June 29, 2012 Day 1
This year’s Electrolux Wok-A-Holic Kitchen Star Boot Camp kicked off yesterday at Waltermart Monuz with a series of activities, the contestants, bloggers and the audience enjoyed.
The event started by introducing the three celebrity chef mentors, Chef Bruce Lim (the Headmaster of the Boot Camp), Chef Rosebud Benitez and Chef Jonathan Bautista of CCA.
We also met the 14 aspiring chefs who went through a very rigorous selection process. We applaud them for going this far! They were not just passionate about cooking, they were also up to the challenge that they will be learning more culinary tips and tricks from the celebrity chefs.
Catherine Blas, Tara Cagadoc, Maria Cristina Castro, Maria Chelo Sobremisana, Belinda Custodio, John Mark Dalucio, Roland Jonas Ferrer, Richard Lucenada, Rommel Marcos, Rigette Osoteo, Rosarie Peñaflor, Mariela Salcedo, Lorenza Nerissa Sarza-Quintos, and Georgia Shirar.
….and guess what? each contender has a blogger for a partner who will help them campaign for the People’s Choice Award!
John Mark or JM Darlucio is a 25 year-old aspiring entrepreneur. He is a nurse by profession but is very passionate about cooking!

Let’s help JM reach his dream of being this year’s Wok-A-Holic Kitchen Star!
Day 1 was simply an immersion on how it’s going to be in the coming weeks. The celebrity chefs showed off and shared basic and advanced culinary techniques to the contenders, from identification of vegetables, various ways of cutting, sautee-ing techniques, and chicken de-boning among others.
The cool thing about this event is that, everyone, including the audience learned a lot of things from the celebrity chefs!
Who among them will win the Wok-a-Holic Kitchen Star title?
