Who is the Top Anchor Home Chef? I found out...in a very yummy way!
I like this new phase. At the start, I found it very weird but now I find it fascinating! There's a whole wide world of fab events for wives and moms! And I don't need to put full-on makeup and blow dry my hair and wear excruciatingly high heels!
One such event I recently checked out was Anchor Home Chef Final Night. Yes, it was like a reality show that picked out the best recipes that reinvented ordinary food and used the Anchor product line. I didn't even know there was a contest like this! Had I known, I'd have totally joined! I'm kinda good in the kitchen so I think I have a fighting chance. Actually, I am very good in the kitchen. That's one of the reasons Vince married me!
I've known, used and loved Anchor butter for years and years. I remember my Mama singing the jingle when she'd serve sugar-sprinkled creamy butter on hot pan de sal for breakfast long, long ago. "Fresh Anchor butter!" I can hear her now and all I can think of is bright, happy mornings. Mama loved butter!
Anyway, the Anchor Home Chef campaign is all about promoting creativity in the kitchen. By using Anchor's premium products, men and women can create dishes using ordinary ingredients and make them ultra fabulous! I believe that, too!
Go! Jackie Go! and her baby Juro. He's busy munching on carrots. I don't know what my Iñigo was looking at. But this table was right beside the chefs' table so maybe Iñigo was looking at the chefs.
From left we have Chef Ryan, Chef Pauline, Chef Christa and Chef Jonas. They are very well spoken! Are all chefs required to be good at public speaking? Is that why they're so good when they get cooking shows? Actually, even all the women finalists, as they cooked their special re-invented recipes, described the procedures in an articulate, even entertaining way!
All summer, Anchor gathered recipes from home chefs using their Facebook page. The judges settled on six finalists. These finalists were visited by Chef Jonas at their own homes where they cooked their recipes in their own kitchens. Finally, last week, the finalists were presented to the media for the cook-off! These were the winning recipes:
And the winner is...
