Budding culinary stars took part in a dramatic showdown under the watchful eye of renowned chef Gordon Ramsay at the first-ever Marina Bay Sands Culinary Olympics on 3 March 2017.

Held at Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen, the competition saw three finalists battling their way through a live cook-off to present a healthy yet delicious dish featuring sustainable ingredients. The panel of judges included Gordon Ramsay, Vice President of Food and Beverage of Marina Bay Sands Christine Kaelbel-Sheares, and Executive Chef of Marina Bay Sands Christopher Christie.

Gordon Ramsay said, “Singapore has an amazing food culture and it is important that we do everything we can to cultivate the next generation of chefs. Anyone can receive world-class training from my team to kick-start their career at Bread Street Kitchen, as well as at the other signature restaurants at Marina Bay Sands. We are passionate in inspiring the next wave of culinary talent in Singapore, from chefs to service staff, sommeliers, and bartenders.” 

Foong Man Chung emerged as champion with his winning dish of yellowtail stuffed with otah, nasi lemak cooked in bamboo served with achar and lemongrass emulsion. “This has to be the most intense 30 minutes of my life! To cook in front of Chef Gordon Ramsay in his kitchen at Bread Street Kitchen is a dream come true. It is an unforgettable experience beyond my day-to-day duties. This recognition and spirit of friendship across the restaurants make me proud of being part of the Marina Bay Sands family,” said Foong Man Chung, winner of the Marina Bay Sands Culinary Olympics.
