Do you, or have you ever wanted to cook Korean food? Think you are pretty good at it? Then this competition is for you!

The Embassy of Republic of Korea in London is announcing its first ever K-Food World Festival this July as part of a cooking competition organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, MBC, a national broadcaster of Korea and North Jeolla Province.

The winners from the qualifying rounds in 10 participating countries will go to Korea (all-inclusive) in order to participate in the final.
Here you will be able to experience Korean culture in full and of course, see how your cuisine matches up to real Korean food!

There is a cash prize equivalent of $10,000 (at current exchange rate at time of writing: £6,601.70) for the person that wins the Grand Final, taking place in Seoul!

Oh, and the final will also be broadcasted by MBC in September!
