What did you make for it?

Sample 1:-

Well, I have taken part in a variety of competitions such as painting, cycle race, writing at the fast speed and so on. But here I would like to talk about cooking competition in which I take part every year. In my village named “Malliana”, a cooking competition has been organizing by the youth club at the end of every year, in the month of December. I explain it briefly.

To be honest, I have great fond of cooking. When the leader of my village’s youth club organizes a cooking competition, then he informs all the villagers about this competition. Many women take part in it.

Last year, I had taken part in it. I did each and every preparation for this competition. The leader of the youth club had invited three retired teachers of my own village and gave them the duty of a judge of this cooking competition. Judges gave us one hour to cook the food.

On the day of the competition, I cooked Punjab’s traditional food named “Gajar Ka Halwa”. I did it quickly. Other women cooked a number of dishes to win this competition. After the time was up, the judges taste the food cooked by every lady.

At the end of the competition, they announced my name as a winner of this competition. I felt highly elated at that time. The judges congratulated me and gave me a medal. I thanked them a lot.

All in all, this competition will also organize by my village’s youth club in December. I shall take part in it and try to win it. I enjoy this competition.


Sample 2:-

Well, In this modern era, there are lots of competitions in every field. In my college time, there were lots of competitions held on the number of occasions. I always participated in the cooking competition and won many gold and silver medals. Now, I have completed my cooking course.

I want to participate in the National level cooking show named as Master Chef. Judges of Master Chef always inspire me. I am a huge fan of Chef Sanjiv Kapoor and Chef Ranveer Singh. If I will be selected for once in this show, I will do hard work and make delicious dishes that will definitely touch the judge’s heart. This competition has a number of phases.

Firstly, auditions are held in each state of our country, from where participants are selected on the basis of the dishes they make. And I already decided that I would make Idli Sambar with my special homemade tasks. I will surely be qualified 1st round.

After that, Mega auditions are organized in Mumbai where 20 dishes selected on the basis of 3 factors that are taste, look and twist. After that, the remaining 20 participants have competed for 2 months. At the end of every week, one participant will eliminate from the competition, which makes a bad dish. And in final, there would be 3 prizes or free internship for the winners

I am excited to participate in Master Chef. I want to win the 1st prize that’s why I work hard and I hope with God’s grace I will win this competition.
