Meal recipe mixes are having their moment. And the McCormick Flavor Nation Festival last May 28, Sunday at the BGC Amphitheater was a good place to start, an annual food festival where aficionados and homemakers immerse themselves into a fun, friendly setting with great  food, music, and moments that capture the essence of McCormick’s meal recipe mixes.

Coming off last year’s success, the Flavor Nation Festival features Black Sheep’s Patrick Go, Locavore’s Mikel Zaguirre, Tipple and Slaw’s Francis Lim, and Privatus’ AJ Reyes, four of the best chefs in the business, who all created signature dishes using McCormick’s meal recipe mixes and seasoning blends as the base. 

Chef Patrick, for example, has whipped up an inspiring Sloppy Joe Bao using Chili Con Mix.  This is one of my favorite recipe. ^_^

Guests get to watch the chefs do the live cooking demo to show how easy it is to be replicated at home. 

Here are the yummy recipes, I am excited to recreate these using Mccormick seasonings.

Chef Francis’ Curry Fried Chicken

Chef AJ’s Cajun Shrimp and Corn

Tandems ’91 and Jensen and the Flips also performed live. The event was hosted by Radio Broadcaster, TV and Events host, Ms. Tracy Abad and Mr. Mark Andrew Suntay.
This event is co-presented by F&B Report.
