Here we are in 4th round of ‘Cook like a Celebrity Chef’. I am really happy to see that this event become popular and receiving more entries now.
Though we cook everyday & share them on our blogs or facebook pages, there are some simple tricks that we can use to improve the quality of the meals. Professional Chefs always use their own techniques to make their customers happy, and keep them coming back. So, the basic idea behind this event is to improve our culinary skills.
Event received so many entries this month,I am really happy & I visited all the blog posts. However due to 2 weeks of holiday in Sri Lanka and due to problem with my internet connection, I could not comment on each post, But I tried to comment on all as I can.Really happy to find many new recipes and new blogs…

The Best Food Stylist

It was hard to decide the Best Food stylist. But using most views, likes received from other social media and using my own view and a third party judge, we could decide who the best Food Stylist is. Food Styling and food presentation is part of the culinary skills which we need to grow. Also, it is a part of the theme behind this event. Before anybody taste the food, it should be appealing. By considering all these facts,
The Best Food Stylist award goes to Nitha’s Kitchen for her Chola Paniyaram recipe.I hope you all would agree with us for this selection.

The Best Recipe

Now, this is the hardest decision we had to take. All the recipes submitted are great. It was really hard to decide on a best recipe among all. For the best recipe, we considered the below parameters.
-Creativity
-Nutritional value of the recipe
-Presenting skills
-How clear the instructions are
-Time consuming and adjusting with daily busy life
-Any special advantages from that recipe
-How it is matching with the theme of ‘Cook like a Celebrity Chef’
Other than that, we considered the no of views that recipe has gained from the listed recipes and likes, sharing gained from social media.
After a hard process, The Best Recipe is Cabbage Carrot Curry from My Cooking Journey
