Charcuterie is essential when speaking on European culinary culture. The classic and crowning example of gastronomy, pâté croûte, or pâté-filled pastry, is one example of charcuterie that requires a chef to be highly skilled and have a strong sense. Participants are invited to the Asia Final to qualify for the World Championship.
Regarding the first screening, we will change it from the photo screening to the tasting screening. The Asia final might be held again this year at the French Ambassador's Residence on Wednesday, October 21st.
