THERE’S a new wave of food entrepreneurs here in Malaysia – creative and enterprising young people who are breaking the F&B mould with their brilliant ideas.

We’ve seen home bakers selling their goods on Facebook, artisanal ice-cream makers coming up with quirky local flavours, food truckers who build a following (literally) on social media, and so much more.

And now, the R.AGE Food Fight is here to give them a huge boost, by giving them the chance to become Malaysia’s next food celebrity!

The winner of the competition will get a food column in The Star, his/her own online video series produced by R.AGE, and – wait for it – RM10,000 in cold hard cash. There are a few other product prizes, but you get the picture.

The five finalists will get a pretty sweet deal too. They’ll get masterclasses with some of the best in the business – Chef Wan, Le Cordon Bleu master chef Rodolphe Onno, Chef Darren Chin of the very swanky Restaurant DC, top food blogger KY Speaks and performing artiste/up-and-coming restaurateur Chef Liang.
