Beginning with the first day of April, the Confucius Institute—which is the first of its kind to focus on Chinese food and beverage—is hosting a cooking competition. Titled the Chinese Flavors: Innovative Cooking Competition, individuals 18 years and older from all over the community are invited to create and submit original recipes by April 9.
The competition partners with Hong Kong based food company Lee Kum Kee. Famed for their sauces, Lee Kum Kee’s sponsorship of the competition requires contestants use one of their sauces in the original recipe. Other than the sauce, contestants are encouraged to get creative with their ingredients. If one’s recipe is chosen after submission, they will be invited to compete in the final competition on May 12.
