Bangkok’s top culinary talent cooks off ‘Master Chef style’ to land job at Topgolf
Bangkok, April 28, 2022 – Topgolf Thailand recently organized a unique recruitment event for Bangkok’s top culinary talents: Topgolf Megacity – The Culinary Mission Marvelous. The event was held at Food Trust Bangkok, the space of the former legendary Bo. Lan restaurant. 40 Young chefs cooked off in a Master Chef-style competition. The ultimate prize? Land a job at sports and entertainment venue Topgolf Megacity.
After cooking their dish within 40 minutes, the chefs had to present their dish to an expert jury consisting of the Topgolf team and famous guest judges. These include Thitid Tassanakajohn, or Chef Ton, a Thai-born Michelin-starred chef; Ubolrat Chewteerapluk, known as Madame Tuang, celebrity chef, cooking instructor, and cookbook author; and Chef Dylan Jones, owner of Food Trust restaurant. Besides judging teamwork, technique, creativity and sustainability, the jury gave the highest marks for the most delicious creations.
The cook-off is part of Topgolf’s creative recruitment campaign. The company is looking for 400 talents to run Topgolf Megacity, Bangkok’s most exciting sports and entertainment venue that will open in the third quarter of this year. Beyond gameplay at the 102 hitting bays, Topgolf Megacity will feature Bangkok’s best sports bar, a world-first Topgolf rooftop bar, a family-friendly café, an outdoor restaurant serving Thai classics, and a wine and whiskey lounge.
