Knowing Ili, one should prepare for a lively session centred around fresh ingredients, robust spices, nectar-like sweetness, with handy tips and tricks! Ingredients for the dish will be shared on three Facebook pages at the end of the live cooking session so be sure to wait till the end.

During the live streaming session, Ili will also answer questions from viewers. Viewers can ask her about the recipe she will prepare or other burning questions as long as they are on cooking and food!

Jazmi Kamarudin, Senior General Manager of the Curve, said, “This Ramadan is very different from any other. The live cooking show is our way of connecting with our patrons and the general public, and to encourage everyone to stay safely at home, while enjoying the delicious opportunity to engage with Ili. We hope it will also remind everyone that we have much to be grateful for and to look forward to a time when we will meet again outside our homes.”

Great as healthy snacks and as well as sugar replacement for many recipes in cooking and baking.


The Raisin Administrative Committee (RAC) ushered in the auspicious new year with a sweet repertoire of specially-crafted delicious recipes using California Raisins at the Samplings On the Fourteen Restaurant at Berjaya University College.


All of the KOLs were pleasantly thrilled as we “eat close and personal with the chefs” - watching them demonstrate on the versatile California Raisins in a four-course dinner.

Mouse mommy was enjoying the dining moments with California Raisins. Creative recipes with nice combination of food served.


The California Raisins, Crab and Cauliflower is delicious and suits my tastebuds. Each bite of it was feeling satisfied. Well-blend and rich in food ingredients.


Chef Emmanuel Stroobant needs no introduction as the Belgian’s 2-star Michelin celebrity chef had his first brush with culinary business when he started working as a kitchen help as young as 16 years and worked his way in the culinary world within a span of a decade, notably hosting the AFC channel for many years and opening his first restaurant in Singapore called Saint Pierre.

Chef Erich Anton Roos, a Swiss national with 40 years of culinary and international  working experience which covers many Western and Asian countries. Currently based in Bangkok, his role are focused in consultancy and strategic planning for kitchen training needs in international hotel chains.


RAC’s Trade Promotions Director for Malaysia, Mr Richard Lieu says for most consumers, especially children, California Raisins are a healthy snack compared with other snack foods, as they are naturally sweet and do not contain any added sugar. California Raisins are also a very versatile ingredient and can inspire a wide repertoire of dishes—from appetisers and main dishes to desserts and beverages—especially as consumers are becoming more health conscious and more adventurous in their culinary endeavours. “We are very honoured and delighted to work with Chef Emmanuel and Chef Erich to create scrumptious recipes and amazing tastes using California Raisins this time to celebrate the start of 2020 with Malaysian influencers,” enthused Richard. 


More than just an appetising delight, raisins are a great source of nutrition which is  suitable to incorporate into meals amidst rising health issues due to unhealthy diets.


Richard adds that raisins are ideal for any occasion, as they are ready-to-eat, tasty and healthy. A package of California Raisins fits perfectly in a purse or briefcase They also conveniently fit in lunch boxes, gym bags, and in your desk drawer. California Raisins are also economical, do not bruise and are easy to use straight out of the box— no washing, peeling or chopping required—so one can create a simple meal.


Ms Tan Yen Sing, a certified clinical dietitian also was present to share on the goodness and benefits of California Raisins.


Ms Tan said studies have shown that increased consumption of fruits & vegetables more than 5 servings a day is related to a 17% reduction in coronary heart disease.
“Good nutrition is the best approach for preventing diseases and being healthy. Raisins, high level of polyphenol antioxidants containing about 3,037 ORAC units (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity – a method in measuring antioxidants in food) in about 2/3 cup. This essential substance are vital for protection against oxidative stress which is related to aging and disease,” said Tan.  


Raisins, though small, must not be underestimated for their health benefits. Tan explained raisins containing 35% fructose and 35% glucose are natural fruit sugar which is a good source of energy and has no fat & no cholesterol.  It is a healthy snack and is also a sugar replacement for many recipes in cooking and baking.


The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommends that adults consume 1½ to 2 cups of fruit per day. A portable, readily available fruit, such as California Raisins, is ideal to help fulfill this quota. In fact, it only takes ½ cup of raisins to equal a whole fruit serving vs 1 full cup of fresh fruit.


There are many benefits of California Raisins. Naturally sweet, do not contain added sugar and great source of fibre. 

It is also a source of potassium (an important electrolyte that aids in muscle, cardiovascular and nervous system function), cholesterol-free and naturally low in sodium. Suitable to eat as snacks or for cooking purpose.
