Last November 10, 2009, I blogged about Kraft Eden Cheese’s attempt to prepare 5,000 dishes out of cheese to beat the previous Guinness world record of 4,668 dishes set by India. And so, December 14 has come and hundreds of chefs and student-chefs from different culinary schools in the Philippines converged at the Araneta Coliseum to prepare 5,000 dishes with Kraft Eden Cheese.
Magsaysay Institute of Hospitality and Culinary Arts spearheaded the event while other schools including University of Regina Carmeli, St. Paul’s University, Centro Escolar University, Emilio Aguinaldo College, La Consolacion College, and Arellano University.
At the end of the day, the Philippines has beaten the previous Guinness world record of 4,668 dishes set by India with 5,845 dishes cooked and made with Kraft Eden Cheese. Beating the world isn’t really impossible as our country boasts of various culinary traditions from its 7,107 islands and of course, dishes are made extra special with Kraft Eden Cheese.
“During these challenging times, it is important to remember not what we have lost but what we still have as a nation,” Alex Tacderas, Category Marketing Manager for Cheese and Spoonables, Kraft Foods Philippines said.
“We hold in or hands the innate Filipino creativity and love for food which, when put together, can empower our pride for our country.”
