Master Chef Returns

This authentic Italian eatery is preparing to welcome back its annual cooking competition.

Cucina Italiana, based in the heart of Juffair, was awarded ‘Best Italian Restaurant’ in 2013 and has been winning fans with its traditional food since 2011.

Meals are prepared using fresh vegetables, handtossed dough and succulent meat and the variety of delicious tomato sauces makes this restaurant a firm favourite as does the genuine Italian vibe diners feel as they step through the doors with funky décor reminiscent of a film set.

From pizzas and pasta to delicious meat dishes, Cucina Italiana has it all and the venue is also famed for its great selection of unique cocktails and house specialities such as the Sicilian Sangria which features flavours such as peach, watermelon and orange.

For those who want to learn how to reproduce the dishes at home, the chef offers cooking classes teaching authentic Italian methods. And, if you already know your carbonara from your fettuccini then why not sign up for the fifth season of the restaurant’s Italian Master Chef Competition which runs from January 14 to February 11.

Registration is now taking place and there will be 36 initial participants. The competition consists of three rounds and all contestants will receive a certificate of participation as well as gifts for taking part.

The first round consists of the eliminations, in which the 36 contestants compete against each other with 12 being chosen to go through to round two – the semi-final – in which the budding chefs must prepare dishes from a box of mystery ingredients.

From this challenge, four will be chosen to go through to the final and battle for the chance to be crowned Italian Master Chef 2018. Throughout the competition, three judges will be present to observe and choose the winners for each round. To be victorious contestants will have to impress the experts with their cooking and individual dishes will be scored on taste, texture, authenticity, balance, portioning and presentation.

A spokesman says: “This will definitely be a wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime experience for all of the contestants. Hurry up and register for the fifth season of Italian Master Chef for a chance to become the next grand winner! Don’t forget all contestants will benefit from gaining a certificate and gifts.”
