PANO - A cuisine contest with the participation of 9 teams of Central Highland ethnic minorities was held during the ongoing Culture and Sport Festival of Kon Tum Ethnic Minority Groups 2010 in Kon Tum City.
At the competition, the teams introduced their traditional and unique dishes, which they often cook in their traditional festivals, like rice harvesting and buffalo baiting.
The uniqueness of their traditional dishes rests on the ingredients, including herbs and spices, which come only from the Central Highland mountains and forests.
According to local officials, the traditional cuisines of Central Highland ethnic minorities could be a potential for local tourism development.
