A Cheesy Christmas for Pinoy

I Love my Cheese“, there said Miss Janette Toral as she made a joke on the suggested packaged Eden Cheese for Men at Shanggri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa.

Christmas is everywhere. Christmas lights are decorated in plants, Belens and other creative stuffs. Lanterns were hanged outside the door. The cold air is already touching everyone’s house bringing with them the scents of every household’s dishes and preparations for the most coveted moment in our entire life, the Noche Buena. After that worst calamity that visited the Philippines, most especially the Metro Manila areas, Filipinos are not losing hope of standing up and bringing back what they lost and what were destroyed. Eden Cheese helped Filipinos in simple way of making Filipinos dishes for Christmas more presentable, delicious and nutritious.

With their launched activity entitled Keso de Gallo, a nationwide event coinciding with the traditionally celebrated Misa de Gallo ( a Catholic Christmas tradition wherein nine dawn masses are held starting December 16, which will culminate on Christmas eve), ordinary Filipinos can showcase their talent of creating simple dishes perfected with Eden Cheese in each nine towns that Kraft Foods visited. They started the visit at Bacolod City, down to Iloilo, Davao, Cagayan De Oro, Cebu City, Naga, Butuan City, Laoag and Pampanga. In each of the visited towns, Eden will feature a winning dish which is affordable and presentable for Noche Buena. In this way, Eden can help Filipinos who cannot afford to buy dishes and desserts from expensive stores and instead of buying, they can create their own dish out of their own sources in the backyard or in their garden.

Cebu, specifically at Our Lady of Fatima Parish Church, Basak Mandaue City, is the 8th town which Eden has visited and we are proud that our very own teacher Lorna Angcay’s (of San Nicolas Elementary School) creation was the highlight of the event. The recipe is named Mixed Vegetable Maja Con Keso. The very exciting part of this dish is that vegetables are the main ingredients for this very delectable dessert. Honestly, it really taste like a original maja, completed with stripped Eden cheese and kids will really love this without their knowledge that vegetables are in it.

For the people behind Eden Cheese endeavors, way to go and God bless.

Merry Christmas to all!
