Unilever Food Solutions stirring up great new 1-step products

Yours truly here is definitely one of those lazy cooks at home sometimes, and well, it is because of my busy life juggling work, events, motherhood and all.  Because of this I tend to rely a lot on 1-step products to help me whip up and simple yet delicious meal for the family.

The atmosphere and the guests

I was blessed to be included in the Unilever Food Solutions (UFS) invitation list to attend this prestigious dinner event  Unilever Food Solutions  'Stir Up a Wokful of Dishes' along with my blogger friend Ellie aka Cleffairy.

Some of the 1-step product being introduced...
Knorr Rock Sugar Honey Sauce

The normal, tedious old fashion way of doing things of making a Rock Sugar Honey Sauce....

The new innovative way ....
 The Knorr Golden Salted Egg Powder

The amount of eggs........

...all in on packet!!! Amazing huh!!
Knorr Mashed Potato

Would you like to peel all these potatoes , then boil it and mash it up.....

.... Or would you prefer to use this easy and simply way made with quality potatoes too....
 Knorr Lime Seasoning Powder
How would you like to squeeze all these lime......

...Or just use a teaspoon or two of this in your tom yum soup and any other items...

These lamb skewers were really to die for . It was made with Knorr Rock Sugar Honey Sauce!! One was just definitely NOT enough...

This Tuna roll was made from Knorr  mayonnaise. Just perfect....

Some of the absolutely irresistible canapes made from Knorr 1-step products... This dumpling was made with the Knorr Golden Salted Egg Powder and tasted like a dream....
Note: (my apologies) I did not get the exact name for the canapes.. but they were really lovely!!!

There were hundreds of chefs, guests and media at the event and everyone had a truly memorable evening enjoying canapes and also a sumptuous multi-course fine dining cooked with Knorr  range of 1-step products including the newly introduced Knorr range of Golden Salted Egg Powder and the Rock Sugar Honey Sauce.
