The first annual "United Tastes of America – Asian Chef Challenge" will be launched in Shanghai from March 6-8, 2013 at the ZhongHua Culinary Center in Puxi Shanghai. 18 teams from across China will be invited to participate in this competition. 

This competition will be a joint effort by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and more than 15 U.S. agricultural producer associations to launch a series of annual chef competitions in East Asia that will feature healthy, American food ingredients and highlight creative skills demonstrated by high-level Asian chefs. The initial target markets are Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Taipei.
