Jakarta, October 4: Anirban Lahiri, Marcus Fraser, Thongchai Jaidee, Jamie Sadlowski, Danny Masrin and George Gandaranata faced a different challenge when they were put to the test in a cake decoration contest!
They exchanged golf gear for aprons at the official launch of the 2016 BNI Indonesian Masters presented by Zurich, which tees off at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club on Thursday.
They rolled up their sleeves and took a lesson in cake decoration from celebrity chef and TV personality Farah Quinn, who was also the judge of the contest. After putting their creativity skills to the test, local rising star Masrin was selected as the winner.
Speaking about the players’ culinary skills, Farah, who has created her own signature dish as part of the tournament’s culinary offering, said:
AN2I9776“I’m impressed! These guys have got the touch! Okay perhaps a bit too early for them to sell the golf clubs and take up life as a pastry-chef, but for professional sportmen, who don’t get to spend too much time in the kitchen, it was pretty good.”
“Actually it was just a lot of fun. There was clearly some healthy competition out there and some good banter among the players as they tried to outdo each other, and I think they enjoyed it,” said Quinn.
Thongchai, the only player to win three Asian Tour Order of Merit crowns, said:
“It was great. A bit different to what we usually get up to and the boys were all trying to out-do each other with some pretty creations, but it was good fun and nice to be able to show a different side to our personalities than what we can on a golf course.”
The BNI Indonesian Masters presented by Zurich promises visitors to the Royale Jakarta Golf Club four days of top quality action on course and a feast of entertainment for the whole family off it.
Spectators can look forward to a gastronomic feast complete with food trucks and stalls, offering a range of authentic Indonesian and International cuisine and other culinary delights.
TV personality, host and chef extraordinaire Farah Quinn will be looking to cook up a storm with her signature dish – Rose Tea Pudding with Vanilla Cream dish, made solely using home-grown Indonesian ingredients. Comprising Rose tea with ginger crust and vanilla seeds, it is billed as a ‘tribute to older times’ and will see a traditional long-forgotten recipe given a modern twist.
