The event was a contest on steamed food organized by Flavours Magazine, in partnership with Miele Sdn Bhd.  The contest was open to the public. All can participate by preparing a dish of steamed food and sending a photo of the food you have prepared together with the recipe to Flavours Magazine. Miele Malaysia Sdn Bhd sponsored the grand prize which is the Vitasteam oven. 

The winners were announced in the October 2013 issue of The Flavours magazine. 

The prize presentation was held on the 22nd of February 2014 at The Miele Gallery in Menara Sapura Kencana at Petroleum Solaris, Dutamas, Kuala Lumpur. The steam cooking workshop for 8 persons was conducted by Malaysia's notable Chef Amy Beh.

My seven buddies and I had a wonderful time attending the cooking workshop with chef Amy Beh. It was fun and we got to sample and enjoyed the scrumptious food prepared and cooked by the celebrity chef, Amy Beh! 

The theme for the day was of course about steaming food! Chef Amy Beh and Alam Tham selected three dishes for the workshop. They were steamed chicken rice, an assortment of steamed vegetables, cawan mushi (Japanese steamed egg) and steamed chocolate lava cake. 

The steamed food were perfect! So delicious! You can taste the natural sweetness of the steamed vegetables. No sauce or condiment is required. And the vegetables still retained their vibrant colours and crunchiness! The chicken rice was very fragrant. Normally,  steamed chicken white meat can be tough. However, the plump chicken which was steamed using this Vitasteam oven was succulent. It was unlike those steamed by using a wok. The cawan mushi in the cups were steamed to perfection, silky smooth and very tasty.

The creme of the day was of course the dessert! The steamed chocolate lava cake was the favourite item that day. It was served with ice-cream! As we cut into the cake, the molten chocolate lava oozed out, mingling with the vanilla ice-cream.  It was a real treat! Truly sweet decadence for all of us!

We had a great time at the workshop. It was fun. Chef Amy Beh shared many tips as she demonstrated and explained the cooking processes step-by-step. Alan, being the marketing manager, he is,  won't miss the chance to sell the good points of the steam oven!

I will share with you the recipes which I had learnt during the workshop as well as my steamed cabbage rolls which won me the grand prize!  

Thank you, The Flavours magazine and Miele Sdn Bhd !!

    1. Hi Lena,

      If the price of the steam oven is at RM609-00 I would have bought it instead of cracking my head trying to conjure up different recipes to try to win the prize, which of course, I eventually did :D
