Philips Airfryer Cooking Workshop with Chef Amy Beh

Chinese New Year (CNY) will be coming soon and this is a good time to learn new recipes to cook for your family. I went to the Philips Airfryer Cooking Workshop at Feves de Choco, Setapak last Saturday to learn to cook new CNY dishes with Chef Amy Beh. As many prepare to welcome the Year of the Rooster, it is time to fill the dining table with traditional Chinese New Year dishes to usher in more “fatt” with less fat with the help of Philips. Among the must-have dishes at the table are fish to signify abundance, spring rolls and dumplings to represent wealth, tang yuan also known as sweet rice balls for family togetherness, and oranges, tangerines and pomelos for fullness and wealth.



As significant as each dish is, it is also important to remember that cooking methods have health consequences. For example, consuming too much oily fried food is bad for the heart. This Chinese New Year, Philips Malaysia is collaborating with celebrity Chef Amy Beh and Feminine magazine to introduce the healthier versions of several familiar traditional dishes made using the Philips Airfryer with new TurboStar technology.



“Chinese New Year is a time for families and friends to gather and spend quality time with each other, while wishing each other prosperity and a good year ahead. The annual Chinese New Year reunion dinner with its menu of traditional Chinese dishes is especially significant for all generations of the family. However, those that are health conscious may be concerned that traditional Chinese dishes are often saturated in oil and unhealthy fats,” said Muhammad Ali Jaleel, Chief Executive Officer of Philips Group of Companies in Malaysia. “Philips is dedicated to improving people’s lives through meaningful innovation, and this includes innovating convenient and time-saving appliances that help consumers prepare healthier meals. For Chinese New Year, we are collaborating with Chef Amy Beh to demonstrate how familiar Chinese dishes such as spring rolls and steamed chicken can be recreated with a healthier twist without compromising on taste using the Philips Airfryer equipped with new TurboStar technology.”

Now armed with TurboStar technology, the Philips Airfryer TurboStar is the latest in the Philips range of airfryers that helps consumers lose the oil but not the taste when cooking. From roasted pork to steamed chicken and spring rolls, the Philips Airfryer can help with the preparation of a complete Chinese New Year dinner for the coming Year of the Rooster.


All the participants of the cooking workshop had their hands on experience using this new Philips Airfryer TurboStar range. This is better than the old range that I am using because the basket can be taken out from the handle making it much easier to wash. 

Cheh Amy Beh taught us to cook 3 dishes - Tong Kwai Flavor Roasted Pork, Grilled Spicy Fish With Wonder Mushrooms and Tamarind Honey Prawns. 




My team cooked these 3 dishes. I liked the roasted pork the most as the skin was crunchy and meat was delicious. It's crispy on the outside and tender in the inside. These 3 dishes were cooked with organic Alce Nero products.
