On Nov 10, 2023, food enthusiasts gathered at Samsung’s 837NYC event space to witness “A Taste of Jamaica,” a live cooking demonstration from the creator of ThatNurseCanCook, Helena Faustin. With her son Gregory, also known as “TiGreg,” Helena used the latest Samsung appliances to prepare Jerk Chicken Egg Roll, and Vegetable Egg Roll. Aside from enjoying the delicious food, attendees were able to explore Samsung’s immersive technology throughout the event space throughout the evening.
The SmartThings Kitchen installation served as the setting for Helena’s cooking demonstration. The latest Samsung appliances were instrumental in preparing her dishes. She used a Samsung smart fridge and oven in her demo. The kitchen appliances were user-friendly and showcased the convenience that technology brings to cooking.
Helena’s take on the Jamaican dish Jerk Chicken Egg Roll and Vegetable Egg Roll was a fantastic fusion of two different cuisines. The egg roll wrapper was crispy and perfectly cooked, and the filling was a blend of crunchy vegetables and seasoned chicken with traditional Jamaican Jerk seasoning.
