New York Duck Curry Competition 2008

hold on to your misses.

The New York Duck Curry (Guyanese), Curry Duck (Trinidadian) Competition held on August 31, 2008 is considered to be one of the world’s largest gatherings of Caribbean cooking experts. At this annual event, Guyanese and Trinidadians from across North America compete to see who can cook the best Duck Curry.
The excellent weather encouraged Guyanese and Trinidadians to attend this event held at Floyd Benet Field, Brooklyn. This event was a slam-bra-dam-bam—success.

Navita and I visited all the boots, took lots of photos, and sampled various foods. Although this event is the Duck Curry/Curry Duck Competition, we found lots of chicken, pork, and goat—in the big pots sitting at the back of every boot.

There were two things that bothered us: Why was Canadian the 1st place winner when the event was named New York Duck Curry Completion, and why weren’t there enough parking spaces? After we put some thought into these two questions, we figured that the event is a North American event. The parking we still can’t understand that Brooklyn wasn’t prepared to host this event.
