British Ambassador Asif Ahmad welcomed all the guest to his residence as they launch Kenwood–Create More in the Philippines last July 21, 2016 at the British Ambassador’s residence in North Forbes Park, Makati City.

The said event was graced by media friends and 4 top Culinary Schools in Metro Manila as they display their outstanding skills through their finished products using the multi-awarded Kenwood kitchen appliances.

The Event

During the event, Honorable Asif Ahmad showed his culinary skills through a cooking demo with Kenwood Development Chef Martin Johns. They’ve shown how fascinating and how easy it is to use Kenwood products.

I was thrilled to know that the Ambassador doesn’t outsource the food they eat. They have their in-house chef which if I’m not mistaken is also Chef Martin Johns who makes fusion of Filipino-British dishes. Two thumbs up!

Kenwood also partnered with Mini Cooper during this event. And what an awesome display of sturdiness when the Kenwood Mixer pulled the Mini Cooper. I’ve tried pushing a car in neutral gear and find it really heavy to push. What more for a small Kenwood mixer? I thought  it would just break easily but tadah! It pulled the car with 4 people inside it. It was amazing! It wouldn’t be possible if materials were of low quality.

The 4 Top Culinary Schools who participated in the event were all given a Kenwood appliance as a gift which they’ve already used to create their “oh so tempting” dishes.


The night was even more filled with excitement when the host started to raffle off the tickets we got during the registration. And guess who was the lucky one who was picked first! I shouted HERE when my name was called! I wanted to get a Kenwood appliance of course! Who wouldn’t want one! Such an amazing kitchen product that you can never resist. However, what I got was equally of great value! And I’m so excited to kick-start my journey!

Here’s my prize! I can’t believe I won! I’m always unlucky with raffles but this time, it isn’t the case! I WAS TOO LUCKY!😄

I’m excited to see Kenwood products in the market. I think one should never miss a good opportunity to elevate the standard of cooking. And I believe that Kenwood is a great product that you shouldn’t miss.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Ambassador Asif Ahmad, KenwoodPH, and Leira for the invite. I had a great evening during the launch. With sumptuous food, overflowing drinks, and lovely people around. I can never ask for more.

To my readers, I hope you enjoyed reading. I will be happy to hear your thoughts about the event. Have a great day!

  1. I enjoy good kitchen equipment as much as the next cook who loves to cook. I don’t think you need fancy equipment to make good food. Some equipment makes it easier, but you can make great things without them. Granted you can’t live without a sharp knief


  2. How fun to attend. My favorite was the mixer. Wow! I’ll be on the lookout for these products. I don’t like a lot of “gadgets” but I want the ones I use daily to be quality items.


  3. Kenwood makes amazing and reliable products and it’s nice that they’re introducing a new line as well! It would have been nice to be in that launch!


  4. I have never heard of this brand before but they look like they have so much to offer! I love the red colors of some of them.


    1. I’m looking forward with the pastry class. Been eating pastries but I didn’t know how to make it. We recently had a baking workshop which I also blogged, I enjoyed it. So, I’m kind of super excited for the class.


  5. I find Kenwood as a durable and dependable brand. And looks the event was a blast with all the yes- youve mentioned – sumptuous food, beautiful and nice peeps, and the winnings!


    1. It was a blast. Many won a prize from the event. I was drooling over the mixer prize. But, I got something that I have better use of. I would need to learn to really bake first before I can use a mixer. Lol!
