Catering management and training provider MCTC has transformed seafarers into potential Michelin-starred chefs, judging by the fruits of its annual cooking competition.

Galley crews were invited to create their versions of a well-known “sweet pie” recipe. The resulting gastronomic delights resembled works of art, as seafarers carved the food into amazing shapes.

Chefs were challenged to make shortcrust pastry from scratch, together with a delicious filling.

Each of MCTC clients’ vessels was invited to participate, including crews from Columbia Shipmanagement, Hafnia and BW LPG, with one winner selected from each company.
