Out of 13 nominations, AksyonTV’s lifestyle program “Chef vs. Mom” was the only Philippine bet that won at the 17th Asian Television Awards held at the Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore on Thursday night, December 6, 2012.
The “mother-son cooking showdown” show bested India’s “Band Baajaa Bride with Sabyasachi”; Singapore’s “Passage to Abu Dhabi,” “Chef On The Road,” and “Lonely Planet Six Degrees China – Episode Shanghai”; and Malaysia’s “Axian Food Adventures (Season 2)” and “Now Everyone Can Fly to New Zealand.”
