Electrolux Wok-A-Holics (Semi Final Round)

Nothing beats the feeling of winning (especially when you least expect it!), all I wanted was the Electrolux Pop-up Toaster. Last August 14, we went very early at Mall of Asia to compete for the elimination round of Electrolux Wok-a-holics Challenge. Six tandems made it to the semis, then the next day...back at MOA for the semi-final round.


Photos before the contest started: with Ate Mimi, Star & Des
...and the countdown begins...
For the semis: Our team, Wonder Moms were head 0n with Ms. Mimi Salcedo and her neighbor.
Ummm, let's taste it first..

Des did the plating, the cooking, the thinking...I did...support her with all my heart (lol)

Tada!

Our winning recipe...Stir Fry Beef with water chestnuts, mushrooms and snow peas
1st Batch to compete for the semis: We won, yippeeee!!!
My partner,super posed!
2nd Batch: Ms. Honey's (2nd from left) team won

Third Batch: Gimikeras (in orange) won.
Gimikeras cried after being announced the winners. The judges had a hard time choosing because Ms. Emma's Team actually cooked so good too. I finished a big bowl of their rice dish.

Happy, it's so nice to be happy...after all the bloody brainstorming with our respective teams.

Chef Bruce...what more can I say, we're all afraid when he starts tasting our menu, but he's super nice after each cook off.
Tomorrow will be the finals...Whatever happens the 3 teams are already winners. Each member of the teams will get a gas range, the price will just vary, of course the Champions will get the most expensive range.
To those who wish to watch the finals, go at SM Makati. Our cook off will start at 3pm, but if you might want to win some prizes too, be there around 10am. Electrolux will have cooking show and raffle for the attendees.
