SOLANE - one of the leading LPG solutions brand - is taking its grandest culinary competition to Mindanao as it kicks off a series of regional cook-offs for the Solane Kitchen Hero Chefs Edition, the first ever cooking competition that aims to discover the next big name in the culinary world.
"Mindanao is home to some of the country's culinary treasures and the most talented chefs in the country," said Isla LPG Corp. CEO Ruben Domingo. "Through the Solane Kitchen Hero competition, we aim to recognize these chefs who are vital in bringing Filipino cuisine to the world stage. At the same time, we are on a quest to explore and highlight Filipino specialties that are unique to our provinces."
For this one of a kind cook-off, participants must be Filipino professional chefs with at least three years of kitchen experience gained locally or abroad and must be currently employed in a hotel, restaurant or any food service establishment.
It was based on the following criteria: 50 percent featured ingredients and 50 percent originality and creativity.
The culinary creations were judged by renowned chef and Solane Kitchen Hero ambassador Chef Sau del Rosario and competition director Nancy Reyes-Lumen.
