SM HYPERMARKET ADRIATICO is located near Harrison Plaza. Although not located in a prime area + a bad weather last July 26, 2011, it didn't stop hundreds of students to take part in SM Hypermarket Adriatico's Cooking Marathon together with its featured product for that day:  San Miguel -Magnolia.

It was amazing to see hundreds of people most especially students who took that Rainy Tuesday afternoon just to watch and learn about cooking that day. As I've said from my previous post I am actually a frustrated cook and foodie but still, the ever "curious and love for food" part of me said I had to catch this cooking demo with San Miguel as the featured products of the day.

For that day, 4 tummy-filling recipes were shared by Chef Jonathan Chua. Chef Jonathan was the Products applications Specialist for San Miguel Purefoods Culinary Center. He handles products such as Magnolia Dairy, Monterey Meats etc.

These are just among the many attendees that came for the cooking demo. If I'm not mistaken they are 200+ students because , the San Miguel team ran out of application forms for the San Miguel Great Food Club application forms they were giving away.

These were the featured items for the cooking demo. Just by looking on them makes me say "NomNom"!

There were 4 featured recipes for that day: Star Ranchero Rice, Cheesy Hotdog and Fries Sandwich Overload, Chicken and Mushroom Baked Rice and Peaches and Cream Caramel Trifle for dessert.


I will share with you guys this recipe which can be an alternative for fried rice. While the other recipes here will be featured in my other food blog, just click the link here if you want a copy of the other recipes.

Cheesy Hotdog and Fries Sandwich Overload

This recipe is is so easy to do. This is good to eat during merienda especially for those who always like to eat their sandwiches with fries.

Even my son liked it , he even urged me to have a souvenir photo with it first before having a feast!

Chicken and Mushroom Baked Rice

This is a good suggestion if you are on the look out for new recipes or dishes to bring during potluck or small gatherings and parties.

Peaches and Cream Caramel Trifle
This is the recipe for the day. Of course nothing tops a good meal with out the much awaited dessert. But be sure to take small servings first to savor it's yumminess!

Chef Jonathan got his help assembling this desert from a Hotel and Restaurant student. More pictures below:

This is the sugar for the caramel filling.

The peaches!
The Cream, mmm...

It was sight seeing a lot of students who patiently stay from start to end of the cooking demo. Rewarding as it is  because San Miguel even raffled items for the attendees to try at home.

This group of students even took the chance to have a photo-op with Chef Jonathan
If the students were lucky enough, I think much of a luck too, since I had a picture with Chef Jonathan as well.

 Thank you Chef Jonathan Chua!
