The ‘Taste of IBCF’ is coming soon (Saturday, November 5th @ 5pm) and we wanted to provide an update and reminder with some FAQ’s…
- How much food should I prepare?
We will be contacting all cooks via email about how much food they should prepare a week before the event. The reason why we’re selling tickets is so that we can have an accurate count to provide the cooks. However, they should keep in mind that each participant will only get a small “tasting” portion of each dish. Depending on the dish, each tasting portion is about 1/4 of a regular sized portion.
- If I cook something, will I have to buy a ticket?
- If I’m a youth volunteer, will I have to pay to eat?
No, but we’re only accepting 4 volunteers. So, make sure to sign up with Chau immediately!
- How will my food be served if it’s a blind tasting?
You will bring the food to Chau in the kitchen. She will need to know the name of your dish, then you dish will be assigned a number. When the food is served, the tasters will see the dish’s name and number. They will vote for whichever number they like best.
- What will be the judging criteria?
Taste and appearance! When you deliver your dishes, be sure to prepare a regular sized serving that we can display so that tasters can get the full affect prior to eating. Example, if your dish is a soup, then you can display a bowl of soup topped with green onions on the side that each taster can observe while picking up their soup samples.
