This cook off is held every year in order to honor five lucky mothers along with their children for a fun Masterchef inspired cooking challenge inclusive of amazing prizes and a panel of serious judges. This is done as the second leg after the FABULOUS and STUNNING Mother's Day brunch they hosted on the 14th of May.
This year there were five stunning mothers and their beautiful daughters who took up the social media challenge of providing the judges a dish using both chicken and Pelwatte butter since they were the main sponsee to grace the event.
The event started off with comperes Sarah Faisal & Haleema Nazar who got the crowd energized and motivated by reading out all the exciting prizes and what's in store for the lucky winners!
Here's the breakdown of the prizes;
First place - both mum and daughter would receive gold medals and the prestigious Mommy & Me Cook Off award along with a certificate signed but the culinary guru and current general manager of Waters Edge - Mr. Rohan Fernandopulle and the infamous Executive Chef - Buddhika Samarasekara. Not just that, but also product gift vouchers from Pelwatte dairy, voucher from cutting stations salon for all your grooming! This doesn't just end there, you also get a Thunapaha voucher for two and Sunday Brunch for two! HOW AWESOME IS THAT?
Second place - Silver medals, certificates and dinner for two at Pranzo!
Third place - Bronze medals, certificates and high tea voucher for two at the Edge!
