A fellow mommy blogger, Karina Ramos of Digital Filipina, was proclaimed champion in the recently staged Samsung Digital Appliances Grand Cook Off held at the GalaStars Culinary School. She took home a brand new Samsung Inverter Refrigerator and P20,000.00.
Her winning dish was non other than Ginataang Manok – which I also love to eat. This viand reminds me so much of my grandma, who cooks deliciously.
Well, this was the second time for Samsung Electronics Philippines Corp. (SEPCO) to host a cook off that showcased local bloggers cooking skills through their signature Filipino dishes. This is Samsung’s way of recognizing Filipino cuisine’s richness and innovativeness, as well as the value of food in bringing the family together.
Adding to the excitement of the cook off were the Samsung Digital Appliances Brand Ambassadors who served as judges. They are the famed culinary star Chef Ernest Gala, the managing director of GalaStars Culinary School, Chef Rolando Laudico, commonly known as Chef Lau, is one of the most sought-after chefs in the country and his better half Chef Jacqueline Laudico, a true chocolatier with a gift for creating award winning desserts for Patisserie Filipino.
The judges agreed that Mommy Karina’s Ginataang Manok, had the best and most remarkable flavor, as well as perfect balance of creaminess and smokiness that they have not yet tasted from a traditional ginataan dish.
At the end of the day, Chef Lau, Chef Jac, and Chef Ernest are fulfilled as cooking mentors and as Samsung Digital Appliances Ambassadors. They witnessed how Samsung Digital Appliances are made to fit to every family perfectly, catering to and keeping up with the unique needs of diverse and ever-evolving Filipino homes. Truly, the Samsung Digital Appliances can be the reliable partner in creating and building a happier home – the extension of who we are.
