Finally, the day I’ve waited for has arrived – Pensonic’s Chef‘s Like Cooking Class with Dato’ Chef Haji Ismail. It was an early morning call on a hot day but I arrived at West Boulevard, One City in excitement.
This is the first time Pensonic has a cook along with contest winners and Celebrity Chef DCH Ismail, but it’s the second consecutive year Pensonic is having the Chef’s Like Campaign Cooking Classes. The highlight of this year cooking class is the Grand Prize of “Raya-Merdeka Bring Chef Home” contest which ended on 18 July 2015. The winner of this contest gets to bring Celebrity Chef Dato’ Chef Haji Ismail home on Merdeka Eve 30 August 2015, and also win the whole range of Chef’s Like cooking appliances for his or her home.
The first series of the cooking tournament kick starts today in Kuala Lumpur before heading to other states in Malaysia as follows:
- Kota Bharu, Kelantan 14th August 2015
- Malacca 16th August 2015
- Kuching, Sarawak 23rd August 2015
- Penang 29th August 2015
Before the event begins, I had time to don on my apron and take some quick snapshots with my friends to partake in the Instagram contest. Also noticed on stage, DCH Ismail being interviewed on TV. Together with my team mate, I headed to my designated table to find ingredients and cooking utensils all prep up for us. We will be cooking one of Malaysia’s famous culinary delights the Rendang Ayam Merah with Pensonic Multi-cooker.
The event kick starts, with DCH Ismail demonstrating several of his famous dishes like Nasi Arab, Mee Lontong and Ikan Kukus. Following suit, it’s time for us to cook Rendang Ayam Merah under his advised. We were joined by Pensonic’s Managing Director Ms. Vincent Chew, Executive Director Mr. Nelson Chew, General Manager Mr. C.C. Lee, lovely Miss Chinese Cosmos Southeast Asia, Miss Gillian Hung and Pensonic Friends such as Amber Chia, Alan Yun, Sean Lee, Angel and Carrie Lee as well.
It was easy to cook the dish as DCH Ismail was good in giving us guidance throughout the entire cooking process. As a surprise gift to the winners, Pensonic announced that each team can bring home Pensonic Multi-cooker provided and resounding cheers can be heard amongst the crowd. The event ended with lucky draws and also announcement of Instagram winners. Here, I would like to congratulate fellow bloggers Sherry Go and Elana Khong for their extreme luck in being handpicked as winners individually. Hopefully, at the next Pensonic’s Chef‘s Like Cooking Class I get lucky too!
