Now on it’s 4th year, Best Food Forward, the country’s biggest and most awaited benefit food fair, is back and set to happen on October 11 and 12, 2014.
I was able to attend the pre-event last week and took a peek at what’s in-store for us over the weekend.
Lick the Spoon
Lick the Spoon has this unique Gourmet Bagoong line that will surely delight all the bagoong-lovers out there — me included! They have Gourmet Bagoong with Tamarind, Gourmet Bagoong with SPiccy Chocolate, and Gourmet Bagoong with Mushrooms. My favorites are the Gurmet Bagoong with Tamarind and the Gourmet Bagoong with Spicy Chocolate.
They also have this Deep Dips which is good as dip, spread, or it can also be paired with noodles or rice. Some of the flavors are: Spicy Tinapa in TOmato Sauce, Three Mushroom, and Tomato Eggplant Pate.
Love, Agnessi specializes in all things sweet and scrumptious! Their cookies are best paired with a glass of cold milk!
Kooky Pam makes delectable gourmet cookies made with the freshest and highest quality ingredients. Their Red Velvet Cookie is to die for!
Kewpie Japanese Mayo
Kewpie has the creamiest and tastiest mayonnaise!
I was able to sample their Roasted Sesame Dressing in this Roasted Seasame Pulled Chicken Sandwich and their Mayo in this Spinach and Artichoke Spread.
Voila Jar Cakes
Voila Jars are ready-to-bake jar cakes you can bake in 3 easy steps in less than 5 minutes.
If you want FRESHLY BAKED cake whenever you want, then this is definitely for you. It is available in three different flavors:Belgian Fudge, Peanubutter Mudcake, and Red Velvet.
Big Dog’s Kitchen
Sandwich lovers out there better watch out for Big Dog’s Kitchen. They are whipping up the best Broccoli Mushroom and Cheese Sandwich and Roast Pork Sandwich in town.
Gourmet Garage is actually a caterings service but they have a restaurant located in Subic.
I was able to try their Chicken Biryaniand their Shrimp Baba Ghanoush — waking up my middle eastern tastebuds!
I’m sure there will be cooking demos with Carnation Evap and Condensada.
Jusa is the newest and most affordable Juice cleanse in Manila.They have a One-day Cleanse available for ₱1,350, 3-Day Cleanse for ₱3,500, and 5-Day Cleanse for ₱5,500.
I was able to try their Daily Greens and Summer’s Delight — both are refreshing and great-tasting!
I’m sure there will be more during the event and I can’t wait to try them.
With all the various specialty food stalls, innovative cooking demonstrations, celebrity chef appearances, family attractions, celebrity guests, and many more, its vibe and atmosphere will definitely make this event the most memorable to date – one that surely can’t be missed!
