Alas the search is over, Top 14 wokaholics was revealed and exposed to the kitchen hell's of celebrity chef mentors: Chef Bruce Lim, Chef Rosebud Benitez and Chef Jonathan Bautista of CCA. The top 14 finalists undergoes ala kitchen star boot camp and will have a fiery face-off via 3rd Wok-A-Holic cooking competition, a series of challenges will unleash the creativity, competitiveness and real culinary skills of these ordinary individuals. But this year, Electrolux came up with extra something to spiced up the kitchen arena - foodie bloggers will tag along and could ruin the situation :) (Yup! your guess is as good as mine dude). Seriously, Foodamn will take part as sous chef, the Top 14 has partnered with - - - well amazing 14 bloggers, you heard me right? I say, are we going to hack each other's kitchen area? :) Food blogging is kinda fun in the Philippines!
The winners will be announced during the Grand Cook Off at Cash and Carry Makati on July 7 and 8. At the end of the kitchen battle, only one will emerge as the Wok-A-Holic Kitchen Star taking home the grand prize of a culinary scholarship from CCA Manila, an Electrolux kitchen showcase and gifts from this year’s Wok-a-holic partners.

Finally, meet my Wok-A-Holic partner: Tara Cagadoc, a software developer and a mom of three whom she showered with good food while coding her programs. What do we have in common? Yes I'm a cute mom too! haha, you do the math. My presence are both in the kitchen (not as food critic or dishwasher!) so what's a blogger role? Food tester maybe :) As for the cooking part, I am an OC when it comes to kitchen preparation, cooking methods and the full works. I want a clean looking chop... but whatever my partner demands me, as long as I can - she can count on me.
