I'm so honored to be invited and to take part of McCormick's special event held at Maya Mexican Restaurant in Crossroads, Banilad last May 17, 2014 and was hosted by the energetic and good-looking, Mark Suntay.
There were a lot of guests invited like hotel and restaurant owners, purchasers, F&B managers, press people and food bloggers to be one of the first to get a hands-on experience with the new and improved online store.
It was an afternoon of education, inspiration and action.
McCormick invited a food stylist and a chef with over 20 years of experience in culinary who talked about Spice 101. She is no other than Chef Gigi Angkaw.
She educated everyone about the difference between spices and herbs, seeds, seasonings and condiments. She also talked about the shelf life of the spices and herbs and most of all, she provided everyone tips on how to store spices.
McCormick also invited another chef who inspired everyone by sharing his secrets to making food business a success. He is a native of New Zealand but has a heart of a Filipino. He is the Executive Chef of Maya Restaurant, Chef Wade Watsons.
According to Chef Wade, if you want your food business to succeed, you must have a strong heart and a "thick face". In short, you must be willing to take risks and the passion should always be there. You must not stop yourself from learning new things and always make it a point to taste, taste and taste the food that you are going to serve to give the best quality to all your customers.
The highlight of the program was lead by McCormick's Product Manager for Food Services, Kim Deunice R. Gillesania. She walked everyone through the online store and talked about how to save time and money by using this convenient and most efficient innovation. She talked about the convenience of providing quality products with just a click of a button.
Through the online store, you don't have to go to the hassle of going to the grocery store standing in line or sometimes you can't even find the spices and herbs that you are looking for at the groceries. This will really save you more time and money since the prices online are more cheaper compared to the stores and groceries since these are based on factory prices. What is even better is that you will get a P100 off from your online orders upon successful registration and wait there's more...for every P5,000 worth of purchases, the delivery is totally free.
To get the freshest herbs, spices and most especially to save time and money on shipping orders, visit the Online Store and make your business click. Part of the online store is the Chef's Corner where you can find cooking tips and mouth-watering recipes and other related articles. If you have any queries regarding your orders, you can click on the FAQs tab to get the answers.
