The K-Food World Festival: Preliminary Competition in New York
- Date: July 21st 2013, Sunday
- Time: 5 pm
- Venue: The International Culinary Center (founded as the French Culinary Institute)
The Korean Culture Service New York in congruence with the Consulate General of Korea in New York, sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Korea (MOFA) and Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (MBC), present the K-Food World Festival! This competition is an opportunity for those of non-Korean ethnic background who appreciate Korean cuisine and have a passion for cooking with a creative flair to demonstrate their culinary prowess! Though Korean cuisine is deeply embedded in tradition and boasts vibrant, strong flavors, it is still highly adaptable and chefs around the world have experimented with it and incorporate its flavors and techniques into their own dishes.
Contestants will first submit an application including an introduction video describing his/her background and passion for Korean food by July 12th. If selected, the contestant will compete in the Preliminary Competition in New York City, held on July 21 at the International Culinary Center in Manhattan. In this round, competitors must choose, cook, and present 1 Korean dish out of the 4 given base options—bibimbab, tteokbokki, bulgogi, and kimchi (freestyle)—and we highly welcome the contestant’s own personal touch to their signature dish! The preliminaries will be filmed by MBC.
The selected winner of the New York competition will receive:
- Roundtrip airfare to Korea
- Korean food tasting trip for 6 days (accommodation included)
- The winner of this New York competition will have a chance to compete in Korea for a chance to win a grand prize of US $10,000!
