“At Kraft Heinz we are passionate about offering our customers the best quality products to improve their cooking experience. Made from real oysters, Heinz Oyster Sauce is the first Heinz product that has been created specifically for Thai customers. It’s admired by chefs and home cooking enthusiasts as an ingredient that can really enhance the flavor of their dishes. It’s the ultimate secret weapon that can turn a simple dish into a real masterpiece.” says Gabriel Melo
In January 2020, Kraft Heinz launched 'Artsy Dish Challenge’, an online campaign on its official Facebook page, inviting customers to create and decorate their favorite dishes using Heinz Oyster Sauce as a key ingredient. After careful screening by judges, there were 15 winners selected based on their artistic creations and description of their inspirations. They were rewarded with a one-of-a-kind experience to participate in an exclusive cooking workshop hosted by Chef Tam.
“It was an honour to be invited by Kraft Heinz to host this exciting and creative event. As an big fan of Heinz Oyster Sauce, it is a perfect choice for any cooking enthusiast and perfect for Thailand’s palate. It will not only make your dishes tastier, but the texture of the sauce will allow you to use your creativity to turn your everyday dishes into a masterpiece.” Chudaree added.
The exclusive workshop kicked off with excitement as Chef Tam greeted all participants and wowed the event with her cooking demonstration and decoration of three signature menus including Seafood Sweet Basil, Chicken with Cashew Nuts and Kale with Oyster Sauce.
Following the demonstration, 15 participants were divided into 3 groups. Each group was assigned to cook and decorate the selected dish by Chef Tam using their ultimate creativity to transform the menu into their most artistic creation, in which Chef Tam will taste and score each team by herself.
After a fun-filled, 2-hour cooking workshop, three winners were announced by Chef Tam and awarded with a very special gift by Kraft Heinz.
“Each participant is a true cooking lover. The winners have created the best flavor and artistic decorations using Heinz Oyster Sauce. Hopefully this experience will encourage all of them to have more fun and be more creative with their day to day cooking,” says Chudaree.
“We would like to thank Chef Tam for being an amazing host and showcasing her cooking and decorating skills for the participants, as well as being the judge of the workshop contest. Last but not least, we truly hope that our customers will be inspired by the art of cooking workshop and will continue to enjoy using our Heinz Oyster Sauce to transform their everyday dishes into masterpieces,” Gabriel concludes.
