SM Master Chef 2011 Program at SM Hypermarket Adriatico

Last August 16, 2011, I was able to attend the SM Marter Chef 2011 Program at SM Hypermarket Adriatico.  In case you don't know, the SM Hypermarket Adriatico is located just beside Harisson Plaza.  It used to be the old Jai-Alai Building.

I was surprised to see a lot of audience during the cook out.  Judging from their attire, they are culinary students from various schools. 

Chef Paulo Tamayo of C3 Events place demonstrated his culinary skills by creating two of his specialties using key product ingredients from CDO Foodsphere.

If you missed it, here are the recipes:

1. Heat peanut oil in a wok. Saute leeks and garlic. Add in tocino and mixed vegetables and stir fry for about 2 minutes. Add in rice. Mix until thoroughly combined. Season with chicken powder and oyster sauce.
2. Meanwhile, beat eggs and pour in the rice mixture and the leeks. Heat through and serve hot.
