My First Holiday Bash for 2014 with Cook Magazine

Cook Magazine celebrated its 4th Holiday Bash at the Infinity Ballroom of F1 Hotel Manila last November 25, 2014. It was my first time gracing a Cook Magazine event as I was really excited to find out what was in store for us that evening. Attending it was also my first Christmas Party for 2014.

Cook Magazine’s theme for this year’s Holiday Bash is “Frozen.”

F1 Hotel’s Infinity Ballroom was already packed when I arrived at about 7PM. The first thing I noticed was the overflowing food! I couldn’t figure out what food booth should I try first.

The COOK Holiday Bash is the magazine’s yearly celebration of thanksgiving to everyone who has supported the magazine for the previous years. Now in its 15th year of publication, COOK has an even bigger reason to celebrate as they welcome the opening of their Kitchen Studio.

COOK Magazine also awarded plaques to their advertisers, sponsors and columnists, and photographers for their loyal and continued support for the magazine. They are the people who make sure the magazine continues to produce relevant and interesting content. They are central to COOK’s tagline of “Connecting Foodies”.

Various Raffle Prizes were awarded to the attendees. The grand prizes were a refrigerator from Whirlpool, a top of the line Technogas stove from Italy, a multi functional vegetable food cutter by Berghoff Philippines,  and a Bosch Kitchen Machine by Hafele. I was one of the lucky ones to bring home a new American Heritage Blender! 🙂
