Celebrate Cheese as part of the Filipino Way of Life
Today is National Cheese Day! This internet phenomenon may have unclear roots. But what’s clear is everyone can relate to celebrating the deliciousness and creaminess that cheese, particularly the country’s #1 cheese, Eden brings to the dishes we serve our families.
Today is the best day to ask, what’s your favorite way to enjoy Eden cheese? Do you like to eat it in the morning for breakfast, with the solid combination of freshly toasted pan de sal? Or maybe you like to mark your birthdays as many do, with cheese grated and melted over Mom’s or Lola’s delicious Pinoy Spaghetti. Better yet, you might enjoy cheese when it’s part of traditional fiesta dishes you devour with rice, like Tita’s Caldereta, Mechado or your Ate’s special Buko Salad and Leche Flan for dessert. There are so many ways and occasions we use Eden cheese in our daily lives, that it has become part of our traditions and cultures much like the dishes we love. Whichever way you like to enjoy Eden cheese, you can be assured of its deliciousness and creaminess every time.
Shares renowned Food Journalist and “Adobo Queen” Nancy Reyes Lumen, “Cheese is such a wonderful food that you can’t outgrow it. It is indispensable to our culture and daily lives as Filipinos. Cheese is one of the earliest foods we taste and the delight of it stays on from infancy to adulthood. We have grown up with it and it has been part of our lives all these years. Cheese is practically a “no-fail” ingredient…you can even burn it and it still tastes good. We love cheese because it blends creaminess into our taste buds. It is comfort food!”
“Eden has been helping moms make her dishes more delicious with creaminess and goodness for the past 38 years,” shares Kristen Mendoza, Brand Manager for Eden cheese, manufactured by Mondelez Philippines. “Since the brand was launched in 1981 until now, moms can continue to enjoy the quality and deliciousness she and perhaps her Mother or Grandmother have loved for many years. It’s a promise we make to Moms, that when she uses Eden cheese for the dishes she serves her family, she is able to choose goodness for them.”
