Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Canadian cooking contest

Postby Belgian Pie » 20 Jun 2012, 16:16

The Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan is seeking volunteers to participate in a brief, simple and fun cooking competition as part of the Celebration Canada Press Conference to take place June 27 at 2-3pm. Here are the details:

Event: Celebration Canada Press Conference. The Press Conference will include a brief 20 min cooking demonstration and competition. A Canadian chef will demonstrate a Canadian dish, and the three couples competing in the event will have to replicate the dish, putting their own unique spin on the dish. A panel of judges will then select the winner. It is an event intended for fun, to showcase Canadian food, and to generate publicity for Celebration Canada June 30-July 1. There is no prize associated with this event.

Criteria: The volunteers must be couples where one partner is Canadian and one partner is Taiwanese. We are seeking three energetic couples who are outgoing, and willing to participate in a fun and simple cooking contest (20 mins) in front of the media. No cooking experience is required, amateurs only please!


So I got this e-mail for a Canadian cooking contest ... while I'm not Canadian nor is my partner ... I din't know Canadians had their own food ... well, apart from moose, no, not chocolatemoose :roflmao: and, they even have their own Canadian Chef?

Good Canadian cooking is basically just modern American or European style cooking using quality local ingredients. As you said, the local game meats form the basis of its identity, but there are also First People (PC Canadian term for natives) dishes, and French Canadian dishes. Then, there are quality local products such as wild salmon, arctic char, and maple syrup, plus the usual artisanal breads, cheeses etc.

Don't spoil his fun! Its not too often that a BELGIAN gets the chance to pooh-pooh another country's victuals. This is the country of mayo on chips and over-strong sickly shite beer, after all! Cut them some slack, poor bastards!
