Two teams competed. Cristine Timbang and Maica Ramirez (Team A) prepared Chicken Garlic Parmesan Fettuccine while Nicole Andallo and Renel Aguilar (Team B), prepared Chicken Laksa. The teams were given just 40 minutes to prepare the dish using portable stovetops. Judges scored both teams based on several criteria including team efficiency, and the flavor, taste, and presentation of the dish.
The panel of judges was led by a professional chef, Jumil Dela Torre. After a careful deliberation, they awarded the tandem of Cristine and Maica the higher score.
“The dish was cooked in one pot, just to make it quick and easy,” said Cristine. “When I was studying, I need to find easy dishes that are easy to cook because we don’t have a lot of time,” said Maica.
“This is an opportunity for us to socialize in person as KADIWA members and as well as the whole local congregation and that way we can benefit from strengthening friendship, teamwork, communication skills, and more,” said Chenaur Valle, KADIWA congregation president.
“Young brethren who know how to cook can share their knowledge that will benefit them and others in the future, especially if they are living by themselves or even when they already have their own family,” said Brother Richard.
The brethren carefully observed the health and safety protocols while participating in the activity. ― With reports from INC News Section
