Competitions will run every day as well at Treat 2013 with exciting prizes on offer. Speed of hand will be the deciding factor in the daily Minute to Win It competitions as guests try to outdo each other at common kitchen activities such as peeling oranges, or uncommon ones like showing their dexterity with chopsticks or sucking up M&Ms with straws – all in one minute. Noses and taste buds will be put to the test in another daily competition, Guess the Ingredient, where contestants will have to identify spices and condiments blindfolded.

Treat will conclude with the highly anticipated BurJuman Junior Chef 2013 competitionfrom May 19th – 25th.
