The Los Angeles Travel & Adventure Show, which will take place at the Long Beach Convention Center on Jan. 14-15, is spicing things up with its International Fiery Foods Challenge. The tasting invites guests to sample mouth-watering recipes from around the world. Guests can also participate in a high-stakes cooking competition and learn travel tips for foodies.

The International Fiery Foods Challenge on Jan. 14 brings together local chefs representing destinations found at the show and all dishes will have a spicy kick. Participating chefs include Kai Loebach of CurryWurst, Amir Thomas of Duo Dishes, SriAdriani “Jenny” Martono of Indonesia Tourism and Tracey Augustine of Cashmere Bites. After tasting, guests can vote for their favorites and take home the recipes to recreate them.

The Mark DeCarlo Interactive Cooking Class and Competition will follow the Fiery Foods Challenge, and the Culinary Stage will continue to feature good eats for Sunday’s show-goers as well. www.adventureexpo.com
