KDU University College is proud to be one of the sponsors in the latest event, held by the Embassy of Sweden in Malaysia. The Department of Creative Media has sponsored a mobile app called Swedelicious to coincide with the Swedish Embassy’s culinary event; Sweden: A Great Food Nation.
A team of student developers overseen by lecturers is currently developing a game app for the Android Googly Play store which features Sweden’s most culturally significant cuisine such as Prinsesstårta or everyone’s favourite Köttbullar (meatballs with gravy).
This event and the app is to introduce, promote and raise awareness on Swedish Cuisine and cultural exchange between Sweden and Malaysia. Our lecturer, Ms. Michelle Goh was cordially invited to the press conference at Starhill Culinary Studio and had an exciting day, mingling with the Swedes and an actress.
The day started off with Swedish Chef Michael Elfwing, an Award Winning chef at the Hilton KL, teaching the media and guests, ways to cook fish Lasagna and Corned Beef with Root Vegetables.
After that, all the guests were split into 3 groups to attempt to re-create the Halibut Lasagna, Corned Beef with Roof Vegetables and Butter Cake with Elderflowers and Rhubarb and Custard. The guests were given a hands-on-approach and were invited to cook their own lunch. The Ambassador of Sweden to Malaysia; H.E. Bengt G. Carlsson was not spared, as he joined Ms. Michelle’s team in preparing the Halibut Lasagna.
Once the food were prepared, everyone had a taste of each other’s food and they were graced by a very Special Guest, a professional actress, television host, emcee and producer; Ms. Lavin Seow who is internationally recognized in China, Hong Kong and the Best Actress in Golden Arts Awards 2005.
At the end of the day, Ms. Michelle who doesn’t know how to cook, now, is able to reproduce the Halibut Lasagna but, she’s still too lazy to cook.
Exhibit A: Halibut Lasagna
