Nasi Ulam from Penang Best (my team). Okay, since it’s from my team, allow me to elaborate a bit on our creation. We came out with a modernized Nasi Ulam wrapped in Chinese white cabbage, served with sweet curry prawns and starfruit. It’s a healthy dish, not too spicy which caters well for children, folks and caucasians. We incorporated starfruits in the curry to help promote our local fruit in cooking. The beautifully wrapped Nasi Ulam and ingredients used reflects the multiculturalism in Malaysia.

Simplest among all with no vegetable carvings coz we don’t know how to make one

The herbs used: kaffir leaves, lemongrass, bunga kantan, salted fish, dried shrimp, onions, cashew nuts, raisins

Waiting for results

Prize giving ceremony. In fact before the competition, we were told that there was no 1st, 2nd or 3rd place and everyone is a winner. That eased me alot. We were surprised to know that our team actually scored the highest! Congrats Penang Best *grins*
