International Chef Day – Photo & Video contest – 2021

We are  thrilled  to announce  the winners  of the second edition of our “International Chef Day” contest.

The primary  aim  of the  contest was to recognise  the  contribution  of  our  galley teams, that through their skill, passion and hard work, add so much flavour to life at sea. We asked our chefs at sea to show us glimpses of their culinary skills by preparing innovative, presentable, and flavourful dishes through photos and videos.

We received almost 400 entries for the contest, and we thank each one of you for taking out the time from your busy schedules on board to send them across. We shared a few of the photographs on social media too and received an overwhelming response. After the contest closed on 18th October, the entries were reviewed and shortlisted by Mr Deva Senapathy, from Scorpio Marine Services, a Hospitality graduate with 30 years of varied experience in Luxury hotels, Catering Institutes, Cruise Liners, Corporate Administration and Human Resources.
