Meet Knorr’s Newest Chef-Ambassadors

May 31, 2012 – It was a rainy afternoon when I went to Romulo Cafe in Makati City to meet the Knorr Chef Ambassadors. A cooking demo was conducted by the Filipino top-chefs who spilled out their expertise in making traditional Filipino dishes more innovative and modern.

The chefs, with the help of Knorr products help Filipinos to create special dishes that will go extra mile for their families. It was nice to know that all the recipes in the cooking demo can be easily cooked at home, making our usual “ulam” very special and more exciting.

The roster of Knorr’s chef ambassadors were Chefs Marvin Agustin, Tristan Encarnacion, Martin Jackain and Dianne dela Cruz, with the newest addition to Knorr’s list of chef-ambassadors – Joseph Patrick Anglo. He was one of the judges in the recent Junior Master Chef Philippines. Together, they are able to create unforgettable recipes that highlight what Knorr products can do for every dish.

The chefs prepared their signature recipes with the help of Knorr productsto bring out the best on each dish.

Chef Marvin shared his expertise in cooking with his Pinakbet ni Marvin. Chef Marvin made the traditional pinakbet special by topping it with lechon kawali/liempo, making a balanced combination of meat and vegetables.  The flavors of vegetables accentuated with shrimp paste became more brilliant after adding with Knorr Shrimp Cube. Most of the recipes are easily accessible making it really easy to do.

Another celebrity chef made his way on making a remix of the Sinigang and Bulalo recipe. Chef Tristan combined these two Filipino dishes in Sinigang na Bulalo. Sinigang and Bulalo are two of my favorite Filipino soups and I never thought I can have them in a single dish. The sour flavors of tamarind using the Knorr 2-in1 Sinigang sa Sampalok Mix neutralized the fatty taste of the broth.

Chef Dianne also made fish recipes delicious by teaching us on how to make a mouth-watering Escabeche recipe, a Filipino style of sweet and sour combining vinegar and sugar and blends the taste of ginger that makes it one of the favorite dishes of the Filipino families. Chef Dianne added Knorr Fish Broth Cube to enhance the flavor of Lapu-lapu and make it tastier that usual.

Chef Martin also showcased his mastery in cooking by preparing Organic Sagada Rice Paella With Seafoods, a rice dish full with exciting flavors of different seasonings and topped with the mixed flavors or the ocean. Aside from the different seafoods, this dish tasted perfect because Chef Martin used organic Sagada rice. His secret ingredients are the Knorr Chicken Cube and the Knorr Shrimp Cube.

Chef Jayps prepared his own version of ginataang kalabasa and made it more special with the help of Knorr Ginatang Mix, Knorr Chicken Cubes and Knorr Sinigang Mix. He upgraded it into Lechon Kawali with Rosted Pumpkin Gata. Everyone is familiar with this recipe but who would have thought of putting lechon kawali on it and making it a memorable recipe? Oh well, I just love the combination of the crispiness of lechon kawali and the creaminess of the coconut milk.

Momblogger Lea is Knorr’s ‘Souperstar’

What does it take to be a “Souperstar“? Lea, a wife and a busy mom to her family, exerts great effort to be creative in her cooking by experimenting on soup recipes. And with this, she depends on long-trusted brand Knorr.

A self-confessed “domesticated Carrie”, Lea has been sharing her experiences and hopefully soup recipes too (very soon) with busy moms like her through her blog,`She could use some interesting widgets though, her sidebars are too bare. 🙂

In one of her blog posts, Lea shows how you can come up with an alternative to fried chicken, the Chi-Ka-Knorr. On the other hand, there is the easy-to-prepare Knorr Chicken and Corn Real Chicken Soup for the rainy days.

She also showed how Knorr Cream of Mushroom Soup can be used for the kid’s favorite fried chicken.

So how did Lea became a “Souperstar?”

“Remember my best friend Kaye, the girl from Unilever whom I ran into at the grocery last week? I forgot to mention she also helped me out with this little online hobby of mine. She told the people at Knorr about my mention of their product on my blog (the Knorr Cream of Corn soup she enthusiastically endorsed), they saw it and offered to co-sponsor it! Hence the apt website name – Yay, thank you Knorr!”

In her blog introduction, “My late night chasing deadlines copywriting for ad agencies have now been replaced by keeping house and taking care of the two loves of my life…thanks to modern and my trusty laptop, I’m still managing to juggle a career as a freelance writer with being a pretty decent homemaker and part-time blogger. Who says you can’t have it all?”

Aside from helpful recipes, Lea also supplements her blog with photos of her cute kid, Gab, and her husband, J, and their food adventures for the day. You can follow Lea Souperstar on
