In partnership with Ideal Gourmet Pasta, celebrity Chef Sau Del Rosario showcased two pasta dishes through a live cooking demo. His first dish, Squid Ink Pasta Coconut Prawn and Scallop,was a balance between sea saltiness and the sweetness of coconut. Then taking inspiration from his hometown, Pampanga, Chef Sau featured Penne Rigate Pasta with Sisig. This was an authentic spicy Kapampangan dish featuring pork’s meat and brain.
