Taiwan chefs cooking contest promotes use of U.S. chicken products

To promote usage of U.S. chicken products in the food services industry in Taiwan, USAPEEC has been organizing a cooking contest with Taiwanese chefs in recent years. This year’s contest, titled, “2018 U.S. Chicken Creative & Healthy Brunch Cooking Contest” marked the 13th anniversary of the event, and was held in Taipei.

The idea of brunch as a healthy and sociable meal is growing in popularity in Taiwan, especially with younger consumers. A total of 33 teams of two chefs each from the local hotel and restaurant industry entered into the preliminary contest, where they were required to prepare a brunch menu using chicken meat from leg quarters or whole leg. Twelve teams were then selected for the final competition at HungKuo Delin University of Technology on November 15, 2018.
