An international event that traces its roots of ten years back to Bali, the MLA Black Box Challenge celebrated it's first decade in style with a Gala "cook-off" between Bali's leading young chefs at the Nikko Bali Resort and Spa on Thursday, October 26, 2007.

Unique in its concept and execution, the Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) competition presents teams of young chefs with "black boxes" containing select ingredients and then gives the teams 24 hours to devise a three-course menu for 20 people demonstrating creativity and originality in the use of the ingredients. This year's black box contained a range of fine products including salmon fillets from Norway, beef and lamb products from Australia, and fine cheeses.

Each participant in a cooking team had to be a local young professional with a minimum of 2 years and a maximum of 5 years kitchen experience. In all, some 50 young Indonesian chefs from the island's hotels and restaurants worked feverishly to dazzle the more than 300 sophisticated guests who attended the event. An international panel of top chefs flew in to serve as judges and select which team would win the right to represent Bali in a national final against the Jakarta Black Box winner and represent Indonesia at the International MLA Black Box Culinary Challenge to be held in 2007.
