CookX Asia Studio’s maiden kitchen experience was recently officiated by brand ambassadors, Marina Mustafa and Joshua Benedict. Members of the media were treated to a special festive cooking workshop featuring Marina’s new Tuna Pasta Frittata Omelette, a simple, but hearty dish perfect to kick-start the holiday season.
Cooking up a Winter Storm this Festive Season
The Tuna Pasta Frittata Omelette also forms a key part of CookX Asia’s latest collaboration with The Food Merchants – Malaysia’s first international premium grocer– for CookX Asia’s Xmas Party Xpert campaign.
Just in time for the festive season, this campaign sees the introduction of 3 deliciously simple recipes for app users. Forming the X-mas Xpert Recipe Bundle, each of these recipes – which cover an appetiser, a main course, and a dessert in the form of Classic Fluffy Mashed Potatoes, Tuna Pasta Frittata Omelette, and Homemade Spiced Apple Crumble.
All the dishes were designed specially by Marina to be quick and simple with each consisting of just 5 ingredients (or less), with a prep time of 25 minutes.
“CookX Asia was created to make cooking more accessible for everyone, and that was what inspired me to come up with these recipes – because I wanted to show people that cooking is nothing to be intimidated by,” shared Marina Mustaffa, Brand Ambassador, CookX Asia, adding that the choice of 5 ingredients per recipe was intentional “Even simple ingredients are enough for a fancy meal, even for new chefs – you just need to be creative!”
Available for the month of December, these recipe bundles will be packed and sold via the CookX Asia app as pre-measured Eco-Packs, and packed and sold in-store as retail pack bundles by The Food Merchant. In the spirit of the season, the Christmas bundles are also decked out with festive seasonal packaging.
