Six Thai teams all set to bake up a pizza storm in embassy’s Tasty USA Day contest
Six teams from Thai cooking schools and pizza shops are set to roll up their sleeves and get baking in the Great American Pizza Competition to be held by the United States Embassy next Thursday (November 10).
In the final round, the competitors are required to make pizzas from ingredients imported from the US under the concepts of “Real California Pizza”, “Wow American Pizza”, and “Plant Forward Pizza”.
The contest, to be held at EmQuartier shopping mall, is part of the annual Tasty USA Day event organised by the US Embassy in Thailand and the US Department of Agriculture to promote American food products in Thailand.
The California Cheese Advisory Board, US Wheat Associates, the Washington Apple Commission, US Meat Export Federations, and Thai importers of American food products will participate in this year’s event.
US Ambassador Robert Godec and Agricultural Counsellor Kelly Stange presided over the opening of Tasty USA Day at Bangkok’s EmQuartier on Thursday. Also present were five renowned chefs and food gurus to serve as judges for the pizza-making contest. The fair celebrating American cuisine and food products at EmQuartier runs until November 13 from 11am to 10pm.
