Alce Nero Blogger Cooking Event @ Food Playground


I spent my last Saturday morning at Food Playground learning how to create Italian Cuisine with an Asian Twist. 

Without further adieu, let's jump right in!

@ FOOD PLAYGROUND


Upon my arrival, at the entrance, I was greeted by Mr Daniel Tan, owner of the Food Playground and Alce Nero Organizer. They were so friendly and made me feel like I have known them for years. Then, I walked inside and I can't help being impressed by the grandeur of the Food Playground. So homely, fun and somewhat a place I'd like to hang out with my fellow food lovers to learn and create new dishes! This is also a place where you can make new friends, share and exchange ideas about cooking. 


12 bloggers were invited to attend to this cooking event. Each bloggers received a goodie bag filled with Alce Nero products. There were also 4 hampers for the most creative team. I'm sure y'all wanna know which team won, right? Well, Keep on reading Yo! He..he..he...


It is important that chefs wear hats while fighting in the kitchen. Agree?
Now, in Food Playground, we have to decorate our chef hat, wear it and Rock 'N' Roll!

Alrighty, let's jump into the kitchen and .... Waachaa!!

MASTER LESSON


These were the ingredients chosen to create Italian Cuisine with Asian Twist - Laksa Pesto Spaghetti and Home Made Pizza. I'll share both recipes in a separate posts soon. So keep checking back, Loves!


Instructor Noi demonstrated the art of working with the pizza dough. Note please, not kneading but working with the pizza dough. She shared some tips and tricks with us for making quick and easy homemade pizza.  I dread making pizza at home due to the time involved. Yeap, I'm a girl who loves to cook but I'm not a person who advocate time consuming and complex cooking methods. I just don't have the patience. I prefer to snore Muahahaha..... So now, there's no excuse for me not to make my own pizza at home. I'll share Noi's tips with y'all in a separate post soooooonnnnnnnn..... So keep checking back, Loves!

AWESOME TIME

We, the Chefs, were divided into 4 groups to WAACHAA in the kitchen. Ahem...actually, we were not really WAACHAA in the kitchen. We were just having fun! 
Evidence? See images below.....

SPECIAL THANKS TO 


Alce Nero was started in the 1970's, when two cooperatives of young Italian farmers decided to undertake a new type of activity: one that would produce wholesome food while respecting the environment. By combining old farming methods with the most advanced research on health and the environment, Alce Nero pioneered the organic revolution.

For more 30 years, it has been producing good, safe, fair and sustainable food. Today, Alce Nero is the leading brand in Italy, growing to become a trademark worldwide.
