The contest was launched by US Blueberries – Vietnam, the Hanoi Communication Association, and Megalink Company on the TikTok platform on August 10, aiming to boost cultural and culinary exchange between Vietnam and the US.
The event encouraged professional chefs and food lovers to create recipes using US blueberries.
The organising board received nearly 200 clips from young chefs and food lovers. The entries were evaluated based on many criteria such as creativity, cooking techniques, setting of the videos, and interactions from viewers.
