With the objective of promoting culinary excellence in the country, Tecnogas Philippines recently hosted its first-ever cooking competition entitled “Tecnogas Kitchen Superstar”. The live cook-off served as an exciting platform for food enthusiasts with no professional culinary experience to showcase their skills and love for cooking.
“For more than 65 years, Tecnogas has always been passionate about creating cooking appliances designed to deliver the best results. And through this event, we want to encourage and promote culinary excellence even more by letting them use the right equipment,” said JP Rahnema, Sales Manager of Tecnogas Philippines.
Being the first of its kind for Tecnogas, the fun-filled afternoon saw the attendees enjoying good food and winning exciting raffle prizes, aside from witnessing the main competition.


Tasked with creating an Italian pasta dish with a Filipino twist, judges Chef Charmaine Finder of TESDA, Mr. Marlon Aldenese of Cook Magazine, and Ms. Marilou Acuna of Flyace Corporation hailed Ida Tan-Schneider as the grand champion with her Creamy Smoked Salinas Pasta creation. Mariane Camba and Rholielyn Garcia bagged the first and second places, respectively.
As the first-ever Tecnogas Kitchen Superstar, Ms. Tan-Schnieder got to take home a P20,000 cash prize and over P100,000 worth of gift packs including a kitchen showcase from Tecnogas.
