having been held every four years since 1900. It is considered the most important event in this field and the biggest culinary exhibition in the world. Some 1,320 chefs from 54 countries competed in Germany.
