Are my above picks making you drool over the hot guys and their dishes?? Hot Guys Who Cook is definitely an amazing show to look forward to every week starting from Monday, 25 June 2012.

I was honoured to be invited to attend the launch of DIVA's original production, Hot Guys Who Cook which was held at The Exchange, Asia Square Tower1.

Pardon me, if the pictures were lousy. Basically the trio of us went for the preview launch...

Jess Baby was smitten by all the gorgeous hunks featuring on the huge standee...

The Exchange provides a comfortable, high-end and simultaneously informal place to have breakfast, coffees, power lunches, languorous dinners and even after work drinks. This multi-layered concept of dining, lounge and bar is the ideal venue for any occasion.

Everyone in the house was eager to catch the sneak preview of Hot Guys Who Cook...

While-ing our time away by taking photos with Sweetie...

I love the long Chesterfield sofa which is part of the traditional design in The Exchange.

Cocktails were served throughout the whole event...

Let's toast up for this joyous event!!

Canapés were served to all guests in the house...

I followed @hotguyswhocook on twitter!! Have you guys done the same??

Catch a glimpse of Nat Ho and took a picture of him. He is very friendly in person and we chatted for quite a bit...

An appetiser announcement was made: Three hot guys will be cooking up a storm LIVE at the party. Truly a sneak preview for all of us in the house.

Without any further ado, the three guys were Henry Golding, Nat Ho and Paul Foster... *SCREAM and CHEERING for the hot guys in aprons.

Henry Golding whipped up his signature dish, Roasted Chicken right in front of all the guests and media people... Pretty skilful when doing the chopping and slicing job. A great example of all the modern guys who regards cooking just as serious as most ladies do. See photos for self-explanatory!!

Roasted Chicken was nicely done by Henry Golding

Good-looking Henry Golding and his looking good signature dish, Roasted Chicken

Nat Ho's mum is a great cook, therefore giving him an additional reason for him to stay at home for most of his meals if his schedules are not packed. As per him, his signature dish, Potato Salad with Steak comes from his mum's recipe. He did his cooking demonstration in a slow and steady manner, it was a pretty eye-opening experience for me to see him in an apron and whipping up a plate of delicious food.

Nat Ho presented his dish, Potato Salad with Steak in front of all cameras.

Nat Ho and his delicious dish... *Big applause to him*

With the most cooking experience among the three, Paul Foster did a pretty fast cooking demonstration for his signature dish, Indian Delight (Yellow Dahl, Sarg Paneer and Chicken Tikka). He also showed us a few methods to cook the dish. Based on the way he speaks, and via his actions, it shows us that he is pretty much a mentor when it comes to preparing food.

Paul Foster's used the least time to prepare his signature dish, Indian Delight (Yellow Dahl, Sarg Paneer and Chicken Tikka). The Chicken Tikka looked pretty good.

Paul Foster wins all the women hearts with his always cheerful and friendly smile... He looked great posing with his signature dish, Indian Delight (Yellow Dahl, Sarg Paneer and Chicken Tikka).

It was really a rare opportunity to see them doing LIVE cooking demonstration and we given a chance to taste the food later... It was truly a blissful night with all the people in the house and of course the three hot guys.

How can I call off my night without taking photos with the hot guys?

I tasted Nat's Potato Salad with Steak, OM!! It tasted very good, I simply can't help myself with more servings.

More servings coming up for Henry's Roasted Chicken... Sweetie and I enjoyed it loads!!

To see more gorgeous guys whipping up delicious dishes, stay tuned for Hot Guys Who Cook on DIVA Universal (Starhub Channel. 522), premieres on 25 June, every Monday, at 9pm.

Thanks DIVA Universal for the wonderful goodie bag!!
