The Dessert Comes First Christmas Gift List: A Food Bazaar

posted by in Uncategorized

A food bazaar on November 12, 2011. All of my favorite food purveyors. 150 tickets available.

As the holidays approach, I’m always asked what gifts I’ll be giving. I always give gifts and my gifts are always food. During the holidays especially, familiar and new incredible edibles gleam like a constellation, and decision-making proves to be a delicious difficulty.

This year, I want to do something different. And so, with great thanks to Fully Booked and Selecta-Hershey’s, I present:


The Dessert Comes First Christmas Gift List: A Food Bazaar.
November 12, 2011
2-6pm
The Top Shelf
Fully Booked Bonifacio High Street

This is a special event where I’ve gathered 18 of my favorite quality food purveyors who offer an exceptional selection of both savory and sweet. Some of them will be familiar to you since they are stars in their own right and have already been featured here on DCF; others are brand new, creative sparks ready to set the local food scene alight with their creations.

Here they are, The Stars of my Dessert Comes First Christmas Gift List:


Chef Mara de la Rama of Dessert du Jour
TWG Teas
Chef Ed Quimson & Booj Supe of M Cuisine, Inc.
Chef Raul Matias of Machiavelli Chocolates
Chef Sau del Rosario of Gourmet Garage
Chef Buddy Trinidad of Park Avenue Desserts
Chef Gene Gonzales of Café Ysabel & Pastelleria Mallorca
Chef Arnold Bernardo of Deep Dips
John Sta. Cruz of Cake Planet
Perry & Ria Jocson of The Vanilla Company
Melbourne Prime
Charley Braga
Chef Millet Soberano of Bean & Baker
Ian Carandang of Sebastian’s Ice Cream
Tina Diaz of Taza y Platito
Addie Wijangco
Brusges Chocolates
Jenny Silayan of Fudgies
You’ll get to know more about these individual purveyors and the products they’ll be showcasing in my upcoming feature pieces here on DCF. I’ll tell you now that the variety of food and products available at this event will tantalize taste and present you with items you’ll be proud to give as presents at Christmas.

The theme of this food bazaar is Sampling & Selling. As is the trademark of all of my DCF events, there will be an abundance of sizable samples for tasting from each of my purveyors. And since this is a food bazaar, there will also be selling of most of these items too. I call this event my Christmas Gift List because these are the same people I will buy my Christmas gifts from. All in all, a tremendous event to herald the holiday season.

Game to go? Here are the details you need to know:

A word to you, my valued reader:
This is my third event of 2011, an incredible feat now that I look back on it, to have organized that many events in one year. It began with a bang with the 6th Anniversary Party of Dessert Comes First, followed by the Dessert Comes First Food Photo Workshop and now this, my Dessert Comes First Christmas Gift List. I have a smaller event in the pipeline slated for early next year but this is the last event of this magnitude that I will organize for some time. There are other things that need my attention next year so if you’ve been meaning to attend one of my events, this is the time to do it.

I truly hope to see you on November 12. Let’s go Christmas shopping (and eating) together!

    And Lori, if you ever need help organizing these events, I’m sure your devoted readership would be more than willing to pitch in. I know I would!

    Hi Mahar,
    I hope so too. :) At least this one entails just standing in line and not having to send in a photo.

  • Considering that the 29th is the start of a reallly long weekend, this is certainly going to be a test of loyalty for DCF readers (hehe). But that’s what representatives are for, right?

    Charley’s name looks verrry familiar ;)

    As Cookie Monster would say: Much omnomnomnom! Ahahaha.

    The calendar says “Yes! You can go!”.

  • Lori! I hope to make it to this one! Your tie-ups with Canon materialized just as I had resigned (I met with you in Rockwell some time in 2010?), so it’s great to have another chance to make it to a DCF event.

    Can we bring our cameras the event? I imagine the offerings will be a joy to photograph.

    Congratulations and good luck, Lori!

    Lori Reply:

    Hi Maro,
    I hope to meet you again. Working with Canon has been terrific. All the food at this event will truly be camera-worthy.

  • Is there a way to reserve two tickets? I can make payments ahead of time. I live in the province and I can make the trip for the event, but I just don’t know if I can make a special trip just to buy tickets. I know this is a really awesome event and I’d really love to go. Thanks. (BIG SMILEY FACE HERE)

    Lori Reply:

    Santos,
    Thanks for your interest in my event but I need to be fair to everyone. Reservations aren’t accepted. I’m sure you must have a Manila-based relative who can buy tickets for you.

  • Hi Ms. Lori! I would love to join your event! May I ask if everyone is required to be at the venue by 2pm? Or could anyone with tickets come and go within 2-6? I have a class until 2:30 but I will willingly fly to BHS just to taste those treats :)

    P.S. My boyfriend and I have had many dates thanks to your food finds :)

    The event will be ongoing from 2-6pm. As long as you have a ticket, you can come and go as you please.
