Event: #MothersBest's Cook Academy Asian Fusion Festival winners #CookMagazine #OurLadyOfFatimaUniversity

Mothers really know best in taste and in life. It was a feast of the eyes and palate witnessing the Mother's Best sponsoring the Cook Academy Asian Fusion Festival in cooperation with Cook Magazine at Our Lady of Fatima University last Thursday. Participants of the cookfest were from the College of Hospitality and Institutional Management (CHIM) of OLFU using any ingredient of the country's leading sauce and mixes company, Mothers Best. Cook Magazine's Editor-In-Chief Chef Dino Datu along with Chef Winston Jerome C. Luna, Caterer and Events Specialist shared their culinary expertise demonstrating their version of Asian Fusion Dishes - Black Pepper Crab, Singapore Chili Prawns and Easy Claypot Rice.
Chef Winston, owner of Chefwix Catering also cooked Oriental Wings with Chinese Greens followed by an engaging seminar on what it takes to succeed in the food business. Raffle prizes from MothersBest and Cook Magazine surprised the onlookers and participants hosted by Mr. Marlon Aldenese. Five teams of student chefs used Mother's Best Hot Sauce, Mother's Best Oyster Sauce and Mother's Best Barbecue Marinade. Team 4 with Cherry Ann Gorospe and Maripol Anog who cooked Bracing Pomelo Salad (Appetizer), Chicken Avocado Egg Rolls (Main Dish #1) and Baked Seafood Stuffed Avocado (Main Dish #2) emerged as the grand winner of the competition along with Team 5 as the first runner-up (Kimberly De Belen/Juan Paolo Ilagan), Team 3 as the 2nd runner-up (Mikaela Dela Rosa/Kent Edric Leander Asinas), Team 1 as the 3rd (Curt Austin Castro/Joshua Cuyugan) and Team 2 and the 4th runner-up (Mary Joy Borbe/Nino Christ Hagos).
The event gave more of the student-chefs and onlookers ideas on how to kick the dish up to the next level using Mother's Best products. It must've given more inspiration for the student-chefs of the country to continue exploring taste of our very own vegetables and meats better punctuated by Mother's Best sauces and mixes. Mother's really know best and that idea of glazing the pan with chorizo before cooking the chicken and rice gave me more dishes to explore for my own baon.
