From UFS, we also had Chef Alan Wong of UFS Malaysia who showed us different ways to use the Knorr Salted Egg Powder and the Knorr Rock Sugar Honey Sauce. UFS Philippines Sous Chef Carlos “Pipo” Aluning elevated the humble squid ball into something you would be happy to serve for cocktails!
Here are pictures of some of the dishes that the creative chefs came up with. My only regret was that I was not able to try them all, although I did try my very best to eat them all!
To start, we had these Fried Squid Balls with Ginger Miso Glaze and Spicy Honey Glaze. Fooled ya? Yeah, me too. I thought it was a takoyaki… Who knew you could serve squid balls like this?
Here’s the sample size of Chef Alan Wong’s Curry-Salted Egg Veloute, presentation is gorgeous. It made me think of a nice terrarium, but it was yummmm!
This Five-Spice Pork Belly in Knorr Rock Sugar Honey Sauce Glaze, Orange and Fennel Scented Barley was also another crowd favorite.
Crabcake with Salted Egg Holladaise, Quail Egg, and Kamias Dressing. It looks beautiful, right? I was so sad I missed going back for this after going around taking pictures and trying all the other dishes. I’m a slow eater so, huhuhu…
You can also use Salted Egg in dessert! Here’s the Salted Egg Entremet – cultured butter almond cake, salted egg yolks mouse, and homemade caramel popcorn.
