Professional cooks can show off their culinary skills at the Makro HoReCa Challenge 2013 and win a share of prizes worth a million baht.
Organised by Makro, the country's first and leading cash and carry operator, the contest is open to talented chefs from any hotel, restaurant or catering service in Thailand.
Reflecting the diversity of influences in the Thai dining landscape, this year's culinary competition features three categories - Thai cuisine, international cuisine and Asean cuisine.
The regional rounds will take place at six participating Makro stores in each region, starting from June 28 in Udon Thani, July 13 in Surat Thani, July 20 in Pattaya (Chon Buri), Aug 17 in Chiang Mai, Aug 21 in Hua Hin (Prachuap Khiri Khan), and Aug 31 in Bangkok.
Each contest will be judged by a panel of local and national food experts.
The winning regional contestants from the three categories will go to Bangkok for a final cook-off at the "8th Makro HoReCa 2013" expo, which will take place at Impact Exhibition Hall 2-3, Muang Thong Thani, from Oct 31 to Nov 3.
The top national contestant in each category will win 100,000 baht.
In addition, the one with the overall top score will receive a trophy from HRH Princess Soamsawali and represent the country in the "Food&Hotel Asia 2014 (FHA 2014)" cooking competition in Singapore.
Applications can be made at any of Makro's 60 outlets nationwide before June 15.
