CONGRATULATIONS to our Guam Representative in the World Chefs Gourmet Pacific Challenge in NZChefs National Salon 2016!!!
 
Chef Simplicio "JR" Taga garnered the 3rd place position competing in a field of seven chefs who were tasked to prepare a 3-course meal in this WACS (World Association of Chefs Societies) sanctioned event.
 
Chef Taga is the Vice-President of the Micronesian Chefs Association (MCA). He was accompanied by MCA President Peter Duenas who was there to attend a regional president's meeting.
 
Chef Taga's three courses shown in the collage were a Ravioli Starter, with a Chicken Ballantine Main, and a Salted Caramel Chocolate Mousse for Dessert. We are proud of our local chefs once again receiving international acclaim!
