Finally the search is over and the 14 aspiring chefs have been selected and revealed last Friday, June 29, 2012 in Waltermart, Muñoz, Quezon City, who will showcase their oozing talents in cooking for them to be hailed as Electrolux Wok-a-holic Kitchen Star.

To start with the cooking battle, there's a Culinary Boot Camp featuring celebrity chef mentors: Chef Bruce Lim, Chef Rosebud Benitex and Chef Jinathan Bautista of CCA. The top 14 namely - Catherine Blas, Tara Cagadoc, Maria Cristina Castro, Maria Chelo Sobremisana, Belinda Custodio, John Mark Dalucio, Roland Jonas Ferrer, Richard Lucenada, Rommel Marcos, Rigette Osoteo, Rosarie Peñaflor, Mariela Salcedo, Lorenza Nerissa Sarza-Quintos, and Georgia Shirar – has been trained in various cooking techniques during the Boot Camp last June 29 and 30. Lessons included everything from handling appliances and cookware to food preparation that I, yours truly, found it very informative and doable for our everyday cooking and eating lives. Well, I just love the “plating” part of the boot camp the most! Ha-ha.

I am also an aspiring chef I love to eat but I can’t cook well. Once in my life, I planned to enroll in a Culinary School but my schedule did not permit me to. However, when Electrolux Wok-a-holic challenge added a twist wherein they had an official Wok-a-holic blogger partners to help them to campaign for the People’s Choice Award, my heart beats faster than usual because we are also assigned to be our Kitchen Star’s assistant during the Grand Cook Off to beld at Cash and Carry Makati on July 7 and 8.
So guys, as I mentioned earlier I need to campaign for my Electrolux Wok-a-holic Kitchen Star partner, in order to do this, I need your support! Please vote/like Rigette Osoteo. For instructions, click here.
