Best Food Forward 2014 Sneak Peek and Giveaway

Half the fun of eating is in discovering new things to eat. With over a hundred merchants vying for your attention at Best Food Forward, you can count on a lot of new discoveries and old favorites to fill your shopping bags. Now on its fourth year, this food fair will take place on October 11-12 at the Rockwell Tent in Makati.

We had a chance to check out a few of the merchants they’ll will be participating during that weekend and I have to say, we had out tummies full with all the yummy goodness. These include:

Love, Agnessi
One of the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve had a chance to try. Firm to touch yet pillowy with each bite, you’re treated to an intense chocolate flavor that makes you crave for more. The cheerful sisters behind Love, Agnessi insist that their cookies are best enjoyed with milk. We heartily agree.

Hands down, my (and Miffy’s) favorite

Big Dog’s Kitchen
Are Cubano Sandwiches the in thing now? If they are, we don’t mind. Big Dog’s Kitchen whips up a mean one. They’re making their debut at Best Food Forward so it will be a good time to check them out. Aside from the Cubano, my husband Pad swears by the General Mao, a flattened sandwich with an Asian flavor profile.

Are Cubano Sandwiches the newest craze? We hope so!

Voila! Jars
Love freshly baked cakes? Voila! makes it easier. These single-serve cake mixes just need a bit of water and a minute to a minute and a half in the microwave and, well, VOILA! CAEK. It’s surprisingly moist and fudgy for something baked in the microwave, so it would be awesome to stock up on this.

Looking for Christmas gifts and giveaways? Voila! would be perfect.

Lick the Spoon
And speaking of jars, Lick the Spoon offers a selection of bottled eats that just calls for freshly steamed rice. Loved the gourmet tuyo, tinapa in tomato sauce, and the insane bagoong variants! Think bagoong with tamarind, bagoong with spicy chocolate, and bagoong with mushrooms. Mindblowing, yes?

These bagoong variants are insane! A good kind of insane.

Kooky Pam
Red velvet fans should make Kooky Pam a visit because of her moist and chewy red velvet cookies. Complete with a requisite cream cheese stuffing, it’s a must-try for red velvet fans. And cookie fans. Heck, make that everyone!

I am confused. Is it cookie or cake? OM NOM NOM NOM NOM!

Gourmet Garage
This popular restaurant in Subic is making its way to Manila by way of their catering services. But that’s just the beginning, since they’re looking into opening a restaurant in the area, too.

No need to go to Subic!

Marmalade Kitchen
Cook at home or dine out? Marmalade Kitchen makes the choices equally delicious. Chef Aileen Anastacio’s studio kitchen doesn’t just offer delectable treats, she offers classes, too!

Feeding and teaching. Perfect combo.

• Kewpie Mayonnaise
Aside from homegrown merchants, Best Food Forward also features international brands like Kewpie. This Japanese mayo is my mayonnaise of choice. And no, it’s not just something you use for salad and dips. It’s also great for cooking. (Case in point, Tofu Sisig.)

Kewpie Ichiban!
