Chef Hasset Go Bloggers' Night at Il Mercanti, Metrowalk

Almost all of us were familiar with the saying, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. You see, if a girl wants to impress a man, would do everything to capture his attention and win his heart.. she must simply learn how to cook good FOOD! But for girls who loves to eat like me, I have to say that a way to a girl's heart is also through her stomach! That is the reason why ever since, I really admire guys who knows how to cook, and plus points if he is good in cooking delicious foods. So whenever I watch cooking demo shows on the television, I was easily delighted watching them toss and turn whatever yummy food they were cooking. Their hands were so graceful and foods turn into a work of art!

That is why when I was invited to an event last May 5 called Chef Hasset Go Bloggers Night: The Il Mercanti Experience at Il Mercanti Food Bazaar in Metrowalk, I was very delighted to go! I know I'll be witnessing a live cooking demo by an amazing chef- Chef Hasset Go. :)

The event was attended by bloggers, social media influencers, media, sponsors, as well as the friends and family of the young and multi-awarded chef and Sweets Master- Chef Hasset Go which marked the launching of Chef Hasset Go’s website,

 After the opening remarks by Ms. Analou de Castro, Marketing Manager of Il Mercanti Food Bazaar, one of the concessionaires of the food bazaar, Chef Nando of Los Hermanos cooked in front of us his famous Paella. It looks so yummy!! And the good part was that we got to taste it! What can I say, two thumbs up pati paa! Haha!

Foods were served  courtesy of the concessionaires of Il Mercanti Food Bazaar: Los Hermanos, Tita Carol, Philly Mignon, Cusina Marina, Macaros, Corndog, Pasta Boulivar, and Tess Ihaw.

For everyone's information, this 25 year-old Chef right here is very admirable!  Aside from his *ehem* good looks, Chef Hasset is a product of Heny Sison Culinary School, Owner of MedChef Homemade Cakes and Pastries, Co-owner of Desserts Strip of Chef Maribel in Cagayan De Oro, Chef Instructor of Culinary Institute of Cagayan de Oro, One of the chefs behind Chefs and Foodservice Community of the Philippines and Global Excellence and People's Choice Awardee as an Outstanding Young Chef by Asia Pacific Awards. 

Whew! That was a lot! At a very young age, he already achieved a lot of accomplishments :)

And then the most awaited part and the highlight of the event: The live demo cooking of Chef Hasset Go!

Next, Chef Hasset made a mouth-watering pastry tower topped with Puratos Carat Ganache!! Nomnomnom!! A group of two bloggers will have a chance to eat this and the group that will finish first will win! Of course, I cannot let this one pass. I have to taste it so I joined! Haha Although our group didn't win, I still feel like a winner because it's so yummeeehhh :)
