The Alen Thong Golden Coffee Pot Challenge for Young Chefs is an invitation-only competition. The Chefs Guild of Maldives was extended an invitation to participate in this year’s Alen Thong Golden Coffee Pot Challenge and will be sending a team of Maldivian young chefs.

The young chefs look forward to working together in a team. One chef commented, “talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.” Another young chef commented, “the nice thing about teamwork is that you always have each other on your side.”
