Chef Boy Logro Judges Lady's Choice Real Chef Challenge Grand Finale
Unilever Food Solutions (UFS) recently held the grand finale of their culinary competition participated by chefs and cooks all over the Philippines which started way back July of this year dubbed as the Lady's Choice Real Chef Challenge where the finalists from both Salad & Sandwich combo and Hot Dish categories battled it out to impress the three designated judges led by CLICKS ( Chef Logro's Institute of Culinary and Kitchen Services) celebrity Chef Pablo "Boy" Logro with the owner and kitchen geek of Pino Kitchen Studio and Backyard MNL Chef Edward Bugia, and UFS Senior Sous Chef, Chef Brando Santos.
The top 25 finalists needed to creatively incorporate the usage of the mayonnaise of Lady's Choice in their food innovations or recipes. Some of the lucky attendees from the audience, including members of the media were able to taste the competing dishes and able to cast votes to determine who will be the People's Choice awardee. The judges, in turn, will determine who were the best for them based on the criteria for judging. I assumed both plating presentation and taste will be part of the judging aside form the innovative use of the Lady's Choice mayonnaise.
The two winners of the Lady's Choice Real Chef Challenge brought home Php 100, 000 each and exclusive TV features of their establishment and the winning dish.
Dimples Romana and Bettina Carlos where there to host the event, while UFS Executive Chef Joanne Lumonaco-Gendrano and UFS Channel Activation Manager Nicki David shared some information regarding the event. I also saw UFS Managing Director Colin Butler at the event but I had to leave early so I do not know if he gave a message or awarded the chosen winners. I will update this post when I get the list of winners. Below are some photos from the event.
