Cook Dali with Maggi Magic Sarap

I have not taken any formal culinary training, but my love and passion in cooking and creating wonderful dishes for my family started as early as when I was 10 years old (Some of my recipes and heirloom recipes can be found here at my Dreyfus Cuisine category). So, being invited to a cooking demonstration always excites me!

One Saturday, my husband and I attended the Maggi Cook Dali cooking seminar at the Julius Maggi Kitchen at Rockwell, Makati lead by Chef Eric Magtanong.

How could I possibly say no to something like this? Maggi has always been a part of my childhood. Even back in the days of beef bouillon cubes and their versatile seasoning. It has been a staple in our household for as long as I can remember. So, doing a Maggi activity such as this brought back lots of childhood kitchen memories for me.

To my surprise, it is not merely a cooking session, but there’s also a short but straightforward wellness and nutrition talk by Maggi’s resident nutritionist, Ms. Aleli.Maggi Magic Sarap-Maggi Cook Dali*Photo courtesy of Maggi Philippines.

Ms. Aleli pointed out 3 important factors on how to eat healthy:

1. Nutrition should enjoy good food, good life.
2. Moderation, Variety and Balance (MOVABA)
MOderation: neither in excess nor too little.
VAriety: No single food contains all nutrients. Variety on food preparation.
BAlance: Follows the proportion of food groups – Go, Grow and Glow

3. A healthy diet provides all essential nutrients.

Maggi promotes not only delicious cooking but health and wellness as well.

So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get our Maggi on and make some magic in the kitchen!
Maggi Magic Sarap-Maggi Cook DaliCooking hasn’t even begun yet, but the fun sure has with Vivian of The Soshal Network and Rina of Rina’s Rainbow monkeying around behind us!

Chef Eric prepared several Maggi Magic Sarap egg recipes that we will replicate using Maggi Magic Sarap. These egg recipes will make your mornings more eggziting and your breakfasts will never be boring again.Maggi Magic Sarap-Maggi Cook Dali

TRIVIA: I use Maggi Magic Sarap at home instead of salt. It enhances the flavor and it lessens my salt usage.

Starting off with the basic Maggi Magic Sarap Fried Eggs followed by Maggi Magic Sarap Scrambled Eggs that I made.

This was Chef Eric’s beautiful Maggi Magic Sarap Scrambled Eggs.

For the 4th egg recipe, Chef Eric taught us how to make a Maggi Magic Sarap Fritata. Fritata is like a Quiche without the crust.

Check out our Fritata after mixing all of the ingredients… almost there! Just waiting a few more minutes for it to be cooked.

And here’s my Maggi Magic Sarap Fritata using tinapa, salted duck egg, eggplant, garlic, tomatoes and onions!

For our last egg dish, Chef Eric made 2 kinds of Omelet: American and French Omelets

Both omelets however, have underdone centers with delicious creamy egg oozing out upon cutting it open. Both omelets are moist and slightly brown – just how I like it!

Of course, this cooking session wouldn’t be complete without us creating and presenting our own version. So… Viola! Our Maggi Magic Sarap French Omelet!
