Five teams of four persons to a team took part. They had to create a dish made from items without having the items cooked. The level of creativity and innovation to the various recipes was truly inspiring to see. The audience were thrilled to discover new ways a "rojak" sauce could be made or how bread could be combined with other condiments. The winning creations were called Delizioso Panino (Delicious sandwiches) and Guava Mocktail, and won by the team of first year Diploma in Hotel Management students.
