Solane, the country’s top LPG solutions provider, is giving a tasty opportunity to cooking moms, dads, kuyas, or ates, whose homemade dishes would give restaurants a run for their money: Join this year’s Cuisinera Challenge: 30 Minute Easy Recipe, a cooking contest for amateur cooks with a unique and original recipe.
The challenge is open to one representative of a Filipino family who has no credentials in professional cooking nor is practicing chef duties in commercial or industrial establishments. To join, submit your original recipe, a 50-word write-up why Solane is your favorite cooking gas, your receipt of a purchased Solane LPG tank or refill and other personal document requirements stated on www.solane.com.ph/whats-cooking/2014/06/cuisinera-challenge-solane-lpg. Mail the entries to Isla LPG Corporation, 14/F Citibank Center 8741 Paseo de Roxas, Makati City until July 25 to qualify.
Criteria for the paper screening are completeness of documents (30%), quality of answers in the essay questions and mandatory information (30%) and quality of photos of the recipe (40%).
Twenty-four contestants will then qualify for the next round—the Cook-off set on August 2 at The Cookery Place in Bonifacio Global City. During the Cook-off, each contestant should be able to cook the recipe within 30 minutes. Quantity must be good for four and plated for two. Criteria for the Cook-off round are dish preparation (20 points), originality and creativity (10 points), plating and presentation (30 points) and taste (40 points)
From the Cook-off, twelve finalists will be selected. The contestant whose recipe earns the highest score will win P30,000 cash tax free and a one-year supply of Solane LPG. The other 11 finalists will each receive P2,000 cash and a Solane gift pack. For more information on the mechanics, visit www.solane.com.ph or text the Solane Hatid Bahay Hotline at +63918 887 5555.
