Food accolades galore were once again awarded to the consummate Al Jawaher Reception & Convention Centre (JRCC) chef team at the recent East Coast Fujairah Culinary Competition. The competition, which was held at Miramar Al Aqah Beach Resort on the 8th and 9th of June, saw the JRCC team receiving the 3rd highest score overall.
The good news? They’re prepped up for Ramadan; JRCC, a great location in Sharjah for events and celebrations, will offer a spectacular Majles for families and friends for dining and quality time with family and friends, from June 18 to July 17.
Visitors will be spoilt for choice, with the Kahraman Majles consisting of two exclusive, beautifully designed 30-seater Majleses, two private dining Majleses that can each fit up to 20 guests, and an exclusive dining area for up to 100 guests that includes a stage and equipment for corporate Ramadan gatherings. The delicious menu will be produced by the award winning team, with a focus on popular local and regional Arabic cuisines.
At the final count, the JRCC team took home 10 awards (1 gold, 4 silver, 5 bronze) and one merit competing against more than 300 culinary entries in different categories. The team shone across a broad range of categories, including: Three-Course Gourmet Dinner Menu, Pralines & Nougatines, and Cake Decoration-Practical and Beef Practical Cookery.
Born in Syria, the Head Chef Jebraiel has been Executive Chef at JRCC since early 2013. He has extensive kitchen experience in five-star hotels across the UAE, including The Ritz-Carlton (Dubai), Fairmont (Dubai), and Ramada Downtown Dubai, as well as the Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman.
Commenting on the outcome of the competition, Chef Jebraiel said, “This is one of the more important events in which we compete, and our team of seven chefs managed to win ten medals. In addition, we were awarded third place out of thirty-one contending local and international teams, despite the difficulties we faced during the event’s preparatory stages.”
Organised by the ECG and the World Association of Chefs Societies, the East Coast Fujairah Culinary Competition hosted a panel of certified judges from the UAE and abroad.
