A few months ago, I applied to host an André Rieu’s Week of the Waltz Party via Come Round and was lucky to be picked to host it. Last Tuesday, I received two parcels. Inside there were André Rieu masks, eye masks, pens, a poster, banner, snacks and along with three sample discs.
If you have followed me for a while, you may know that I follow Come Round and have applied to be their host. I am lucky to have been picked to host Philips PerfectCare Azur Iron party by Come Round. Do check out Come Round Facebook page for the next party!
Last month, I was lucky to be picked by Come Round to host a Philips beauty party with 9 of my friends. Philips had kindly sent me a Philips Lumea Precision Plus and a Philips Visapura for all of us to review. Rituals Cosmetics also sent us four of their products. Thanks to Come Round for organising yet another fantastic party!
Philips HomeCooker is like a slow cooker but with many other functions. It is able to simmer (90ºC), boil (110ºC), steam (130ºC), fry (175ºC), keep the food warm (70ºC) and melt (40ºC). The temperature setting (max 250ºC) can also be set to turbo to heat up ingredients quickly or to roast large amounts of ingredients.
Being Chinese, I always love to cook my own Chinese dishes. So I decided to cook fried rice using Philips HomeCooker with my own recipe. Firstly, I had cooked my rice using my rice cooker and set it aside to cool down. Make sure the stirrer attachment is in place in the pan, then set the temperature to 175°C. Once the pan has heated up, add oil, frozen mixed vegetables, frozen prawns, soya sauce and sesame oil. Set the timer for 15 minutes, so the food starts to cook. Reduce the temperature to 70°C and add the rice into the pot and let it stir for another 10 minutes. It was so delicious! We had finished it all too!
For my Philips Fresh Cooks Party, I had decided to cook crispy rosemary potatoes from Jamie’s HomeCooker recipes (Page 50) using my Philips HomeCooker.
