Grocery shopping is therapeutic rather than a chore for me. Shopwise is one of my happy places.  It is also known for its affordable quality, everyday freshness and budget-friendly variety.  This July, Shopwise launches more exclusive imported brand  in their supermarkets. Definitely a happy place for all wise moms like me.

I am happy that I was invited for their first leg of Shopwise The BIG COOK-OFF 2018. The contestants will create palatable pasta dishes using Shopwise’ Best Value brands like Papa Alfredo, White Hat, Southdale Farm and more. They have two categories : Mommy Bloggers and students from Apicius Culinary School.
