New Tang Dynasty Television’s
4th International Chinese Culinary Competition
in Times Square Sep 22 and 23rd 2011

10 Year Anniversary Benefit Gala:
"Celebrating Chinese Culture and Freedom of the Press"
Sunday, September 25, 2011, 5:00pm to 9:30pm at Pier Sixty


New Tang Dynasty (NTD) Television’s 4th International Chinese Culinary Competition is a unique annual 2 day event which takes place in Times Square designed to showcase the skills and artistry of master chefs from around the world.  The event attracts over a half a million people a year and through NTD’s coverage will be broadcast to millions of people across Europe, North America and Asia via satellite, cable and the Internet.

More than 1,200 years ago, during the height of the Tang Dynasty in China, Chang’an was the ultimate destination of the Silk Road, blending cultural influences from all across the Middle East, Asia, and Europe.  Like New York City today, Chang’an was truly the capital of the world. As a stage for the competition, NTD will recreate this glory, transforming Times Square into the “kitchen stadium” of Chang-An city, the ancient Tang Dynasty capital of China.

With this grand vision, over 50 Top chefs from Asia, North America, and Europe will gather in Times Square to compete for the coveted Gold Medal title in one of five major categories of Szechuan, Shandong, Cantonese, Huaiyang and Northeastern Chinese cuisines.

Commencing at 9am each day, the competition will be divided into 8 rounds a day of between 45 minutes to an hour. In each round, 5 chefs will cook in spectacular open air mobile kitchens decked with ancient pagoda roofs in front of a live audience and TV crew.  

Alongside waiters donning specially designed traditional Chinese costumes, onsite emcees will introduce the chefs and provide colorful commentary throughout the competition, highlighting the exquisite culinary culture of traditional Chinese food and the health benefits of different ingredients. Referees will oversee the food preparation process and judges will select the finalists and winners.

Celebrity Cook Off And Emperor’s Feast in Times Square!  A “Celebrity Cook Off - Iron Chef Meets Iron Wok!” 15 minute quick fire round, separate from the main competition, will be at the end of each day at 7pm. Celebrities and celebrity chefs will be invited to showcase their best ‘Kung Pao Chicken’ type dish.  Special VIP patrons will be offered a unique chance to taste these creations as well as other special Chinese culinary delights prepared by select chefs in the same mobile pagoda roofed kitchens. An “Emperor’s Feast” in the middle of Times Square will no doubt be the talk of the town.

This event aims to revive traditional Chinese culinary culture, as the world’s best chefs compete for different prizes, including cash prizes of US$70,000. Since the date of the first competition in 2007, the event has grown into the premier global Chinese culinary competition.

The Times Square culinary competition will culminate on Sunday September 25th with NTD’s 10 Year Anniversary Benefit Gala—“The Emperor’s Banquet: Celebrating the Best of Chinese Cuisine, Culture and Freedom of the Press.”   

Winners will prepare a sumptuous 10 course banquet, featuring the best dishes of each of the 5 major Chinese cuisines for all special guests and patrons.   The Gala, which will take place at Pier Sixty will also host a reception, Han Couture fashion show, unique silent auction featuring Han Couture gold winner’s work of clothing,  Wushu swords, paintings from masters of the 19th &  20th century, jade collectables, jewelry etc…

New Tang Dynasty Television’s Annual Benefit Gala draws hundreds of esteemed guests from the business, diplomatic and cultural communities. With over 350 guests expected, the 2011 Emperor’s Banquet takes place Sunday, September 25, 5:00 pm, at Pier Sixty at Chelsea Piers.
