For the 9th straight year, COOK Magazine has been throwing a thanksgiving party for all our friends and supporters. This year, we’re going K-Pop! Quirky, fun-loving and full of energy, K-Pop or Korean pop culture has taken the world by storm.
At 19 years, COOK has been in the industry far longer than most. In fact, we’re the only monthly culinary magazine published now, a feat possible only through various supports. COOK’s 9th Holiday Bash has become an opportunity for its friends and advertisers to let loose a little, to bring out their fun and creative selves.
Certificates were awarded to COOK Magazine’s top advertisers:
- HÄFELE PHILIPPINES (BOSCH)
- SHARP PHILIPPINES CORPORATION
- F1 HOTEL MANILA
- EXCELLENCE APPLIANCES TECHNOLOGIES INC. (WHIRLPOOL & FUJIDENZO APPLIANCES)
- KING SUE
- MEGA GLOBAL CORPORATION (MEGA PRIME)
- HYUNDAI HOME APPLIANCES
- DERMALINE INC. (DIANA STALDER)
- RICHMONDE HOTELS
- PHOENIX PETROLEUM PHILIPPINES, INC. (PHOENIX SUPER LPG)
- HAVAS MEDIA (PHOENIX SUPER LPG)
Meanwhile, a Special Award was given to COOK’s Magazine Venue Partner HOUSE MANILA.
Some of COOK Magazine’s columnists were also on hand to receive their certificates of appreciation. Consultant and Chef Theodore “Day” Salonga, Chef Bruce Lim, Award-winning Baker Chef Gel Salonga-Datu, Recipe Developer and Consultant Chef Editha Singian, Baker and Instructor Chef Jojo Cuesta-Javier, Pastry Chef and Instructor Edward Mateo, Culture and Travel and Food Writer Roel Hoang Manipon and UK based travel writer and photographer Lisa Asuncion-Feliciano are the magazine’s regular columnists.
COOK Magazine’s yearly theme has become a costume event wherein guests who take the trouble to wear the prescribed attire get to walk the “runway” stage. This year’s theme is K-Pop.
Hundreds of raffle prizes such as appliances, hotel restaurant buffets and overnight stays at the country’s top hotels were given away. The grand prizes include a refrigerator from Whirpool, a stove from Tecnogas, a SHARP TV, and a 3-day, 2-night stay at Maribago Blue Water Hotel in Bohol complete with a round trip airfare for 2 pax from Cebu Pacific.
Perry Gamboa, Choi Soriano, and COOK Advertising Manager Marlon Aldenese hosted the event.
At COOK Magazine, the love for food has taken everywhere. This same passion for food is what they’d like to share with our most ardent supporters. And because food and dining is the crux of what COOK Magazine is all about, expectations are always high when COOK holds this bash that the food will be good and plentiful. Thanks be to the generosity of the sponsors and friends, whom made the feast possible:
