January-March 2019: VENUS MASTER CHEFS

To decrease the incidence of malnutrition among children five years old and below, the team spearheaded several activities in the barangay. One of these is Venus Master Chefs cooking show which showcased different nutritious recipes that are inexpensive and locally available in the barangay. This provided ideas to mothers with malnourished children on the different meal preparations they can use to help improve the nutritional status of their children.

The challenge was to prepare dishes good for 2-4persons which highlighted the use of locally harvested vegetables from the communal garden as the main ingredient. These dishes include the following:

• Appetizer
• EntrĂ©e/Main Course
• Dessert

Two (2) plates for each dish were prepared per team, one (1) of which was displayed while the other one (1) was served to the judges for tasting. All the dishes were plated individually for competition purposes.  A limited time of three (3) hours broken down into segments was allocated for the entire competition.

The contest was open to all residents of barangay Venus where there should be one team per purok composed of 2-4 members only. Ingredients in the cooking contest were taken from the vegetable garden per purok. All teams provided their own cooking utensils and materials.

At the same time, the malnourished children were invited for their first feeding day. Their mothers were also in the venue to know different meal preparations which are nutritious and inexpensive.

Purok Jupiter prepared macaroni soup, mani, ginataang gulay and fruit salad. Purok Mars cooked ginataang manok, pipino salad and mango float. For Purok Uranus, they managed to come up with Chopseuy and Ampalaya Salad.

Purok Uranus was awarded with the best appetizer, Purok Mars for best main dish and Purok Jupiter for the best dessert.

Purok Jupiter bagged the first prize of Php 500 for winning the first Venus Master Chefs in the barangay, followed by Purok Mars who received Php 300 and lastly Purok Uranus with Php 200 cash prize.
