The 4th Golden Shah National Culinary Championship has been held within the International Food Industry Exhibition-InterFood Azerbaijan, Azernews reports.

The three-day championship is organised with the support of the State Tourism Agency and the Azerbaijan National Culinary Centre, a partnership between the World Association of Chefs' Societies (Wordlchefs) and the Azerbaijan Culinary Specialists Association (ACSA).

Over 170 local and more than 25 foreign chefs, both individually and as part of teams, participate in the championship, held since 2019, in various nominations.

The dishes prepared by the participants will be judged by a jury consisting of internationally certified judges representing more than 22 Worldchefs member countries.

The main goal of the championship is to promote the development of gastronomy in general, expand the potential of gastrotourism, give winners the opportunity to participate in international competitions, develop skills by learning the experience of world-famous chefs, study the methodology for preparing samples of our national cuisine by foreign chefs, and achieve the popularisation of our country as a gastrotourism destination.
