Jom Airfry Dan Menang Cooking Competition Grand Finale with Philips

Heartiest congratulations to all the winners of 'Jom Airfry dan Menang". The competition was organised by Institut Jantung Negara (IJN) and Philips Malaysia as part of their continued partnership for the FATCHECK For A Healthy Heart programme. FATCHECK is a community education programme set up to promote a low-fat, heart healthy diet and educate the public on the impact of high fat intake on heart disease risk. In the grand finale organised in partnership with AEON BiG, the five pairs of airfrying enthusiasts battled it out at Tropicana City Mall to win prizes totalling over RM35,000.

The Jom Airfry dan Menang competition was organised in support of the World Heart Federation’s annual World Heart Day celebration, which aims to increase awareness on cardiovascular diseases (CVD). In line with the World Heart Federation’s ‘Power Your Life’ campaign, Philips aims to encourage people to take personal responsibility for leading heart-healthy lives, starting by eating healthy. For the competition, participants in teams of two were required to submit low-fat recipes of heart-friendly meals made using an airfryer to be eligible. The finalist teams were then selected based on the healthfulness and presentation of their recipes, the creative usage of the airfryer as well as the amateur chefs’ own personal story using the airfryer

Prior to the grand finale cook-off, the final five teams attended a masterclass session where they had the opportunity to learn from Celebrity Chef Zamzani Wahab and Puan Mary Easaw, chief dietician from IJN, on cooking under pressure and recommended nutritional requirements respectively. The teams were able to apply their knowledge from the masterclass in the grand finale showdown. To add to the challenge faced by the finalists, the grand finale cook-off featured a mystery box which held a secret ingredient that had to be included in the final dish. In one hour, participants had to whip up a two-course meal for two consisting of a low-fat nutritious main course and a dessert using the Philips Airfryer.

The winning teams won the following:
