Read this excerpt from the article in The Royal Gazette:
"The 31-year-old chef de partie beat out tough competition from three other culinary professionals with his melange of chicken dish. He won an all-expenses-paid trip to a New York butcher's, a crystal decanter, wines and a $350 gift certificate from International Imports. Mr. Ndungi said he was ecstatic after the win. "It feels like I just walked into a casino and won the jackpot, so I'm very happy about it." From day one of the competition, Mr. Ndungi was certain he would come out on top. He said: "I was confident with what I was going to do and took advantage of the fact that many of the competitors had parts of their dishes prepared in advance. I came up with a menu that would take me 25 minutes, but that I could create it all from scratch."
