On October 13th QAIC had the pleasure of joining the DC Embassy Chef Challenge at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, representing Qatari cuisine alongside Chef Noof Al-Marri and her team from Qatar. As part of the International City Food Festival in DC, the Embassy Chef Challenge hosted chefs from all over the world to compete in a friendly culinary competition. The ticketed event allowed the public to taste the chef’s creations and vote for the ones they enjoyed the most. Chef Noof Al-Marri and her team delivered three traditional dishes and fiercely fought among 40 other top chefs from their respective countries.
Thank you to International City Food Festival and the DC Embassy Chef Challenge for inviting QAIC to join this year, and many thanks to Chef Noof Al-Marri and her team for representing QAIC and Qatar.
