The Great Muslim Cook-Off & Food Festival

The Great Muslim Cook Off Food Festival FlyerJoin us for St. Louis' 1st ever International Muslim Food Festival and Cook-Off at the World's Fair Pavilion in Forest Park. American Muslims are the most ethnically and culturally diverse community in America. That diversity is expressed through the thousands of unique food dishes cooked right here in St. Louis. This public event will have two main parts:

  1. Shopping at the International Bazaar: Area restaurants, local businesses, and non-profits will be selling delicious foods, clothing, henna art, and other unique items at the Bazaar. If you enjoy shopping, eating, and learning about others then this is an experience that you do not want to miss.

A panel of 5 judges will taste the dish in each catagory to determine the winner. If you're entering a dish into the competition you'll need to make 6 individual portions. Five portions are for the judges and one portion will be for the official photograph. Dishes must be submitted anytime between 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM. The award ceremony will be from 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM.
