For this edition, our chefs & shakers are going full Belgo-Filipino, where the traditional Filipino street food snacks & cocktail creations meet our gourmet Belgitude.
With the street food concept in mind, the chefs will create a dish with a perfect balance between savory & sweet and built only with Filipino influenced ingredients, and with "banana" as the main ingredient.
Shakers will create a cocktail based on Don Papa Baroko, no other rum should be used. Make sure the cocktail is made entirely with those delicious Filipino influenced ingredients.
The perfect mix and match and 100% Don Papa worthy: make it a Don Papa Rum tribute. Important is that the dish portrays a perfect harmony both in terms of taste and appearance:
- Tasting on the go.
- Important that both the dish and the cocktail can be consumed standing up.
- Supporting the dish through bowls - paper - trays - fork - spoon etc... consisting of recycled materials and/or biodegradable materials to be provided by the pairs as well as all necessary materials.
This year, the participants of Chefs & Shakers edition 2023 get to play with Don Papa Baroko.
