My 2nd SM Master Chef Event

11:51:00 AM

Gladly I was invited again to witness another food magic of the SM Master Chefs.  It was in the same place in SM Clark, same event, same time, but this time it’s a different chef.  Yes, it is a different chef and different brand that will showcase their cuisine and menu.

For this leg of event the brand that was presented was the San Miguel Food products and the Chef that demonstrated the dish was none other than Chef Jonathan Chua who’s a graduate of Hotel Restaurant and Institutional Management in De La Salle College of St. Benilde.  He also has an Associate Degree for Culinary Arts and Baking and Pastry in California Culinary Academy, USA.  So basically Chef Chua is a top-notch chef.  At present he is the Product Applications Specialist in San Miguel Purefoods Culinary Center.

Chef Chua has prepared four dishes for us, the Chicken and Mushroom Baked Rice, Star Ranchero Rice, Cheesy Hotdog and Fries Sandwich Overload, and Peaches and Cream Caramel Trifle.  All of these were easily made and prepared, some of which doesn’t require much cooking but all of them are quite interesting to eat and it I could say that it is intended for the kids.  Kids will surely enjoy these menus.

Foods are really great and on these menus, Chef Chua showed that leftover’s are still edible we just need a little bit of magic and innovations.

SM Master Chef's Cooking Demo with Chef Sia

2:32:00 PM

I’m so delighted that I was able to attend one of the cooking demo of the SM Hypermarket Master Chef Marathon at SM Clark, Pampanga. Good thing that it’s just near. Aside from us bloggers who were invited to cover the event, HRM students from different colleges in Angeles City were also invited to watch and learn in the said event. Everyone was very eager to know and taste the recipe that is going to be cooked by one of the Chef.

The guest chef during that time was Chief John Paulo Sia, one of the known chefs in the metro. Chef Sia has worked for C2 Classic Cuisine, the Linden Suites and he has also set up his own catering business and is now the corporate sous chef for Unilever Foodsolutions. He has also been into a cooking show in one of the local TV Network.

When Chef Sia started his demo, most of us were so eager to see and know what he will be cooking for that day. He even asked anyone who would like to be part of the cooking demo as his assistant, more likely of a sous chef for a certain dish. One fortunate and brave guy took the apron and stand beside Chef Sia.

Chef Sia created two menu for the day but he has noticed that there so many students and spectators he decided to add one more to the list. The cuisines are Menudo Tapa's Version, Beef Adobo, and Beef and Mushroom in Oyster Sauce (I forgot what Chef Sia named this one). All of the ingredients came from SM Hypermarket so it would be much easier to look for the ingredients and of course to cook it as well. One of the main ingredients is the products of Knorr.

Some of the students were able to taste Chef Sia’s cuisines and as I see it they were all nodding their heads, perhaps they were agreeing with the great taste of the menu. Of course they are not the only ones who tasted the food but me and the rest of bloggers as well. The good part is that the three dishes were laid to us. Great! My favorite was the Beef and Mushroom in Oyster Sauce. The taste is very much enticing.

It was really great tasting those foods, wish to get a taste of the other chefs as well.

By the way this cooking event is part of the 10th Anniversary of SM Hypermarket.
