The Grand Finale of the Mahou Maestra Chef Contest Season 2 took place in Delhi at Pullman, Aerocity on 8th June, 2019. The top four contestants of this season participated in a live cooking competition and the winner of the #MahouMaestraChefContest took home a refrigerator as the prize along with Mahou Merchandise. The runners up won microwave, air fryer and electric tandoor to prepare delicious tapas.
The competition was won by Goa-hailing media professional Aditi Malhotra on Saturday, who took the prize home by cooking Butter garlic prawns and beer battered onion rings. The event also witnessed the other three contestants — food blogger Bikash Biswas from Kolkata, Delhi-based IT professional Abhinav Singh, and cardiologist Nimrata Kaur — preparing the best of Spanish and Indian Tapas — small bites of food.
The main highlight of the contest was that participants had to cook using Mahou Maestra Wheat as an essential ingredient. During the 3 weeks contest, over 50 entries were received. The top 4 finalists were called to compete at the grand finale in New Delhi. The jury members were –
- Fernando Bustamante, CEO, Mahou India

“Mahou Maestra Chef Contest is a step further in our endeavour of bringing Spanish culture here in India – where beer isn’t just about consuming, but savouring it – paired with relevant gastronomic delights like Tapas. We are sure to make it bigger in the times to come.”
