One of Shaggy’s biggest songs is ‘Strength of a woman’. It was so huge because it is a song that praises women and everything they are capable of doing including that women are better than men at cooking.
This was evident on Saturday when food enthusiasts thronged Jinja for an ultimate battle of the sexes to decide who can whip up a more scrumptious meal in an epic Tusker Lite cook-off dubbed Women Vs Men.
The outdoor friendly competition kicked off as early as midday and had the culinary skills of both men and women put to the test in a stimulating first edition held in Jinja’s at Pitstop Sports Bar and Restaurant.
The men and women who participated were tasked to creatively prepare different categories of local dishes and cuisines as they faced off in various competitions throughout the day.
By night fall, women had taken their rightful place on the throne as the ‘Kings’ of the kitchen and the reigning champions as they were announced the winners of the day. The winning chef was a local who prepares food at the local Jinja market and she could hardly contain her excitement at having nailed the right dishes with her “local touch”.
The judges came to the decision as they were impressed by the consistent cleanliness, creativity and deliciously prepared meal served by the female teams. The awarding ceremony had the overall winners handed various branded prizes by sponsors of the event.
The diners and guests were later treated to a full bar with good table service as well as games and music mixes by DJs as the partying continued late into the night.
