FricoFrieslandCampina, the renowned Dutch dairy company in cooperation with the Egyptian Chefs Association held a ‘Cooking with Frico cheeses’ competition to demonstrate to chefs the versatility of their Frico cheese loaf range.

Chefs of Cafés and Restaurants gathered on the 28th of February at Umami Kitchen for an exciting cheese cooking competition organized by the Egyptian Chefs Association and sponsored by FrieslandCampina. Chef Wesam Masoud, ECA Board Members & Culinary Ambassador of FrieslandCampina, facilitated the competition which was attended by 14 talented chefs. Chef Wesam was assisted in the organization and judging of the competition by ECA’s renowned Board Member Chef Moustafa El Refaey, Certified Executive Chef and Partner in Zooba Restaurants. Also in attendance were the representatives of FrieslandCampina, Sales Manager Mohamed Abdellah and Ahmed Nour in charge of the Horeca division.

Each participant was given a 45 minute time limit in which they had to make a sandwich and cook a dish in which Frico cheeses played a central role. Chef Wesam Masoud and Chef Moustafa El Refaey not only judged the competition but also provided valuable advice and tips for the improvement of each plate presented to them. This resulted in a very informative and useful practice run for all the chefs who later this year will be participating in the ECA competitions to be held at the Hace hotel trade fair. This is scheduled to take place from 30 October till 2 November at the Cairo International Conference Center.

After a day full of fun and sharing expertise Chef Wesam announced the overall winner of the most creative and tasty cheese creations. Yapi N’cho Esaie Edmond Tanguy, Chef of Flambé Restaurant was the overall winner of the competition, while Doaa Hassan, Chef of Relish Restaurant & Bar came second and Mohamed Abdel Nabi Abdel Fattah, Head Chef of Evento Restaurant & Café took the overall third placement. The three winners all took home a Tefal Sandwich Maker kindly donated by FrieslandCampina.

The Egyptian Chefs Association wishes to thank FrieslandCampina for their generous sponsorship and Umami kitchen for hosting the event. Many thanks also to Chef Wesam Masoud and Chef Moustafa El Refaey for facilitating the event and giving valuable feedback to each participating chef. We had lots of fun and learned a lot! Congratulations to the winners and all the participants!
