I love to cook, there’s always a good reason or celebration to do so. When cooking, there’s always the ingredient to thinks of. I always make sure that the food I prepared are not just delicious but nutritious at the same time. It’s a nice feeling if you know you are serving what’s healthy to your family and love ones.
Last August 26, 2011 at the Magsaysay Institute for Hospitality and Culinary Arts (MICHA), I was one of the lucky food bloggers who discover a new kind of delectable tomato sauce.
Dole Philippines, know to be the world’s largest producer and marketer of high quality fresh fruits and vegetables and packaged food once again gave it’s consumer a new product. The Dole Tomato Sauce, a new healthy food product added to their long list of wide array of quality products for health and nutrition.
DOLE Tomato Sauce is naturally rich in lycopene, it's thick flavorful sauce is generously blended with the finest herbs and spices to make my everyday dishes truly extra ordinary.Cooked tomatoes, found in Dole Tomato Sauce has up to five times more of the antioxidant Lycopene than fresh tomatoes. Dole Tomato Sauce is rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C and is a good source of Vitamin K, while Lycopene protects the cells of our body from harmful free radicals. Vitamins A, C and K promotes good eyesight, builds resistance to infection and healthy blood functions. What more can you ask for, I have delicious meals that got loads of essential vitamins for my happy and healthy family.
To heat things up that night, a Great Dole Cool-Off between bloggers were held. Five bloggers, including myself were given a chance to able to try first-hand the world-class consistency of Dole’s line of tomato sauces. Enticing aroma filled the airs as we showed off our cooking skills and battled it out to make the most mouth-watering dish.
Chef Jeremy and Dole representative sure did find it hard to judge the cook-off, but Enzo of JuanManila Express did surely beat us with his own version of Cherry Tomato and Eggplant Ragu Penne
