Jongga Kimchi Cook Off Competition 2024


Le Cordon Bleu London is pleased to announce the launch of this year’s Kimchi Cook Off competition in partnership with Association Mes Amis (AMA) and global kimchi brand, Jongga.

For those passionate about cooking with kimchi or eager to explore culinary creativity, the Kimchi Cook Off presents an ideal platform to showcase your culinary prowess. Participants are tasked with crafting innovative recipes that celebrate the essence of this traditional Korean dish.

People have enjoyed kimchi in Korea for over 1000 years, and this versatile dish combines five key Korean flavours: sour, bitter, salty, sweet and spicy. The version of kimchi people may be most familiar with is made using cabbage, but there are over 20 types with ingredients varying to reflect the different tastes, seasons and regions of Korea. Kimchi can be combined into a huge range of dishes, so AMA and Le Cordon Bleu are challenging entrants to design a delicious and unique new kimchi dish.

Entering the competition is easy, entrants simply create their recipe, take a picture of the dish and submit the entry between May 16th and May 20th, 2024. Ten finalists will be chosen by a panel of judges, including Le Cordon Bleu master chefs, to take part in the final cook off which will take place at Le Cordon Bleu London on June 6th, 2024. A total of £10,000 in prizes is up for grabs for the winner and runners-up.
