Korean BBQ Cook-Off Looking for LA Grill Masters
The Korean American Coalition of Los Angeles (KACLA) is holding its third annual Korean BBQ Cook-Off this year, and the search is on for L.A.’s finest grillers. Aspiring grill masters are invited to an open audition on Saturday, June 23 at 9 am to show off their BBQ prowess. Participants need not be professional chefs, but anybody with a passion for Korean BBQ is encouraged to apply.
Contestants should bring a pre-cooked Korean BBQ inspired dish (meat/protein), and a complementary side dish. The top 4 chefs will move on to compete at the official Cook-Off on August 6th, where dishes will be presented to an exciting panel of celebrity judges including Dexter actor C.S. Lee, TasteSpotting’s Sarah Gim, and James Kyson Lee (Heroes). The winner will not only be awarded a cash prize, but also the glory of the title of “Top Grill Master.”

In addition to a delicious free meal, volunteers will also go home with their very own Korean BBQ T-shirt. The deadline to apply as a volunteer is July 26, and the application is available online.
