With 12 of the 24-participant list from Sylhet, Khulna and Barisal selected for the finals, it is Rajshahi's turn now. With nearly 150 having registered for this round, the land famous for its mangoes and lychees may just land another achievement-- the country's first ever Super Chef.
The judges for the Rajshahi round will be Shawkat Osman, noted TV personality and food critic, and Afroza Banu, a renowned actor and culinary expert, along with Minara Sharmin, a Food and Nutrition teacher of Haji Jamiruddin Shafina Mohila College; Mahmuda Begum, a Political Science teacher of Borendro College; Nusrat Jahan Rumi, catering teacher of Jatiyo Mohila Sangstha; and Nasima Khatun, lecturer of Islamic History of Rajshahi City College.
As with the previous rounds, the Rajshahi round will also see the selection of four of the best candidates, selected after grueling rounds of MCQ tests, written tests, food tests and of course by being given certain tasks. Judges will mark the participants on their knowledge, preparation, food presentation and the Super Chef quality.
This week, Rajshahi is expected to yield four excellent candidates. This week's segment will be hosted by Naziba and Taaha. The show airs at 9pm on ntv.
