Try The Sweets Figaro Offers This Christmas

I got to try these treats during a food tasting event at Figaro. I tried two kinds of brownies. A regular brownie and a Christmas themed brownie. This brownie is kinda unique because of it's mint topping if you don't mind a strong minty taste but for me I enjoyed it.

Fruitcakes never misses a Christmas season but I am not fond of it. But Figaro's Fruitcake was different from the usual fruitcake and it is the only one I get to finished eating. Try them out at your nearest Figaro branch.

Sandwich Heroes: Eating A Sandwich Can Make A Difference

Growing up, I was trained to finished my meals without leaving not even a piece of rice unless there's a bone or peel from a fruit. There are many reasons why I was being told: "Farmers worked hard for it", "it shouldn't be wasted" and "somewhere in the globe, there are people dying because of hunger". Emphasis on the last one.

Sadly, these are one of the problems that we usually see in the news. At the request of our government, World Food Programme or WFP addresses the needs for food security needs in conflict-stricken areas in Mindanao. But WFP is not just concerned with the food programme but also building up communities for social awareness.

According to facts provided by WFP, hunger kills more people than AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined. Ratio is 1:7 people(adults and children) worldwide goes to bed hungry each night. In the Philippines, it's 1:9.

Unilever Philippines, who distributes popular names in grooming and food products such as Knorr, Lipton, Dove, Vaseline, Sunsilk, Creamsilk and Ponds, joins WFP against hunger and has been involved with the campaign in many occasions.. Unilever's business unit, Unilever Food Solutions, takes care of food services division that handles food services done in hotels, restaurants and caterers. This makes a good avenue for starting the campaign. WFP and Unilever launched the campaign, Sandwich Heroes. 

With this campaign, WFP and Unilever will make a difference and lessen hunger in hard-to-reach areas in ARMM, Maguindanao, Lanao Del Norte, Lanao Del Sur and Sultan Kudarat. It only takes ten pesos to provide a good, decent meal for a small child. You can also take part and make a difference. There will be featured sandwiches in participating establishments: Bigg's Diner, Cibo, The Coffee Experience, CoffeeBreak, Figaro, HotShots, JD Bakeshop, KFC, Mushroomburger, The Flying Pig, Holy Cow, The Sandwich Guy, and Wham! Burgers. For updates and information, like WFP-Phils. on Facebook.

ASEAN COFFEE GROUP TO MEET IN PHILS.

COFFEE ADVOCATES led by Philippine Coffee Board Inc directors lead the ceremonial unveiling of the commitment to host the ASEAN Coffee Federation meeting in February 2012 in Manila.
The 5th Regional meeting of the Asean Coffee Federation will be held in Manila on February 17 and 18, 2012.  The past four meetings of the year-old confederation have been held in Pattaya, Laos, Singapore and the last one was in Bangkok, Thailand just last September.  The Philippines was represented by Nicholas A. Matti, Chair of the Philippine Coffee Board, Inc (PCBI) and Emmanuel U.Torrejon, President of the Specialty Coffee Association of the Philippines(SCAP).

The event will be announced to the coffee industry during the opening of the COFFEE ORIGINS 2011 festival on October 7 at 6 pm at the Greenbelt 5 Gallery, Ayala Center.  National Competitiveness Council Chair Guillermo M. Luz (who is a founder of the PCBI) will deliver the inspirational talk during the opening.
Everyone but everyone who is in the coffee business will be witness to a “signing ceremony” where the coffee stakeholders will sign their commitment and support for the ASEAN Coffee Federation. The formation of this body for coffee is timely as 2015 is fast approaching and coffee producers, importers and exporters will no longer pay tariffs and will make it an even playing field for all Asean member countries.

The Philippines continues to encourage its farmers to meet the domestic demand of 65000 MT as production levels have remained at the 30000MT level for many years now. If we do not plant more coffee, we may lose our competitiveness in the region.

The PCBI is at the forefront of the coffee initiatives from the private sector.  PCBI chair Matti was recently appointed as Committee on Coffee chair in the Philippine Chamber of Agriculture and Food Inc. while PCBI director Joel Lumagbas is also appointed as a Trustee of the policy advocacy organization.

Meanwhile, Pacita Juan, President of the PCBI has been asked to join the International Women’s Coffee Alliance (IWCA) to represent women coffee farmers and women-owned coffee businesses.  Juan will gather all women groups in coffee through her network of NGOs and Microfinance partner organizations.

Getting Buffalo at Wingman

Chicken wings are my least favorite part of any chicken meal but I am beginning to like it when I tried the Buffalo wings at Wingman in Makati. The Monday Supper Club invited me to join the An-All-You-Can-Eat-Buffalo-Wings-Festival.

Like I said, chicken wings is my least favorite part of the chicken and so does everyone else except if you are old school.The bony proportions were scrapped and often shipped to soup factories. Where did the name Buffalo came from? Buffalo wings were said to have been invented by husband and wife Frank and Teressa Belissimo for their family-owned restaurant at Buffalo, New York in 1964.

Every year since 2002, there are Buffalo Wing Festival held in the United States with average festival goers of 407,000, consuming 2.4M wings which weighs about 137 tons. They also do this for charity and collected about $125,000. In a similar event, a Philadelphia radio station hosts the Wing Bowl that draws 20,000. Joey Chestnut holds the record in consuming 241 wings in 28 minutes during the 2008 Wing Bowl Championship.

Back here at Wingman, I met Mike Choo, aka Chewy. He oriented me about what will happen. It will be like Buffalo Wing Festival on a smaller crowd. What's great about the atmosphere of the place is that most people know each other here. As we began, Jhong Medina of The Lunchbreak Blogger and I were competing who will finish a plate of a dozen medium-spicy Buffalo wings first.

As  I wore the disposable transparent plastic gloves, Chewy was teaching me how to eat the buffalo wings properly using only your hands. It should be snapped in half so they can look like smaller drumsticks to make it more easier to eat than in its akimbo shape.
Darryl consumed the most Buffalo wings:37

After one hour, Darryl was the first to consume 37 wings while among the ladies present; Mae was able to finish 17 wings. I was able to finish my dozen wings in 18mins. and 48secs. minutes and Jhong was able to finish his in 30 minutes. The Buffalo wings is unlike any chicken I've tasted. The saucy dressing was just the way I like for chicken wings even though it was medium spicy  that it made me sweat but it is just how I love it. For my taste buds, it is more appetizing when it's spicy.
Mia finished 17 Buffalo wings

A dozen wings is only cost 300 and it's a hearty meal even without rice but there are carrot sticks for side dish. You can also have the option of a half dozen Buffalo wings for only 180. Try it with the blue cheese. It is best served with beer or iced tea. Wingman is located at The Collective 7274 Malugay st. Makati.You can contact Wingman at 903-2791.Thanks to Enjoy Philippines for inviting the W.H.A.T. Blogger and Mike Choo for making us feel welcome.

You can now do your own tea with Figaro's tea bags. These tea bags are not your ordinary instant tea. These are also herbal teas that may help you with your healthy maintenance. There are cures that does not come from capsules, tablets or syrups because most are chemicals. Sometimes, cures are required a touch from Mother Nature. It comes with four homegrown Filipino flavors: Banaba, Lagundi, Sambong and Pito-pito. We have a fixed idea when it's herbal, it taste awful but with Figaro, the blend is better than I expected. I suggest to top it with a lemon or you can also make an iced tea with it.
