The Alaska Seafood Challenge at Salon Culinaire
For the fourth year running, Alaska Seafood is supporting the world class culinary event, Salon Culinaire, at The Hospitality Show, NEC Birmingham. On Wednesday 23rd January, top UK chefs will cook with Alaska salmon as part of an Alaska Seafood recipe design competition.
During the challenge, eight accomplished chefs will have 30 minutes to create and present their chosen dish using Alaska Sockeye salmon. The cook-off will take place in the Live Theatre and industry experts will taste and consider each dish. The judges will be looking for innovative recipes using Alaska Sockeye salmon as an integral part of the dish.
The competition is a great opportunity for young chefs to showcase their culinary talents and is also a chance to educate up-and-coming chefs about the origins of Alaska Seafood and highlight the sustainability message.
Alaska is famous around the world for its wild and sustainable seafood. In fact, sustainability is so important to the State of Alaska it was written into the State Constitution in 1959, mandating that 'fish...be utilized, developed and maintained on the sustained yield principle'. The State's long-term involvement has ensured continuous, wild and healthy harvests for Alaskans and consumers around the world.
