The Zest Quest Asia 2020 competition with Tilda Foodservice has announced that the seventh round of the Asian cookery competition will include an all-expenses paid trip to Italy for the Tilda ‘Best Use of Rice’ winning college.
Full-time catering students have the chance to join the Tilda Italia Tour, with time in the Po Valley in Northern Italy and the city of Milan allowing budding chefs the opportunity to learn the story behind Tilda’s world famous Arborio rice, explore the paddy fields and enjoy an exclusive tour of the rice mill.
Annette Coggins, head of foodservice, Tilda UK, explained: “For 2020, we wanted to really reward the student chefs who discover the culinary possibilities of Tilda rice and work hard to take their Asian cooking to the next level. We are very excited to reveal this new prize for Zest Quest Asia and the opportunity to take one lucky college on a once in lifetime gastro tour of Italy.”
Zest Quest Asia, founded by Cyrus and Pervin Todiwala in collaboration with the Master Chefs of Great Britain, was created to inspire students across the UK to consider Asian cookery as a future career. Past winners have enjoyed trips to Mumbai, Colombo, Bangkok, Tokyo, Osaka, and Hanoi. The winners’ destination is a closely guarded secret, revealed only at the final cook off and gala dinner on 7 February 2020 at the Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5.
