Best of Pinoy Streetfood Cook-Off Grand Finals At SM Hypermarket

Last November 28, 2014, the finalists from the different SM Hypermarket branches compete for the Grand Finals of SM Hypermarket Best Pinoy Streetfood 2014. From the numerous contestants, only 10 made it to the finals which was held at the SM Hypermarket Cubao branch along EDSA.


The popular Chef Boy Logro of Kusina Master was one of the chef judges during the finals.


These are the finalists from different SM Hypermarket branches.


The 10 finalists are grouped into 5 pairs and was tasked to create a delicious meal of pancit. They were given an hour to shop and cook for about 100 pax. Only two groups will be selected from this elimination round who will vie for the grand finals. Goodluck guys!


They all had a blast shopping for ingredients inside SM Hypermarket Cubao. Each pair was assisted with Hypermarket staff so that getting the items off the shelves will be easier and faster.






At the counter, they're suppose to stay within their P1,000 budget.






And the cooking frenzy begins ...






















Aside from the chef judges, a group of culinary students and people from the audience (bloggers included) were tasked to have a bite (or two) of the pancit prepapred by the finalists. Each plate is color-coded. Afterwards, all the judges lined up on stage to drop their tokens on which pancit is the best for them.





































So who are the lucky ones who will vie for the title of "Best Pinoy Streetfood Chef?" Stay tuned.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen.
