Curry duck crews clash in Mayaro cookout
Hundreds of curry-mouth Trinis braved the rains to come out to the ultimate culinary experience at the Mayaro Recreational Ground last Monday, where the Digicel-sponsored 103FM Curry Duck competition took place.
It was a family affair where 20 teams vying for 13 prizes turned up to prove their culinary skills over their competitors who came from as far away as Guyana, to the ever-popular annual gastronomical event which draws massive crowds.
According to a release, this year’s competition included a new category—the Coconut Chutney Showdown—which proved very popular with the experts in East Indian cuisine and was won by Khchoor in D’ Chulha Crew.
Exciting the taste buds of the judges and copping the top prize for Best Curry Duck was Team Guyana, followed by Narine Doubles, Khchoor in D’ Chulha Crew and Eve Evolution Duck Crew.
Getting the judges’ nod and taking home the top prize for Best Pepper Roti was Khchoor in D’ Chulha who beat Lashing Lagoon Duck into second place.
The Duck & Dance Crew carried away the prize for Largest Cooking Posse with Trini Limers Crew beating the others as the team with the Best Vibe. Adding to the excitement of the day was a long line-up of popular artistes who kept the crowd on their feet well into the evening.
