#FWDLifetimeOfPossibilities: Culinary Class with Chef Laudico

What's in your bucket list for 2018? Have you started saving for your biggest travel destination? Making some adjustments for your dream wedding?

FWD Culinary Bucket List Moment

Yesterday, FWD Life Insurance gathered all the winners of FWD Culinary Bucket List Moment at Chef Guevarra's to showcase their winning dishes from last year's Lifetime of Possibilities social media campaign. FWD challenged the public to live life to the fullest, say yes to every possibility, and start working on their bucket lists.

The pan-Asian insurance company, with offices in Hong Kong and Macau, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, Japan, and the Philippines partnered with experts in different fields: Coach Jim and Coach Toni Saret for Fitness, Doms Lim and Perci Intalan for Filmmaking, Casa Escondida Anilao Resort & Dive Center for Scuba Diving, and Chef Laudico for Culinary to help them take their first step to achieving their bucket list goals.

The FWD Culinary Bucket List Moment awarding was held yesterday at Guevarra's restaurant in San Juan. With the guidance of celebrity Chef Laudico, these chef-wannabes prepared their specially created dishes - special adobo, menudo and Spicy Corn Carbonara.

Chef Rolando Laudico believes that anyone with the burning passion, business savvy, endurance, and, most important, creativity has what it takes to take their humble dishes from their kitchen counters to the tables of their very own restaurant - if they work hard enough for it.

In fact, the Philippines’ rock star chef and former host and judge of MasterChef Pinoy Edition, started his career in the food business washing dishes and chopping ingredients before saving enough money to get into the CIA in New York. “We all have to start somewhere,” says Chef Lau, as close friends in the industry like to call him. And from there, Chef Lau went from dreaming of starting his own restaurant to opening dining concepts that had made him, quite literally, a household name in the local culinary scene - Guevarra’s by Chef Laudico in San Juan and Chef Laudico OK Café in Pasig. 
As for the winners of the FWD Life Philippines’ (FWD) Bucket List Contest, they all started in their own kitchens - attracted by the lure of slowly melting shallots and caramelized pork belly or perfectly fluffy cheese omelets - cooking their much-loved specialty dish for friends and family. On their bucket list: Learn to create dishes that will someday wow the world. And FWD Life Philippines and Chef Lau himself are helping to make that happen for them.
