Getting creative in the kitchen

Getting creative in the kitchen

How do you feel about this story?


Unleashing one’s creativity in the kitchen is highly recommended as this enables one to experiment on what works and how to transform everyday dishes into interesting and extraordinary ones.

Food personality and well-known chef Niño Logarta encouraged mothers and wannabe cooks to play with their recipes, and to not be scared in experimenting in the kitchen when preparing dishes for their loved ones.

During the #FoodieMama webinar mounted by Malayan Insurance Co., Inc. through its We Women Program last May 14, Logarta taught attendee’s dishes that are easy to prepare and rehash to excite family members when eating together.

Logarta created Mediterranean and Mexican dishes during the webinar such as Beef Kofta, Birrias tacos with beef, Tomato Consommé, and Chicken Kebabs.

“Be creative,” he repeatedly coaxed the audience to create recipes that will suit their families’ palettes.

The webinar event was witnessed by more than a thousand participants from Zoom and streaming live on the WeWomen Facebook page, and is the fifth webinar conducted by the WeWomen Program of Malayan Insurance since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“That’s the most fun part of being a chef, playing around with your recipe. Make it your own. We can’t go out but it doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy proper food in the comforts of our own homes,” Logarta said.

It was also pointed out that kitchen accidents can also happen either in work or at home, which is why it is important for mother’s or foodies to be equipped with protection such as an insurance policy.

Kitchen fires from leaky butane tanks as well as cuts and burns while cooking can happen at any time be it in a place of business or in our very own homes.

The women present during the event was shown the benefits of Malayan Insurance’s Simply The Easiest Live Assistant (Stela) Solutions roster which provide protection for oneself, a family or even a woman’s business.

For instance, Stela Home offers a comprehensive home damage protection, Stela Family offers a comprehensive personal accident insurance as well as hospital benefits, among others, while the Stela Biz products offer help to one’s business by insuring the physical store as well as employees.
