San Remo’s Cooking Demonstration “Raya with Pasta San Remo”

Every time when I go shopping with my mom, we often buy San Remo dry pasta because it is much healthier compared to the normal yellow noodles. 
San Remo dry pasta is a complex carbohydrate that contain vitamin B complex, iron, mineral, and fiber. San Remo pasta also has less salt and fat in it which means it is a much healthier choice of food for our family!

3 types of San Remo Pasta Sauces: Bolognese & Mushroom, Tomato & Basil, Tomato & Onion & Garlic
My family likes to cook pasta but unfortunately we always cook the pasta with the usual common Bolognese sauce or Carbonara sauce. Hence, we can’t eat it often as it may feel bored after eating the Bolognese and Carbonara spaghetti sauce too frequently.
 When my mom receive a media invitation from Acorn Communication to participate in their event San Remo’s Cooking Demonstration “Raya with San Remo Pasta”, I was elated as we will get to learn how to cook pasta in the Malaysian style!

As the month of thanksgiving and blessing for Muslims draws near, San Remo organized this event to reinvent the traditional pasta dishes with signature local spices to entice the taste buds of Malaysians during Ramadhan and Hari Raya Aidlfitri. Our top local chef, Collin Lim will be showing us how to cook pasta dishes that enriched with Malaysian flavours and ingredients in this San Remo’s Cooking Demonstration. 
Chef Collin presented two delicious and healthy localized pasta dishes which are San Remo Small Shell serve with Minced Meat and Spicy Peanut Gravy and San Remo Angel Hair in Curry Gravy. Chef Collin showed us how easy it is to prepare different types of pasta. He also matched each type of pasta with a blend of ingredients, fresh herbs and spices such as onion, red chillies, ginger, turmeric and lemongrass for aromatic goodness and rich flavours that everyone can make at home.

I ate the San Remo Angel Hair in Curry Gravy made by Chef Colin and it taste delicious! It has a thick aromatic smell! This San Remo Angel Hair is a very thin type of noodles blending well with curry gravy becoming a special curry mee with local flavors.  I can't believe that this can be made so effortlessly in just 20 minutes!

Following the cooking demonstration by Chef Collin, a cooking contest was held for the audience to try their hand at making their own Malaysian pasta dishes.
  We were divided into a group of 5. Every one is excited about this hands-on cookiing competition, busy wearing the apron given and putting the chef hat!
