Ako si Mrs. Domesticated…na hindi marunong magluto! When people ask me if I can cook, I always answer “Yes, pritong itlog.”
When I got an invite from Maggi to an intimate cooking workshop at the Julius Maggi Kitchen, I didn’t want to go kasi baka mapahiya lang ako. But this is Maggi! Eto ang brand na kinalakihan ko!
Over the years, Maggi has taught mothers how to cook up delicious and nutritious dishes. Remember, Tita Maggi?
Meet the next Tita Maggi.
The Maggi Cook Dali workshop started off with some nutrition tips from Ms. Aleli.
Maggi believes that healthy eating and maintaining a well-balanced diet are very important in keeping our body a wonderful “machine.” “Hindi lang masarap, dapat masustansya.”
We learned about the principles of health eating known as MOVABA.
Forget the all or nothing mind set. We should eat in moderation.
No single food contains all nutrients. There should be variety.
You can eat all kinds of food with proper balance.
After the talk, Ms. Aleli turned over the floor to Chef Eric.
Chef Eric first asked us to clear up our cooking stations, wash our hands and get ready to cook. Sobrang kaba ko to the point na I asked Chef Eric kung may parusa ba pag nagkamali! He was nice naman and assured us na walang eviction na magaganap. 😛
Chef Eric then told us that he will teach us to cook… Guess niyo kung ano?!?
Yahoo! Bilang “specialty” ko yan, this should be easy, diba? Well, let’s see!
First, we were asked to cook an egg the same way we cook it at home. Trixie, Rina and I were groupmates, and here’s our masterpiece:
We called it Pag-ib-EGG. Ang cute di ba?
Chef Eric then showed us the different ways of cooking egg. I didn’t know that that there are so many ways you can cook an egg.

Chef Eric also taught us how Maggi’s Magic Sarap can enhance the flavor of the egg as it cooks.
Maggi Magic Sarap can be a good alternative to salt. Using it makes every meal more delicious. It can be added to any dish for any time of the day. Sprinkling a bit of Maggi Magic Sarap on your egg can magically transform the taste of the egg by bringing out its flavor.
When we tasted our Pag-ib-EGG and the fried egg with Maggi Magic Sarap, the Maggi fried egg was indeed tastier and yummier! Sa dami ng natutunan ko, ngayon masasabi ko, with utmost truth and conviction, na kaya ko nang magluto ng itlog!

Thank you, Maggi for the wonderful experience. Thanks too for my new DuPont Teflon and Maggi goodies, I’m inspired to learn more!
The next time you buy a carton of eggs, try a different way to cook them, and let Maggi Magic Sarap help you make breakfasts and meals throughout the day more interesting. 🙂
