I always wanted to own a AirFryer and was glad to attend Chef Amy Beh cooking class where she whip Up Some Chinese New Year Delights with the latest Philips Airfryer TurboStar which is the latest in the Philips range of airfryers.
Philips Airfryer TurboStar features a more compact design without compromising on capacity, the latest addition to the Philips Airfryer range continues to offer great tasting fried food cooked with up to 80% less fat. Not only is the new Philips Airfryer space-saving, but it is also time-saving as pre-heating is no longer needed. It comes equipped with Philips TurboStar technology that enables users to fry with little or no oil and produce food that is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The TurboStar technology also cooks fried food 50% more evenly and faster with no turning needed.
In conjunction with Chinese New Year, Philips has released a limited edition red Philips Airfryer (HD9623/31) to liven up the kitchen with the festive colour. So ONG right!!! I really love this red colour!
Philips invited a few of us to a CNY cooking workshop organised by Feminine magazine for the readers. So they kinda extended the invite to us.
So she will be showing cooking demo using Philips Airfryer TurboStar.

1 tsp Salt Method:
1) Place the pork belly, skin side up, into a pot of boiling water and simmer for 5-6 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave the pork to soak for 6-8 minutes in the pot to allow the shape of the meat to become firm.
2) Remove and pat dry with kitchen paper towels.
3) Prick the skin with a sharp skewer all over to enable the skin to blister evenly and thoroughly during roasting.
4) Score or cut small, uniform gashes in the surface of the meat side and rub combined marinade (B) over the meat and sides.
5) Turn meat over and rub organic apple cider vinegar followed by salt onto the skin. Wipe the skin with kitchen paper towels to remove any excess water or liquid.
