Unilever Food Solution's Culinary Festival 2014

The Culinary Festival 2014 hosted by Unilever Food Solutions (UFS) was a huge success attended by about 500 hundred chefs, restaurateurs, and caterers from the Philippine food industry. Unilever Food Solutions is the food service arm, maker of my favorite brands Knorr, Lady’s Choice, Best Foods and Lipton.

There were food kiosks offering delightful meals such as this fresh and healthy green salad with Lady's Choice salad dressing of your choice. I had more than the usual serving, the greens were crunchy, dressing tasty.

Chef Robby Goco (Green Pastures and Cyma) presented Philippine food trends today which I find very interesting and helpful for foodie and blogger like me who also features food on this blog. Some of the insights presented were about Filipino food, Chefs as food endorsers, 5-ingredient dishes, purity of ingredients. The 3rd wave coffee was also discussed. The current movement in producing high quality coffee.
