    This story, I bnelieve, deserves more detail. What did the winner create that was so innovative? What did the looser make that lost the competition? How about a video clip? Or a photo of the winning creation?

    As a culinary teacher here in the US unique combinations and flavors can be a winner anywhere!

    Thanks for the story!
