Hi everyone! I recently had the amazing opportunity to be able to attend the media invite for the premiere of Season 3 of The Amazing Food Challenge: Fun in the Philippines.

The 13-episode series pits 12 contestants against each other in a series of vigorous cooking and physical challenges that include racing on traditional wooden bikes, crab fishing, harvesting ingredients for a cook-off and recreating fiesta dishes for up to 50 hungry townspeople - all for the prize of $30,000 and an all-expense paid trip around the Philippines.

Resident Judges Fernando Aracama and Rob Pengson, Scripps Network Interactive, Asia-Pacific Managing Director Derek Chang and host Celebrity Chef Aaron Craze
Produced by Asian Food Channel (AFC) in collaboration with the Department of Tourism and Tourism Promotions Board Philippines, The Amazing Food Challenge: Fun in the Philippines 3 is an action-packed culinary competition introducing the delicious dishes and beautiful rural landscape of the Philippines.

Palitaw - A sweet rice cake snack from the Philippines
We managed to catch a sneak-peek of several scenes of the show and it was amazing!
I've never watched the previous 2 seasons but it looks pretty fun, something like a cross between "The Amazing Race" and "MasterChef".

Yellow Fin Tuna Kinilaw - a easy-to-prepare raw seafood dish also popular in Philippines
During the media invite, we even had the chance to participate in a cook-off against each other, with judges Celebrity Chef Aaron Craze and the two resident judges from the show, Fernando Aracama and Rob Pengson. We got to prepare two delicious dishes from Philippines, the Yellow Fin Tuna Kinilaw and Palitaw. Hosting at the cooking school CulinaryOn, the cooking battle was pretty intense but so much fun!


Despite my best efforts, my team did not win, but it was an extremely fun experience nonetheless.

The Amazing Food Challenge: Fun in the Philippines premieres on Tuesday 22nd December at 9pm on Starhub Channel 435.
