Yummy Finds at YUMMY Eats

Celebrating Filipinos' love for good, yummy food, YUMMY magazine held its first-ever cooking, eating, and food fair entitled YUMMY Eats yesterday, May 21, 2011 at the NBC Tent, The Fort. The event, a brainchild of YUMMY's associate publisher, and fellow food-blogger, FrannyWanny - Fran Ang, featured 31 specially handpicked food brands under one roof.

"For one whole day, our readers got the chance to treat their taste buds with a mix of delicious items - from savory to sweet, from coffees and teas, to a lot of ice cream!" she explained.


One of the highlights was the Hunt's Culinary Cook-off, which involved students from different schools to display their culinary wits and techniques in a one-hour battle to the top. I saw an old schoolmate who's now Hunt's endorser, Luch Zanirato.


Out of the 31 concessionaires, excluding my old time favorites: Big Daddy's Chicken, Pipino by Pino Resto Bar, and Starbucks, here are my top yummy finds from YUMMY Eats:
