Chefs, are you ready to tear up the kitchen in the 2018 Vietnam Chef Talent Contest? Following great success in 2017, the second season of the Vietnam Chef Talent Contest gives chefs like you a chance to showcase your individual talents in a live cooking contest! You’ll get the chance to network with other chefs and discover new ideas – perhaps even business opportunities – along the way. Not to mention, win amazing prizes!
Before claiming the championship title, contestants have to undergo 3 rounds: Provincial, Regional and National.
In the Provincial Round, contestants have 45 minutes to come up with 2 dishes using the ingredients provided. This round takes place in 3 locations in north, 2 locations in central and 3 locations in south Vietnam.
