Sheraton Manila staged its first interactive online class
In partnership with the Australian-New Zealand Chamber of Commerce Philippines (ANZCHAM), Sheraton Manila has taken on the challenge of bringing the hotel experience closer and safer to their esteemed guests by staging its first virtual cooking demo on Sept. 2, 2020. Dubbed as “Korean Masterclass: Interactive Online Cooking Class,” the online event featured signature dishes of Oori Korean Restaurant.
For a complete learning experience, they sent over cooking kits with ingredients to three dishes, plus a chef’s hat and soju bottle to 15 “student chefs” who cooked virtually alongside their Executive Korean Chef Kibum Park.
As this event was such a success, Sheraton Manila Hotel is cooking up another interactive virtual event this Halloween, featuring treats-making for the kids. To know more about this event, call 7-902-1800 or visit www.sheratonmanila.com.
