The Rupchanda-Star Lifestyle Super Chef enters its second week, with the Super Chef team visiting Khulna, after a successful visit to Sylhet. The sleepy northern division promises to throw up a lot of surprises for the judges and the participants, as stakes are high -- with the Super Chef crown and Taka 5 lakh to be won.
As with the Sylhet round, the Khulna round will also see the selection of four of the best candidates. They will be selected after grueling rounds of MCQ tests, written tests, food tests and certain tasks. The judges will score the participants on their knowledge, preparation, food presentation and the Super Chef quality that one must have.
The MCQ and written tests have been specially designed to find each participant's knowledge of food, nutrition and food preparation. The tests are made a bit more difficult with plenty of open-ended questions. Finally, the judges taste the food and then score it on a number of criteria, and then, from all those who audition, some 25 to 30 will be selected for the tasks round where they will have to perform tasks assigned by the judges.
This week's judges will include TV personality and author Shawkat Osman; Abdullah Tareq, former head chef of Cilantro; MA Mannan, owner of Grill House & Restaurant; Ali Azam, head chef of the restaurant; Mahabuba Rahman, adviser, Siyam Cooking Centre and Eti Mahmud, director of Orange Cooking Centre.
Rupchanda-Star Lifestyle Super Chef airs tonight on ntv at 9pm. A complete review of the show is coming up in tomorrow's issue of Star Lifestyle.
