The Mommy Chefs
HEAD COOK: Maridel Proserfina Pacleb
COMPETITION: Bacon World Championship
A single mother of 4 grown up children for 17 years, I learned to do a lot of things like cooking healthy and delicious meals. But my passion in cooking and getting creative started 7 years ago. I have no culinary training nor studies. I just learn to cook through online cooking videos and cooking shows. Baking is the first thing I learned to do. And joining and winning an online contest in 2012 made me realize that maybe I can try joining live cooking competition and be good at it. And after winning 2nd placer in my 1st nationwide cooking competition, I continued joining live competition since then. I became the 1st Solane Cuisinera Grand winner, 1st Best Modern Adobo winner by Food Magazine, Philips Kulinarya Grand winner to name a few, and proudly included in the final casting of the 1st Master Chef Asia. This June 2019, I will be competing for the Korean Fusion of the Global Taste of Korea 2019.
Winning is not my priority. Its the learning experience that I will treasure for the rest of my life. If given a chance for the World Food Championship, this will be the moment of my life that I will tap my shoulder and say to myself "Hey, you made yourself a legacy of your own.."
