Do you watch MasterChef and think, ‘I could do that’? Well, now you have the chance to throw your hat in the ring and show off your culinary skills to compete for an amazing prize in the UAE.

Dubai Knowledge Park and its business partner, the International Centre for Culinary Arts (ICCA Dubai), have launched a cooking and baking contest to fire up creative talent and identify Dubai’s finest in amateur gastronomy.

The Pasta & Pie Mystery Box Competition aims to separate the fusilli flops from the choux champions by challenging baking and cooking enthusiasts to prepare your best fresh pasta or dessert pie using secret ingredients from a mystery box during a live cook-off at the ICCA Dubai. The prize? Certified culinary courses in cookery and patisserie worth Dh35,000.

To enter, submit a nice photo of your favourite fresh pasta or dessert pie dish, along with the recipe and a summary, plus a selfie with the dish. The best submissions will be shortlisted and invited to take part in the live cooking and baking showdown on Saturday November 21, wherein each finalist will be given a mystery box of ingredients with three hours to prepare the best dish from scratch. A panel of Dubai Knowledge Park, ICCA Dubai and celebrity judges will select a winner and runner up for both categories.

Registration on closes on Saturday, November 7
