“I personally feel that cooking is a basic life skill that everyone should learn. This skill is an amazing combination of art and science. Cooking helps you to attain qualities like confidence, creativity, good planning and organizational skills, and many more,”- Mr. Alpesh Lodha
“It was a nice experience to participate in NCC and being a winner. After winning this competition, i'm planning to do my career in cooking. It encouraged me to do something new. It gave me an opportunity for the first time to interact & compete with people from all over the country. It gave me confidence to try new recipes & participate in other competition related to cooking”- Santosh Sirvi
"The point of this competition is more than just to find the next young chef champion. This is also about promoting cooking as a life skill. Indian Children are intelligent but they lack life skills. Cooking is one of the basic life skills and yet they would rather live on fast food than learn how to cook. It is important to know how to survive and be healthy!,”- Said Chef Vernon Coelho
"Children today are extremely passionate about cooking. Cooking is all about a balance of flavours. A great chef finds the food he loves and puts the flavors together,"- Said Chef Vicky Ratnani
“This is a great initiative. It's good to see these youngsters take such interest in cooking. Cooking can be very therapeutic,”- Chef Salil Fadnis
