Kraft Eden Cheese Keso de Gallo

I never thought this Christmas will be full of cheezyness not until last December 23, 2009, when I, together with some blogger friends, got to witness and join the first ever Keso de Gallo that was held at Fatima Church, Mandaue, Cebu City right after the Misa de Gallo.

Keso de Gallo is a nationwide event launched and organized by the peeps of Kraft Eden Cheese. The event coincides with the traditional Misa de Gallo, a Christmas tradition of Catholics where they to go to nine dawn mass. Nine dawn mass means nine different towns in the Philipppines: Bacolod City, Iloilo, Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Naga, Butuan City, Laoag, Cebu City and Pampanga.
Prior to the event Eden in cooperation with ABS-CBN foundation, NGOs and the local government units, organized a cook-off whereom the winning innovative dish of each town will be served to church goers after the Misa de Gallo.

Some of us had a chance to interview the one behind the winning dish here in Cebu, she’s Ms. Lorna Angcay, a grade 5 teacher (if memory serves me right) and teaching at San Nicolas Elementary School, Cebu City. Her winning dish is the Mixed Vegetable Maja Con Keso, it’s made of Cornstarch, Coconut Milk, Evaporated Milk, Refined Sugar, Moringa powder, Vanilla, Kraft Eden Cheese, Squash, Monggo, Carrots, Ube, and Kraft Eden Cheese Quickmelt.

Ms. Lorna Angcay said that a lot of her students don’t like eating vegetables, so she came up with an idea of making such a delicious and healthy food for them. Why not make a healthy Maja? As we all know, Maja is mostly composed of cornstarch, coconut milk, etc.

And yeah, there was a photo contest during the event but sadly i didn't won. haha!
