Cooking up a storm

27 Jun 2019 / 11:01 H.

IN conjunction with the launch of Philips’ Premium All-In-One Multi Cooker and Airfyer XXL recently, Chef Marina Mustafa gave a cooking demonstration where she prepared five dishes, namely Lodeh, Seri Kaya Bakar, Lontong Daun Pisang, Rendang Tok and Ayam Percik.

She shared: “Cooking is my passion. Being able to share my favourite dishes with everyone is definitely heartwarming.”

After a brief introduction, she immediately put the Premium All-In-One Multi Cooker to work, fully utilising the intelligent cooking appliance.

Even with her knowledge of food, Chef Marina took advantage of the smart cooker, as it is smart enough to do all the cooking using any of its nine pre-set menus.

She also demonstrated Philips Airfryer XXL’s capabilities to prepare the dishes. As the brand’s largest and most powerful airfryer of its line, it has the size and power to cook a whole chicken, or quickly crisp up to two bags of fries in one sitting.

Chef Marina’s cooking session was like a rapid-fire cooking demonstration, where she prepared one dish after another with no pauses in between so that she could serve the food in time to the eagerly waiting audience.
