Purefoods Fiesta Ham... Star of the Noche Buena!

My event: November 24, 2011

Purefoods Fiesta Ham
Via Mare Oyster Bar
Rockwell Center

Filipinos love to eat! When special occasion arises, we usually prepare the best for our family members and guests. Now that the holiday season is here, only one Christmas ham will be the star of Noche Buena... Purefoods Fiesta Ham!

Purefoods Fiesta Ham... Star of Noche Buena

Every year, during Christmas season, I received at least one Fiesta Ham... no kidding! Apparently, it is the # 1 ham in the Philippines. In fact, according to the most recent survey of TNS Philippines, Purefoods Christmas hams are preferred by 8 out of 10 moms.

In the recent event that I have attended which was held in Via Mare Oyster Bar, none other than Ms. Glenda Baretto, the owner of the oyster bar herself, prepared a sumptuous meal for everyone using the Purefoods Fiesta Ham as the main ingredient.

Shown in the photo above together with Ms. Baretto (from left to right) are Purefoods Brand Manager, Christine Jacob- Sandejas, Danica Sotto- Pingris, Barbie Almabis and Suzi Entrata. It was Christine who hosted the event.

Feast your eyes on the food on our table...

Ham Canape

I was really hungry so I ate 3 of these ham canape ; p The caramelized pineapple combined with Purefods Fiesta Ham topping made this appetizer really irresistible. 

Fruits and Vegetable Ham Salad

I have not eaten asparagus in such a long time, this is surely a welcome treat for me. You can change the kind of vegetable wrapped by ham or replace it with fruit instead. Whatever you decide, your salad will still be a healthy and yummy treat for your family and guests.

carved Glazed Bone- In Leg of Ham, anyone?

Glazed Bone- In Leg of Ham with Candied Sweet Potato & Gravy

This dish is really salivating as Ms Baretto related to us how she painstakingly prepared it by marinating the ham overnight with pineapple juice.  I was even tempted to asked for a second serving ; p

Incidentally, Ms. Tina Tagle- who doesn't know her, right?!- was present during the said event. I coaxed Annie Ringor of Bridges PR to introduced me to Tina. Suffice to say, I was very happy with the photo and conversation I had with her. Thank you, Annie!
