TIGERS THROWDOWN

on Thursday, 11 July 2013. Posted in Events Covered

Excited diners came out in their numbers to support the inaugural Tigers Who Cook, hosted by the St Anthony’s College Alumni. Patrons had their choice of dining inside the school hall and enjoying the music of the school band up close and personal or dining under the stars bathed in a gentle light from the lit torches.

There was a friendly competiveness in the air as the chefs laid out their tasty creations to be judged by two past pupils, renowned local chef Jason Huggins and restaurateur/chef Paul Mowser. Unfortunately Khalid Mohammed, a past pupil himself was unable to attend. The judges had a difficult choice as well as diners, as there was a multitude of delicious dishes from which to choose. A selection of Curry Stew Pork, Curry Crab and Curry Duck was there for the curry mouths. For those who wanted a taste of the grill, barbecue ribs and chicken were on hand, not to mention other dishes such as shrimp in alfredo sauce, stuffed red fish, and lots of accompanying sides.

However, there were certain dishes that caught the attention of the diners and the judges. David Dumas' Oklahoma Chilli, with which he has won two awards in chilli competitions in the US, was a definite favourite. Topped with a moist chunk of cornbread, the spicy flavours left diners wanting more.

Edward Sirjoo’s Conch Souse was another hit with diners as he explained to them the key in the souse is to make sure the conch is tender not tough. Some of the highlights of the Judges results were : Best Dish – Dhal Goat by Lorenzo White Best Seafood Dish - Bollywood Shrimp by Roger Walcott Most Humorous Name – Real Stuffed Breasts – Anthony Choo Quan

Best Presentation – 6.8 million Stuffed Red Fish by Lester Cassimy

A delightful evening was had by all and a great event by the St Anthony’s alumni which is sure to be a regular fixture on their annual calendar of events. Click here for the full gallery of pictures.
