The challenge was to create a four-course meal for a jury of three judges from a “mystery box” of ingredients, supplied by Carrefour. Each chef had just two hours to prepare a unique meal. Although the competition was tough, after carefully tasting all of the creations the judges awarded SIROCCO chef Zafer Asci the Best Chef among 14 boats.
