Follow the Dragon - Pan-Asian Food Adventures at Home

It happens to all of us. We discover a new flavour or dish that we love, and it inspires us. We savour it and take photos of it. We learn how to pronounce its name so we can tell our friends about it and ask for it at restaurants. We’d love to recreate it at home if we weren’t so intimidated. We think to ourselves “Where do I even start?” or “I bet it's a lot of complicated steps” or “What if I don’t have the right ingredients?”

With Blue Dragon products you are closer to your Pan-Asian culinary quests than you think. Just follow the dragon and dishes that once seemed intimidating and exotic, are now as close as our kitchen pantry. And from the comfort of our homes, we are transported on food adventures, to create memories, connect with other cultures and with each other. We expand our horizons and our palates. We eat, we laugh, we share, and we raise our forks triumphantly to the sky to toast our mastery of our new favourite dish!

We are delighted to host a story concept contest in partnership with Blue Dragon. We want to hear your stories of your Pan-Asian food discovery and adventure. Has a Asian meal ever inspired you or brought you unexpected joy? Has a dish you prepared ever achieved the kind of unanimous approval that truly brought your family together? Have you ever healed heartache with a spicy Pad Thai, or recalled a fond memory from a late night Thai curry? Have you ever fed a little league army with a quick stir-fry, or welcomed the neighbours with a batch of spring rolls. Let the dragon guide you, and share with us your stories, for a chance to win one of 6 cash prizes, and a chance to see your story concept come to life on screen!

Blue Dragon. Let’s go on a taste adventure!

The exciting journey of Blue Dragon started in the UK back in the 70s, when there was nothing in British shops for re-creating Asian cuisine. The brand has grown since then and can be found all across the world. Today, we continue to travel even to the farthest corners of Asia, from Beijing to Bangkok, to bring home recipes and products that allow you to create showstopping dishes, that are simple enough to prepare every day. We at Blue Dragon are not only passionate about Asian food, but also about the high quality ingredients we put into our products. Most of our line has no artificial colours or flavours and over half of our products are non gmo verified.
