Lee Kum Kee Announces Winners of 130th Anniversary Recipe Contest

When I was still young, I knew that the moment my Mom took out the Lee Kum Kee from our cupboard, it meant she was about to cook her pork dish that I've come to love. It automatically gave me visions of 3 cups of rice plus the sauce of the pork dripping all over it. YUM YUM! 

Thankfully, my brother has the recipe so I know that I can always ask him as well as my Mom for future reference on how to cook it myself. After all, Lee Kum Kee has been in existence for over 100 years and the recipes that had been created along with it are now timeless.

In celebration of its 130th Anniversary, “Lee Kum Kee 130th Anniversary Recipe Contest” was launched in 2018 globally to look for the best recipe created with Lee Kum Kee sauces and condiments. The competition received close to 500 entries worldwide, of which 50 came from the Philippines. On January 22, 2019, a Prize Presentation Ceremony was held to award the country’s two regional winners. 



Home-maker and small business owner Ms. Venus Lorraine Moral took home the Most Liked Recipe Prize with her own version of the beloved Pinoy Local Empanada using Lee Kum Kee Premium Soy Sauce. The mother of one has been using Lee Kum Kee products in her home business for more than eight years. Sharing her passion for good food, Lorraine loves joining online cooking and recipe contests. The winning dish is her family favorite. As a cook, Lorraine loves using Lee Kum Kee products for its consistent taste, which makes every dish more delicious. As the winner with 2,370 online votes, Lorraine took home HKD 13,000 in cash (approximately PHP 87,000) and a gift package of Lee Kum Kee products.


Runner-up winner Maria Lorena Cruz is a food technologist from Los Banos, Laguna with her winning recipe Char Siu Chicken Mango Tortilla Pizza. With the help of her husband, who was her official taste tester, Lorena used a technical approach using culinary experimentation to come up with the delicious balance of sweet, savory, and tangy flavors using Lee Kum Kee Char Siu Sauce and Lee Kum Kee Panda Brand Oyster Sauce. Having a passion for cooking and baking, Lorena has been using Lee Kum Kee products for over 10 years because of its signature flavor and superior quality.
