Chinese New Year Dishes with Philips Airfryer

Mommy Jane's resolution for 2017 is for the family to stay healthy. A healthy family is a happy family. To start the initiative, we'll do some exercise in the morning especially on weekend, making our own bread using a bread maker as breakfast, getting some vitamins supplements and having a Airfryer to prepare a healthy meal for my Little Angels. To ensure the meals are healthy and delicious, Mommy Jane had attended a cooking workshop using a limited edition red colour Philips Airfryer (HD9623/31) with Chef Amy Beh and Philips Malaysia at Feves De Choco on last Saturday afternoon. 
Since Chinese New Year approaching soon, Philips Malaysia had collaborated with celebrity, Chef Amy Beh and Feminine magazine to introduce the healthier versions of several familiar traditional dishes made using the Philips Airfryer with new TurboStar technology. The 3 dishes which are the favourite amongst Chinese i.e. "Siew Yuk" and must to have dishes during the festival i.e. Prawns and Fish. Prawns signify happiness and Fish signify abundance.

"Chinese New Year is a time for families and friends to gather and spend quality time with each other, while wishing each other prosperity and a good year ahead. The annual Chinese New Year reunion dinner with its menu of traditional Chinese dishes is especially significant for all generations of the family. However, those that are health conscious may be concerned that traditional Chinese dishes are often saturated in oil and unhealthy fats," said Muhammad Ali Jaleel, Chief Executive Officer of Philips Group of Companies in Malaysia.
All participants had gathered together to learned the cooking skills from Chef Amy Beh using Philips Airfryer TurboStar to prepare a healthy meal for CNY celebration
"Philips is dedicated to improving people's lives through meaningful innovation, and this includes innovating convenient and time-saving appliances that help consumers prepare healthier meals. For Chinese New Year, we are collaborating with Chef Amy Beh to demonstrate how familiar Chinese dishes such a spring rolls and steamed chicken can be recreated with a healthier twist without compromising on taste using the Philips Airfryer equipped with new TurboStar technology."
Armed with TurboStar technology, the Philips Airfryer TurboStar is the latest in the Philips range of airfryers that helps consumers to eat food that is less oil but not the taste when cooking. Philips Airfryer can help us to prepare a complete and healthy Chinese New Year dinner from roasted pork to steamed chicken and spring rolls for this coming Year of Rooster.
After the speech from the representative from Philips Malaysia, Chef Amy Beh showed us on how to prepare and cook tong kwai flavour roasted pork, tamarind honey prawns and grilled spicy fish with wonder mushrooms. All these 3 dishes were Mommy Jane and Little Angels' favourite dish.
After the cooking demonstration session, all participants were given hands-on experience to prepare the 3 dishes and we had fun unbox the new Philips Airfryer Turbostar and start our cooking session. There are a total of 11 teams with 3 participants each that compete to be at the top 3 teams to make the most creative dishes. The top 3 teams will walk-away with Philips Airfryer Turbostar worth RM1,299 each. Wow...

Me, Ivy from Food Malaysia and Feminine Reader, Julia Chan had formed a team of 3 members to work together to prepare the 3 dishes. All of us had tried our best to be as creative as possible in the hope to bring home the Philips Airfryer. Our dishes as follows and we named our dishes as "Pork Pork Chui" for the "Siew Yuk", "Auspicious Flying Fish" for the Grilled Spicy Fish and "Asam Ha-Ha Prawn" for our Tamarind Honey Prawn. 
After almost an hour preparing the dishes, the top 3 teams were announced. Congrats to Betty, Isaac and another team because each of them can bring home the Philips Airfryer Turbostar home to prepare a healthy meal for their family. Even though Mommy Jane's team unable to be at the top 3 but Mommy Jane was lucky enough to win it through the lucky draw. Yeah...
