They created “food gangs” of 10 people each, making seven cooking groups. The mission was, create a food delicacy that would be judged by the audience
Each party was given six kilos of goat and chicken, cooking ingredients and drinks for the day’s cookout adventure. Stokes lit. Sizzling soon took over the ambiance. Cooks on each stall got completely absorbed into preparing a scrumptious meal.
The guests were taken on a mouth-watering ride. The picnic-themed event would later turn out to be a delightful afternoon of munching on tasty ‘meaty delicacies.’
