Dream Whip Made A Wish Come True!

Dream Whip – is a
brand name that evokes warm and fuzzy memories from my childhood .Just one
fleeting glance at the Dream Whip packet, magically teleports me back in time
at my mom’s kitchen where I would mischievously sneak in the kitchen to experiment
with chocolate mousse or top the Jello with Dream Whip.
 This is why I
readily accepted the invitation for a recent Dream Whip event at Jeddah Chamber
of Commerce building. The event was held to announce the winners of DreamWhip
initiative “Make a wish come true” – which was
in collaboration with “Konola Montigoun” charity project
instituted by JCCI .

I quite liked their contest and would like to share the
details with you. Dream Whip had selected 11 women from the productive families
of “Kolona Montigoun” project to share the most challenging stories of
progression from their lives. They were also asked to share their fantasy baking
recipes in order to win and fulfill this dream recipe.


 Public participation was generated via an online campaign
that ran on the Dream Whip’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/DreamWhipArabia from
July- August 2013.  The audience rated the top four contestants via voting
based on the women’s challenging stories and their passion for baking. 


The best
thing that I liked from this contest was that for each vote on Dream Whip
Facebook page, the company donated SR. 1/- that aided the accomplishment of the
women’s wishes in addition to a cash prize for the main winner.

The
final four contestants were made to compete with each other in an on-ground baking competition for final
evaluation by the esteemed panelists. These talented women prepared yummylicious
desserts, to impress the judging committee. 

The panel of judges comprised of veteran personalities like Chef. Soumaya Al Idrissi and Chef. Ohood Sohail, who rated the candidates’ based on their skills in baking, creativity and uniqueness of their recipes.

 Well, believe me the Competition was
not an easy one to  crack given the fact that the participants were all so
brilliant  with their dishes, that it was a nail biting and  mouth- watering moment. Well,
there had to be one grand  prize winner and the lucky lady was – “Noha Nour
Fadul” –  her winning recipe was Galaxy Chocolate with Dream Whip. She received a sum of USD  5,000 which would help in honing her baking skills further. 

I had the good opportunity of having a
one-on-one session with this talented young lady. Below are some excerpts.
