Oro Plato Masa launches nationwide culinary competition


“To espouse a new culinary philosophy of progression that allows our student chefs to shine!” That is the aim of this CSR project initiated by Marissa Dames, president and COO of DTC Promos Inc. which was launched on September 17 at the Golden Phoenix Hotel in Manila, the official hotel for the competition.

Presented by SM Supermalls in cooperation with the Department of Education (Dep-Ed), Department of Tourism (DoT) through its Tourism Promotions Board, Unilever Food Solutions (UFS), Lenovo, and Masflex, the competition is open to all Filipino students who are at least 16 years old by September 1 and are currently enrolled in a cooking course/program of any school recognized by the Philippine government.

There will be two categories for this competition: the ulam (savory) category and the minatamis (dessert) category.

The contest mechanics are simple. Qualified students must form a team of two members from the same school or program and fill out the entry form downloaded from the Oro, Plato, Masa Facebook page.

Deadline for submission of entries is on January 15, 2020. Eighteen teams will be chosen and will be announced in the said Facebook page on January 30, 2020.

SM Supermalls will host the grand finals on February 22, 2020 at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall.
