Rafael Salazar and Norberto Lamano, Jr. of Saint Mary’s College of Meycauayan are the grand champions of the SM Hypermarket Marilao’s Super Chefs Cook Like A Pro Cooking Contest held last October 30, 2009.
The winning team received P10,000 worth of SM Gift Certificate while the second place team from Dr. Yanga Colleges, Inc. got P5,000 worth of SM Gift Certificate.
The St. Mary’s team triumphed with their Young Corn with Bacon Bits in Coconut Coffee recipe. They won last October 28 at the daily elimination and won again last Oct. 29 in the weekly finals. The contest was held inside SM Hypermarket Marilao’s Community Corner.
Open to all male and female with a fetish for whipping up great recipes in an instant, each team had two members who were given 45 minutes to prepare a dish using Super Chef sponsors and a secret ingredient.
The contest began last October 21. The contestants were judged according to taste, presentation/plating, originality, use of secret ingredient, and use of budget that should not go over P250.
