A Canadian Seafood Cooking Competition was hosted in five major Chinese cities (Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chongqing and Hong Kong) in 2007 by the Canadian Embassy and Consulates, with major sponsors such as Agriculture and Agri-food Canada, and the Underwater Harvesters Association. Leading chefs from each region were invited to participate and create dishes featuring one of following premium Canadian seafood products: geoduck, Atlantic lobster, snow crab, sablefish and scallops. Special events were hosted in each of the five cities where the participating chefs presented their dishes and the distinguished guests including media and food experts casted their votes for the best dishes. The winning recipes and chefs were featured in a special recipe booklet. The Government of Canada is pleased to share the award-winning recipes created with Geoduck from Canada.
