Students feel they belonging as they were warmly welcomed by the MIC family. They are more ready to start an exciting journey as they go through the courses that will equip them for the future.
Meanwhile, MIC MasterChef season 2 was one of the highlights of the activities in MIC October 2019 Intake Orientation Day. The competition was joined by current MIC students by pair to compete and showcase their ingenious culinary skills. The objective of the competition is to prepare a unique palatable and plated dish out of instant noodles.
All participants presented their dishes cooked in different techniques and styles that are, indeed, very appetising. The dishes looked exquisite and taste undeniably delicious. One of the dishes prepared was a noodle burrito, a classic noodle sautéed and topped with sausages, crabsticks and scrambled eggs in a wrap. A few dishes were cooked the classic way, a noodle cooked in a special sauce topped with sautéed prawn sunny caramelised onions and sunny side up egg. Some garnished their noodles with cheesy wedges, golden onion rings while some just garnished it with cheese and different herbs and spices. Another dish was cooked like a Japanese pancake, okonomiyaki with wasabi sauce.
The panel of judges had a hard time deciding who the winner was but one thing is clear, all of the dishes were good as evident on their delighted faces when food tasting is being conducted. Winners received cash and gift packs were presented to all participants.
