At The Great Adobo Cook-Off held at the Pioneer St. Market yesterday afternoon, nine (9) home cooks battled it out to prepare the best-tasting and most innovative preparation of our favorite Filipino dish. Rhealyn Montojo, a young student from STI College Alabang, was adjudged winner with her unique recipe that made use of lambanog in her final entry plus a few other new spices. She walked away with PhP50,000.00 in cash plus a complete set of kitchen equipments from Deli Chef. Judged by an esteemed panel headed by Adobo Queen Nancy Lumen and celebrity chef Yanna Asistio, the whole event was successfully staged under the organization of the tireless Dodj Mallari of HMR Philippines and Ada Milby of Deli Chef.
Special guests during the Cook-Off were Mister International Philippines 2015 Reniel Villareal, Mister Global Philippines 2015 Rick Kristoffer Palencia, Mister International 2013 Jose Anmer Paredes, Mister Tourism International Philippines 2015 Willan Pagayon, Manhunt International Philippines 2015 Don Mcgyver Cochico and Misters 2015 2nd Runner-Up AR de la Serna. Most of them were game enough to wear the Deli Chef kitchen aprons and assisted in the grilling of some kebabs plus serving the guests with the plated food tasting samplers.
It was clearly an appetizing activity that kept everyone’s attention in command. The mere aroma of all the different adobo versions that lingered in the air were enough to make everyone go hungry.
Thank you to HMR Philippines and Dodj Mallari, Deli Chef and Brand Manager Ada Milby and Pioneer St. Market for hosting the whole thing. 🙂
