Neaz Subhan is the Chutney competition convenor and he says 15 have made the shortlist while three competitors from the diaspora are to be selected to compete in the hope of upping the standard of the competition this year.
He disclosed that there will be only one Chutney competition this year and it is slated for Berbice as a National Chutney competition and Curry Festival. There will be no semi-finals but the final is slated for February 19 at the Albion Community Center Ground.
Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport, Dr Frank Anthony, said this year the committee has drafted Loaknauth Persaud, owner of King’s Jewellery World, to assist with co-ordinating the Curry Fest, which will feature persons cooking various kinds of curry as a family fun day out.
A professional chutney official from Trinidad, Rishi Guyadeen, will be here from February 8-10 to assist all the competitors with their technique and delivery. According to Subhan, some new ideas have been incorporated to add vitality to the contest.
The show will also feature Terry Gajraj and Rikki. There are five new faces among the competitors this year.
