The Frabelle Foodie Chef Finals, a Facebook promotion of Frabelle Foods, was held at Cafe 1771 in Ortigas Pasig Thursday last week. It was attended by foodies, bloggers, media and some famous personalities.
The 1st Frabelle Foodie Chef competition actually started last year in October. Food lovers, enthusiasts and consumers of Frabelle Foods in the Metro Manila area were invited to join. Each participant were required to come up with a unique recipe using any of the Frabelle products like hotdogs, cheesedogs, ham, tocino, longganiza, and bacon.

Sen. Francis Joseph "Chiz" Escudero, who considers himself a Frabelle Foodie Chef at heart, was one of the judges at the 1st ever Frabelle Foodie Chef Finals.
This super yummy Stuffed Chicken, which also won the Blogger's Choice Award, was selected to be the best among 5 entries.
