Jolly University Year 5 Grand Cook Off was a blast!

Lucky those students these days that they are able to share their talents when it comes to cooking. Show casing how they Innovate, Create and Share their culinary expertise. Truly, I witnessed how kitchen skills and creativity of all challengers were tested and how they bring out the best dish creations during the Jolly University Grand Cook Off.

Wherein, Jolly University (JU) is a program which began in 2013 which encourages diversity as well as the collaboration across and beyond academic borders while effectively transferring key skills to talented young students. Serving as a springboard to prepare aspirants in their future careers, the highly successful campus-wide competition nurtures cooperative relationships among students and institutions in promoting culinary excellence and food business innovation in the Philippines.

JU has grown to become a prestigious campus-wide cooking competition that is deeply committed in harnessing young students’ talent in cooking, pushing their creative boundaries.

Grand Champion: Lemuel Ty of University of Santo Tomas 

Grand Champion’s Winning entry: Hainanese Chicken Binakol Noodle Soup (mushroom & young corn stuffed chicken roulade with egg noodles, vegetables and coconut shreds in creamy coconut broth) 
 1st runner up: Richmond Joseph Suntay of University of Santo Tomas

2nd runner up: Patricia Ong of Chiang Kai Shek College

For Year 5, greater social media engagement was achieved via the Golden Ticket mechanics wherein two of the chosen top 20 JU finalists can advance immediately to the final round during the cook-off. The two contestants who automatically earned the final slots are Richmond Suntay of UST for whose dish photo garnered the Most Likes and Shares on FB and Ria Arugay of San Sebastian Recoletos for the Most Jolly Canned Vegetable Product Labels Collected.
