Little chefs at the San Miguel Pure Foods Kid’s Kitchen Camp

Raix has always been fascinated with cooking. As a toddler I found it odd that he wants to play with her sisters’ old kitchen playset. He pretends to be a chef in a restaurant and loves to do cut and cook. I remember when he was 4 years old, I allowed him to help me bake his dad’s birthday cake. I can’t forget how happy he was especially when mixing the ingredients.

Last May 3, 2019, we were so happy to be part of the Kid’s Kitchen Camp held at the 28th floor Kitchen Studio of the Makati Diamond Residences. This was organized by the San Miguel Pure Foods (SMPF) Culinary Center in collaboration with Makati Diamond Residences.

On its 24″ year, the annual activity of SMPF Culinary Center aims to instill love and appreciation for food and cooking while introducing various SMPF products that can help in preparation ease and enhance skills of young budding cooking enthusiasts. “If kids are much more involved in food preparation, then they truly get encouraged to eat more, which promote: good nutrition, plus they learn cooking early, a very important life skill” says Llena Tan-Arcenas, the Culinary Services Manager of San Miguel Pure Foods.

This year, our little chefs were taught how to prepare 5 scrumptious yet kid-friendly recipes.

Nachos Afritada using Purefoods Chicken Afritada and Magnolia Cheddar Cheese
Pulled Pork Tacos made from Purefoods Pulled Pork BBQ Pinoy Style and Magnolia Cheezee Squeeze
Quick Meaty Spaghetti using Dari Creme, Monterey Ground Pork, Purefoods Tender Juicy Hotdogs Jumbo and Magnolia Cheezee
Flower Pot Cakes made from Magnolia Devil’s Food Cake, La Pacita Graham Crackers, Magnolia Cream Cheese and Magnolia All Purpose Cream
Classic Chicken Tinola simplified by using Magnolia 3-way Chicken Cinger-Based

The fun and talented chefs of SMPF Culinary Center under the supervision of Pamela ‘chef Pam‘ Obieta together with MDR chefs conducted the event.

Thank you so much to San Miguel Pure Foods Culinary Center for this wonderful cooking experience. My son can’t wait to try all the receipes at home.

  1. It’s always great when kids learn new things and cooking is a basic thing that all kids need to learn so they can feed themselves when they are grown.

    I’m glad Purefoods did a campaign like this.

    1. Agree. Nowadays kids need to be engaged to more physical activities. Just to keep them away from their gadgets. And have a fun summer experience. 🙂

  2. That was a nice Kitchen Camp. When my son was in toddler years, ang hilig din makijoin sa akin sa kitchen but now, depende na lang sa mood niya. hehehe!

    1. We actually bought some of the recipes, he wanted it to share with his siblings. And yes we will share it on our IG accounts. 🙂

  3. I think this is a good activity for the kids. This will help them appreciate hard work, and respect food preparation.
