AsianFood Channel (AFC) in cooperation with Ayala Malls recently brought international celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s protégé Aaron Craze more popularly known as ‘Rude Boy’ to a live cooking demonstration and food sampling at the Greenbelt Open Park in Greenbelt 3, Makati City. Hosted by celebrity TV host and funny guy Drew Arellano, guests had a blast starting off with fashionable Sabrina Artadi (of Asian Food Channel’s Sabrina’s Kitchen) lovely concoction of authentic Spanish recipes. When Aaron Craze went onstage he received a warm reception from the crowd as he showed off his witty antics to the audience’s delight. He even invited three lucky ladies who both volunteered to help him prepare his dishes.
Aaron Craze swings his butt, dances to the beat of the music and occasionally sings as he cooks on-stage during the live demo. He had a way to somehow ‘flirt’ with the crowd and almost teasingly pulled down his pants but was quickly reminded by Drew that the church was a stone’s throw away; to which Craze immediately apologized.
Here watch my own video on how he wiggled his body to the beat of the music:
Craze prepared three different recipes such as Mexican Beef Tortilla with Tomato Salsa and Sour Cream, Ravioli of Sunshine with Thai Asparagus, and Unbaked Lemongrass Cheesecake with Amoretti Biscuit base.
I personally loved Craze’s take on Unbaked Lemongrass Cheesecake with Amoretti Biscuit Base. For one, one does not need to bake this cake. And it tastes just right, not too sweet—just enough to satisfy your sweet tooth or sweet cravings. It’s a perfect way to cap off every meal. I would definitely try making it at home once I get the time. Craze’s Ravioli of Sunshine with Thai Asparagus was truly healthy and perfect for kids who do not like to eat veggies. The ravioli’s filled with spinach, ricotta and egg yolk. On the other hand, the Mexican Beef Tortilla’s just fine. It had the rich flavor of coriander, tomatoes and garlic with some zest of lemon. It’s something I’d probably serve for snacks or afternoon merienda.
