LuLu invites both professional and aspiring Filipino chefs to showcase their best recipes as the region’s largest hypermarket chain is set to host the ‘Pinoy Master Kusinero’ during its Pagkaing Pinoy theme as part of the annual ‘World Food Festival’.

“As part of our World Food Festival, we aim to highlight cuisines from all parts of the world including the Philippines whose citizens are known as one of the most adventurous food lovers. We hope that Pagkaing Pinoy will be a platform not just for the innovative takes on classic Filipino food, but also to put the spotlight on the creativity of the Filipino chefs who will take part on this challenge,” said LuLu Group Director Salim M.A.

 

Apart from Pagkaing Pinoy, LuLu will also be hosting an array of global cuisines coming from over 25 countries, with more than 300 cooking competitions to take place across all major hypermarkets. Selected stores across the UAE will also see 20 live performances from celebrity chefs and personalities, alongside huge discounts on their products.

 

LuLu’s ‘World Food Festival’ hosts several other themes that feature cuisines from around the world including Akla Arabia featuring Arabic delights, Desi Dhaba and Malabar Thattukada with Indian favourites, street food staples, desserts, barbecue treats and so much more, targeting different nationalities and communities. Alongside the food themes, a host of different cooking competitions is being organised not just for homemakers, but also exclusive for males and kids.
