Organized by the Asian Food Channel which is part of the Scripps Networks family of lifestyle networks and Asia’s first and only 24 hour regional food and lifestyle channel, the event was a groundbreaking success which saw the top 20 finalists battling it out using their culinary skill to win the top three prizes worth over RM10,000!
