“It was knowing how much Filipino cooks loved ginisa dishes and Asian stir-fry that gave us the idea for the Wok-a-Holic Kitchen Masters competition and we’re very happy with the way it turned out,” said Terry Sales, Marketing Manager of Electrolux Philippines.
“We not only gave Wok-a-holics a venue to display their cooking skills and their own homemade wok recipes, it also introduced more people to the wonders of wok cooking and allowed them to get to know Electrolux’ range of Gas and Electric Ranges, Hobs and Hoods that were especially designed with the Asian way of cooking in mind,” he noted.
