The awards for the Egg Class Competition and the Middle East Young Chef of the Year Award competitions were sponsored by the American Egg Board (AEB), the research, education and promotion arm of the U.S. egg industry.

John Howeth, AEB Senior Vice President, Market Development, said: “We're delighted to have been involved in the inaugural ExpoCulinaire exhibition and the sponsorship of the competitions not only provided the perfect platform to showcase the benefits of our products, but they also gave the talented young the chefs an opportunity to showcase their expertise and creativity.” 

The Egg Class Competition had five international and local chefs battle it out for the top spot. Mr. Jo Ingeun from South Korea, representing the Korean Cooking Art Academy, walked away with top honours, with the judges particularly by with Mr. Ingeun's dish U.S. poached egg set on a Focacia bread topped with turkey ham for its creativity and taste.
