KFC reveals the principles and passion of the iconic Colonel Sanders in a secret manuscript of his life’s work and their newest product innovation the KFC Original Recipe Bites
Filipinos have been enjoying the same Original Recipe chicken for 45 so good years now. The secret recipe of this well-known chicken was developed by Colonel Sanders, whose real principles and passion for quality cooking, helped create that so good and so real taste that we have all come to love.
Recently, a secret manuscript, written by the Colonel himself, was discovered in his home in Louisville, Kentucky. It does not only contain his life story, lessons, and personal values but also reveals a collection of 33 of his most treasured recipes.
To give back to its loyal customers, KFC has made Colonel Sanders’ secret manuscript available to the public on its official Facebook Philippines page http://www.facebook.com/kfcphilippines for everyone to enjoy.
Guests gathered in The Diamond Hotel as KFC revealed one of the Colonel’s never-before-seen recipes from the manuscript called Hush Puppies. Everyone witnessed Filipino Celebrity Chef, Sharwin Tee of the cooking show Curiosity Got the Chef, create his own rendition of the iconic dish, which was called Double-Cheese Hush Puppies with Peach and Basil Ketchup. The dish was served during lunch for everyone to enjoy.
“I have been eating KFC since I was very little and to be here now, cooking something straight out of the Colonel’s autobiography is a dream come true to me. His life stories, lessons and principles, not to mention his recipes, will really inspire and motivate anyone who loves to cook and eat,” said celebrity chef, Sharwin Tee.
“The Hush Puppies is used as side dishes for other fried foods and what I wanted to achieve today was to create a recipe that can stand on its own. I’ve added my own take on the recipe but did not deviate from the original to keep the flavors mild while maintaining that Southern taste that Colonel Sanders envisioned it to be over four decades ago,” he continued.
Event hosts and popular radio DJs Chico and Delamar took the audience back to the life of the iconic Colonel Sanders whose passion led to the discovery of so good recipes made with the freshest ingredients that the world has come to love.
What’s more, KFC Philippines also introduced guests to their newest product, the Original Recipe Bites, an irresistibly juicy and tender chicken snack that comes in five bite size pieces. Each piece is made of 100% real chicken, no extenders, and is breaded with the Colonel’s 11 secret herbs and spices. Now it is easier to enjoy your favorite Original Recipe anytime, anywhere.
“KFC is committed to the values brought about by our founder Colonel Sanders who provided the principles and passion that we practice ‘til this day,” said Cha-Cha Juinio, KFC Philippines General Manager. “The KFC Original Recipe Bites launched here today and the manuscript that we will share with the public on June 5th are testaments of our commitment toward product innovation and providing quality food with the freshest ingredients.”
