As I have said in a previous post, Christmas season in the Philippines is all about food. It’s that special time when all ladies of the house take charge in food preparation and showcase their kitchen prowess. Of course when we do this, we need all the help we can get – not only extra human hands but also kitchen tools, a reliable oven/cooking range, sharp knives, sturdy pots and time-trusted products like GLAD.
There are many kinds of GLAD products available for cooking, baking, wrapping and storing stuff. We were certainly glad to learn how to use them wisely in two separate events led by celebrity moms no less!
The first GLAD Get-Together was held in time for Thanksgiving 2018 at the cozy confines of Pottery Barn in Central Square, Bonifacio Global City. I so loved the set-up that I can’t resist having my picture taken, imagining this was my lovely table.
Restaurateur Happy Ongpauco-Tiu made a cooking demo in the presence of moms from International School Manila. She treated the crowd to a sampling of exquisite dishes like this delicious Crab Fat Creme Brulee.
Next, she showed how to come up with steamed Salmon En Papillotte using Glad Cook n Bake Paper. Happy explained that the Glad Cook n’ Bake Paper is the perfect partner because it is made from a high- quality baking and cooking paper with a specially designed non-stick coating, and is heat resistant up to 230 degrees celcius. It also eliminates the need for fats and oils when cooking, enabling people to eat healthier with less mess.
The next venue for the GLAD Get-together was the bustling Mercato Centrale (also in BGC) where pretty host and actress Dimples Romana prepared her specialties like flavorful Steamed Fish and Shrimp & Sausage Boil.

The dishes that Dimples prepared in front of the audience used GLAD Aluminum Foil which she praised for its versatility, the ability to retain the moisture and minimizing mess when cooking.
Of course, let’s not forget the other noteworthy products like GLAD Cling Wrap, Press n’ Seal, Storage Bags, Freezer Bags and Gladware reusable, microwaveable containers guaranteed to be a big help to all busy moms in this peak time of holiday food preparation.
