Over 3,000 chefs working in resorts, hotels and restaurants across the island as well as from overseas participated in the competition in a wide range of categories in both live and static contests. Thirty-two international culinary judges from 14 countries were present to judge the various events while foreign contestants and teams from Abu Dhabi, Australia, India, Maldives and Philippines also took part.

Culinary presentations were judged on the basis of creativity, hygiene, taste, texture, flavour and appearance by a panel of reputed local and foreign judges who also took into account ingredients and sourcing, nutrition, and historical significance. Asia Leisure properties Taprobana, Wadduwa; The Habitat, Kosgoda and Shinagawa Beach, Balapitiya participated.
