What you need to know

Here are the key details.

  • Location: Cooking demonstrations will take place on a covered outdoor stage.
  • Equipment: The festival will provide a simple outdoor kitchen setup, and we'll share a list of the equipment provided to successful chefs. If your recipe requires unique or unusual equipment, you may be asked to bring it along.
  • Audience interaction: Demonstrations will occur in front of an engaged audience. We're particularly interested in chefs and cooks who have experience with demonstrating or teaching, or those who are confident public speakers.
  • Dive into the dish: We encourage our chefs to share the history and significance of their dish during the demonstration.

Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity to showcase your culinary skills and share your love for food with the festival attendees. Join us on the cooking stage and let your passion shine!
