Electrolux Wok-A-Holics Challenge (Elimination Round)

Who would have thought I will be joining, much more winning, a cooking contest. The only viand I can cook nicely are beef steak, chicken curry and afritada, that's it! I joined Electrolux Wok-A-Holic Contest just for the fun of it. Most of my Mommy Academy friends will be joining so I decided to just go ahead with it. Originally, my partner should have been my husband, but as fate would have it, I ended up with Des (Ms. Lourdes Labii). Truly, nature has its own way of bringing people together. Des and I complement each other. She's soft spoken while I'm not, she's patient while I'm not, she cooks well while I don't, we both love to eat though.
This is our winning entry: J.LOU's BEEF STEAK with broccoli and asparagus
Des in action while I cheer for her (ha!ha!). I learned from this cook off challenge that I am good at assisting people!

I'm super proud of LOURDES!!! She's super patient with my non-stop talking and kakulitan.

The JUDGES: Headed by Chef Bruce Lim of Asian Food Channel.

Wok-a-holic was hosted by VJ Samantha of 96.3 Easy Rock.
