The Emirates Culinary Guild launches new virtual cooking competition

The Emirates Culinary Guild has partnered with the USA Poultry and Egg Export Council for another Virtual Cooking Competition.

This time, pastry chefs, both professional and amateurs, are asked to produce the Best Sweet Creation with egg products from USA. For the second category, they are required to produce a dish with US Chicken, Turkey or/and US Egg Products.

Classes 3 and 4 are videos created either at home or in a professional kitchen. “I’m excited about the competition as we’ve included pastry chefs this time,” says Chef Uwe Micheel, President of the Emirates Culinary Guild and Culinary Adviser for Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Deira Creek.

“I do expect a great selection of amazing desserts. We know from our Salon Culinaire how many good pastry chefs we have in our region,” he adds.

Andy Cuthbert, chairman of the Emirates Culinary Guild and general manager for Jumeirah Creekside Hotel and Jumeirah Hospitality, Madinat Jumeirah Conferences & Events says, “After the great response from all over
the GCC in our previous competitions, I’m looking forward to some great work from our neighbouring countries again.”

He also highlighted the importance of teaching and supporting young chefs during this difficult period.

“The Emirates Culinary Guild is grateful to our partner, The US Poultry and Egg Export Council, for the ongoing support during our events,” Chef Micheel highlights, adding that he would be expecting breakfast dishes, not only fried or boiled eggs.

“We expect to see lots of traditional Poultry and Egg dishes. Wishing everyone lots of fun and good luck.”

The competition has launched and registration will be open until November 11, midnight. All videos will be posted on Emirates Culinary Guild’s YouTube Channel; the views and. likes of the public will be part of the judging criteria.
