Meal recipe mixes are having their moment. And the McCormick Flavor Nation Festival on May 28, Sunday at the BGC Amphitheater is 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. The best part? Guests get to watch the chefs do the live cooking demo to show how easy it is to be replicated at home. Learn how to recreate chef Francis’ Curry Fried Chicken at 1pm, chef AJ’s Cajun Shrimp and Corn at 2pm, chef Mikel’s Kare-kare with Bagoong Glaze at 3pm, and chef Patrick’s Sloppy Joe Bao at 4pm.
Flavor Nation Festival will also be home to a curated selection of concessionaires (think: Wagyu beef from Primo Wagyu, flavorful pop from Ice Pops MNL, and good-for-you burgers from Down to Earth) to complement the mix of a delicious food culture and innovation being cultivated in the event—not to mention the cheerful melodies of Tandems ’91 and Jensen and the Flips.
Join us on May 28 from 11 am to 8 pm at the BGC Amphitheater as we celebrate food, music, and good times at the McCormick Flavor Nation Festival 2017. First 500 guests get to sample the dishes for free. This event is co-presented by F&B Report.
