holiday specials


In every occasion, there are certain foods that we dare not to miss. Like fruit cakes! It is also called the Christmas cake but in some parts of the world, fruit cakes are served during weddings.


It has been our tradition every New Year's Eve to prepare twelve kinds of fruits that are round in shape. It is said that this could be a good 
start to have a 
prosperous year or should I say, fruitful year.

Some people believe that in order to lengthen the existence, it is ideal to celebrate Anniversaries with pasta foods like spaghetti, bihon (rice noodle) and etc. Their elongated shape says it all.


When it comes to matters of the heart, chocolates and other sweet treats add more sweetness to those who celebrate the Valentine's Day.



In celebrating your Big Day, birthday cake is a must. It is the highlight of the celebration when it is time for the celebrant to make a wish and to blow the birthday candles.


Lechon... the center of attraction on the table during Festivals here in the Philippines. Lechon is a whole roasted pig cooked over charcoal. The crispiness of the pork skin is something to die for.



On the other hand, roasted turkey in Canada and in the US is the counterpart of Philippines' lechon. It is the "star" of their Thanksgiving celebration.



Finally, Christmas seems not complete if a ham is not part of the menu. This is the time of the year wherein volume orders of ham are evident. We just could not help keeping the ham on the Christmas table.


Whatever festivities there is, glorious food is always something that we enjoy. But don't forget to find a way to remove those carbs and cholesterol... 
  How about a cup of tea?
