Recommended Posts

Chefs, cooks, students and culinary enthusiasts of Philippine dishes are invited to participate in a Philippine culinary showdown. The Kulinarya: A Filipino Culinary Showdown is divided into two competition divisions: Professional and Amateur. The contest is open to Northern California residents at least 18 years of age. Professionals are those who have professional culinary training and/or have worked as a chef/cook in the food service industry while the Amateurs are self-taught home cooks and foodies who have passion for cooking Filipino dishes but have not been gainfully employed as chefs or cooks in the food service industry.

The competition will be staged in two rounds. Six semi-finalists in each division will be selected on August 15, 2010 at the SOMA Room, 2nd Floor, Metreon at Yerba Buena Gardens, Mission Street corner 4th Street in San Francisco as part of the annual Pistahan Festival. The final competition will be held on October 24, 2010 in celebration of the Filipino-American History Month at City View in the Metreon Center. Entries will be judged according to the following criteria: taste, creativity, and presentation. The grand winner of each category will receive a round trip ticket to the Philippines and a tour to Philippines culinary destinations, gift certificates and other prizes.

Interested participants are requested to submit their short bio-data/credentials and recipe of their entry dish no later than August 10, 2010 to the Philippine Tourism Office, Philippine Consulate General located at 447 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA 94108. Accompanying photos or videos of the preparation are strongly recommended. For more information and guidelines of the contest, please send an email to pdotsf@aol.com or call (415) 956-4060, or log on to www.experiencephilippines.org.

This project is organized by the Philippine Consulate General, the Department of Tourism, the Department of Trade and Industry, and the Philippine National Police, and with the support of Filipino American Arts Exposition.
