On Friday, September 18th, Rukhsama and Irum competed in The Apprentice: Community Cooking Challenge sponsored by the Toronto Public Health and hosted by the Paintbox Catering and Bistro. Three teams of two, competed in a high stakes battle to take home the much sought after title. Contestants were asked to prepare two dishes of their choice, taking into consideration factors such as nutrition, taste, presentation and spices. A panel of four judges tasted each dish, evaluating the cooks on their creativity and cooking talents. The competition was tough but in the end, Access Alliance Community Health Centre was the victor. Everyone enjoyed a delicious meal and can hardly wait for the next challenge.
Thank you to Chris Klugman and the team from Paintbox and Nicole Welsh, Director of Healthy Communities – Toronto Public Health, for judging.
