The winners of the recent final held in New York were chef Benoît Chargy from the Waldorf Astoria Beijing and his young colleague Eric Brunner-Young. Their creation, the Jing Roll, will now be featured on the menu of all 25 Waldorf Astoria hotels worldwide, alongside the celery a-la Waldorf risotto, winner from last year, as well as the globally renowned Eggs Benedict, Red Velvet Cake, and Waldorf Salad, all originally created in the kitchen of the New York Waldorf Astoria hotel.
