WOFEX 2013, The Ultimate World Food Expo


   Now on its 13th year of international expo on worldwide food and beverages, technologies and machineries, World Food Expo other wise known as WOFEX 2013, will gather once again culinary experts, food traders and connoisseurs on July 31 to August 3, 2013.
   Being the country's biggest food event and trade show they will again be housed under two venues- SMX Convention Center and World Trade Center.  This is the only show in the country occupying the two biggest event venues, and have been doing so for four years already, which covers both trade and retail exhibits.         Tickets will be sold and can be used in both venues for a day.  To make it easier for the guests and exhibitors, they have managed to provide a shuttle, for both the venues.
Tickets  by the way is only Php 150.

   For an unapologetic foodie like me, events like this is  a  must-visit.  It's a self a-vowed route to feed my insatiable craving for culinary knowledge.

   So, what's the fuzz and buzz about it anyway?  Not only can you get to sample a variety of new products even from other countries, you also get to see how new innovations work through demos.  If you are game for some exciting competitions, you can witness or be a part of the Philippine Culinary Cup.  Since WOFEX is endorsed by the World Association of Chefs Societies (WACS) every competition is a ground for training top-chefs of our country and prepare them to a more prestigious culinary meet across the globe.

   Every year, the people behind the organization of WOFEX - PEPGroup, Inc, plans to better themselves by furnishing more value to the exposition, by continuing to innovate and adding more activities for the public. One fine example that will also be highlighted is WOFEX University.
   At WOFEX University, excellent opportunities on trends and techniques learned in formal schooling are being offered and will be demo-ed by top-notched personalities in the culinary arena.   For schedules and topics on the seminars, log on to  www.wofex.com.

   Another great treat for the dessert-lovers is the seminar dubbed as 4P's and a Pastry.
   The four P's of Pastry Alliance, namely, Chef Penk Ching, Chef Peachy Juban, Chef Pixie Sevilla-Santos, Chef Jackie Ang-Po, gear up in unison as they promise to do a fun and informative pastry demo talk. Famed as The Divas of Baking, their slot which will be on August 1, 2013 (Thursday) at 11 AM will surprise pastry enthusiast as they will prepare a dessert table that will showcase Filipino ingredients. Who knows, anyone in the audience might become the next to follow their divalicious foot steps.

   Another much-awaited event is the presence of Chef Rick Moonen, in the seminars.  Considered first in the Philippines, the world-renowned King of American Seafood will show off his expertise in preparing seafood dishes.
   Chef Rick Moonen had been a contender for The Top Chef Masters and the Executive Chef and owner of RM Seafood and RX Boiler Room Restaurant in Las Vegas.  Aside from the cooking demo, he will also impart his advocacy "Feed the Planet," as he partners with WOFEX University to educate us about the growing needs for sustainability.

   If you are like me who tries to be way ahead of everybody else when comes to food trends, then join me explore WOFEX 2013.

   And since I am so honored to be partaking in the said events, and because PEPGroup, Inc. was so generous, let me share you 5 complimentary tickets to WOFEX 2013.  You can use them in any of the days at the SMX Convention Center, and on July 1 to August 4, 2013  at World Trade Center.
