Empire Phoenix Gets Cooking for the ‘Gram with Chef Sous Chef

Purchasing your first home is definitely one of life’s major milestones, but there’s a lot more to adulting than just paying a mortgage. To help millennials and soon-to-be homebuyers on the path of becoming adults, we’ve launched an exclusive event series to show you how to #adult in style through food, networking, financing and wellness.

The first instalment of Empire Adulting, Cooking for the ‘Gram, kicked off the series at the Empire Phoenix Presentation Centre in Etobicoke featuring foodie experts Philip and Mystique, also known as Chef Sous Chef.

The duo walked guests through their secrets for grocery shopping success that won’t break the bank or overcrowd your condo, meal planning you’ll actually look forward to and their picks for what to invest in for kitchen tools. Guests took home this handy guide which you can download here.

The live presentation kicked off with Phil’s recipe for the perfect homemade hummus using 8 simple ingredients, chick peas, garlic, yogurt, tahini, lemon, salt, pepper and olive oil. The room was filled with the heavenly smell of fresh garlic and lemon as he plated the dip out from the Vitamix.

Next it was over to Mystique to give us a creative tutorial on food styling. The hummus looked almost too beautiful to eat after she drizzled the plate with olive oil and sprinkled with dukkah, herbs, feta and edible flowers, turning a simple hummus dish into an Instagram worthy masterpiece. Thankfully samples were handed out for everyone to taste the dish for themselves.
