I have always been researching and trying new recipes to include in my weekly menu plan for my family. After a hard day’s work and stressful day in school, I want to serve them something that they will enjoy eating at dinner and especially during weekends.
SM Hypermarket on its 10th Anniversary launched the SM Master Chefs Cooking Marathon. From July to September, every week in three months. SM Master Chefs will conduct a marathon of cooking demos that will tour SM Hypermarket Branches all over the nation, showcasing innovations in culinary products and cooking aids.
Being a cooking passionate, I took advantage to see one of their cooking demos held at the SM Hypermarket, Quirino Highway, Novaliches Branch. The cooking demo done by Master Chef Kai Verdadero-o was not only entertaining to onlookers but as well informed us of a new culinary discovery.

SM Hypermarket and the 19 master brands aim to bring innovative ideas, savor, add flavor and satisfy the Filipino’s love for eating. Together they launched SM Master Chefs, a composite event made up of three components – a grand cooking demo, kitchen makeovers and a set of cook-offs that are set to make foodie history.
I am very happy to learn 4 new recipes added to my menus. Chef Kai happily demonstrated how to cook Star Ranchero Rice, Chicken and Mushroom Baked Rice and how to make the delicious Peaches and Cream Caramel Trifle and the mouth watering Cheesy Hotdog and Fries Sandwich Overload.
