Top Tooting Cook, the Foodival’s fun competition was ably co-ordinated by ‘firm but fair’ Belinda. We had a record-breaking number of entries.
Here are the dishes – photographed during the judging, so some dishes have begun to be sampled. These are dishes crying out to be tasted (some people had to be held back…):
There’s a wonderful variation of international cultures, colours, local ingredients, skills and why-not-have-a-go represented. How would you choose the different class winners and the overall Top Tooting Cook?
Our three judges worked up and down the long tables in Mushkil Aasaan with their clipboards. They recorded their own views with 25% of marks awarded to each of four criteria:
- How well does the dish fit the category it was entered for?
- How local to Tooting are the dish ingredients?
Tension mounted in the hall as we looked from dish to dish and back at the judges’ impassive faces. Who would win? When could we eat all the dishes?
The overall award of Top Tooting Cook went to…Imira for her Squash Compote!
Here’s the full list of other winners per competition category:
