MEDIA personalities will be again putting their culinary skills to the test in the third Nationwide 90FM Cook-Off scheduled for company's Manning Hill headquarters on September 10-14.
It will be a battle for bragging rights. And, unlike previous years, this year's competition will be a team effort.
The team's are: Cliff Hughes and Ronald Mason; Emily Crooks and Ed Barnes; Chris Daley and Leighton Levy; and, Vernon Derby and Verene Shepherd.
Last year's tied winners were Cliff Hughes and Desmond McKenzie. However, Emily Crooks — the very first winner — is vowing to reclaim her title.
The main sponsors are already working with their chefs to plan their menus: HD Hopwood, Wray and Nephew, Dairy Industries, Grace Kennedy, Best Dressed Chicken, and Facey Commodity.
Nancy McLean, former hotel manager and food and beverage manager at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, is head judge.
