BM Albios eyes culinary arts contest to promote South Cotabato food tourism


South Cotabato Board Member Ellen Grace Albios said she is planning to hold a culinary arts contest among the local government units (LGUs) in the province as a way of promoting food tourism.

She made the statement as the province joins in the celebration of the 2021 National Nutrition Month this month with the theme “Malnutrisyon Patuloy Labanan – First 1,000 Days Tutukan.”

Albios said South Cotabato is a melting pot of people coming from different areas of the country, “that is why we have numerous food delicacies to offer to our visitors.

“This is actually a challenge to us and we left this to our tourism to hurdle the challenge, but sponsoring a province-wide contest is one way of helping promote food tourism in the province,” the official added.
