Last May 3, 2019 at the 28th floor Kitchen Studio of the Makati Diamond Residences (MDR), little chefs-in-the-making got their hands busy at the Kids Kitchen Camp organized by the San Miguel Pure Foods (SMPF) Culinary Center in collaboration with Makati Diamond Residences.
On its 24th year, the annual activity of SMPF Culinary Center aims to instil love and appreciation for food and cooking while introducing various SMPF products that can help in preparation ease and enhance skills of young budding cooking enthusiasts. “If kids are much more involved in food preparation, then they truly get encouraged to eat more, which promotes good nutrition, plus they learn cooking early, a very important life skill” says Llena Tan-Arcenas, the Culinary Services Manager of San Miguel Pure Foods.
This year, our little chefs were taught how to prepare 5 scrumptious yet kid-friendly recipes such as Nachos Afritada using Purefoods Chicken Afritada and Magnolia Cheddar Cheese, Pulled Pork Tacos made from Purefoods Pulled Pork BBQ Pinoy Style and Magnolia Cheezee Squeeze, Quick Meaty Spaghetti using Dari Creme, Monterey Ground Pork, Purefoods Tender Juicy Hotdogs Jumbo and Magnolia Cheezee, Flower Pot Cakes made from Magnolia Devil’s Food Cake, La Pacita Graham Crackers, Magnolia Cream Cheese and Magnolia All Purpose Cream and the classic Chicken Tinola simplified by using Magnolia 3-way Chicken Ginger-Based. These recipes were enjoyed together with Magnolia Chocolait and La Pacita Oat Cookies served as snacks. The fun and talented chefs of SMPF Culinary Center under the supervision of Pamela ‘chef Pam’ Obieta together with MDR chefs conducted the event.
While the kids were busy, the parent bloggers were able to document the whole event and enjoyed snacks prepared by MDR, which included Arroz Caldo made from Magnolia 3-Way Chicken Ginger-Based and Chicken and Pulled Pork Pie using Magnolia Chicken and Purefoods Pulled Pork BBQ Pinoy Style.
