This year\’s ALDAR Young Chef Award, held in collaboration with the local Ayla hotels, saw talented students present some of their finest dishes for a panel of judges including Ayla Grand Hotel’s very own Cluster Executive Chef Sailesh K. Balan and Senior Oriental Chef Wassim Darwich.

The winners who participated have been announced recently at the Al Ain Academy, where the competition took place, with 15-year-old Salma Al Dhaheri awarded the Young Chef of the Year title in the Secondary category, and 9-year-old Elsie Johnstone in the Primary category.

“They were all brilliant, they all deserved to win. It was almost impossible to choose! They have all worked incredibly hard to get to the finals and they should all be very proud,” said Denise Buttigieg, the Food and Nutrition teacher at Al Ain Academy.
