Pasta has become a Filipinos favorite. Any feast would not be complete without this dish and families have had a lot of good memories together with pasta. If you are a pasta lover like me, you'll know that this month of October is the World's Pasta Month.
In the country, Dona Elena AlDente Pasta has been celerating this occassion with Filipino pasta lovers, enthusiasts, home cooks and aspiring chefs alike with hefty appetite for pasta. The festivity was held in SM Mall of Asia last October 9 and was truly a feel of Italian Pasta!
The event features an Italian food fair, reminiscent of walking thru the food streets of Italy. We were given a Pasta Festa passport where we were asked to get it stamped by each booth to get a freebie. It was an exciting idea as we, with my companion Mommy arge, were able to go around the event and enjoy the yummy treats and games from all the booth.
Here are some of the booths we went to:
The official program started at around 3pm with a Pasta Art Workshop which demonstrated making art out of pasta shells. I did not know there was such a thing and it really was something exciting I could try or include in some of our parties at home. The fun was continued through different games with the audience like the Pasta eating contest, and other Pasta parlor games. Everyone came home full and happy with prizes and freebies. Of course, the festivity will not be complete without a learning-filled cooking demonstration from Chef Ben abernardo of Cafe aroyal and Pasta along with Chef Roberto Bellini. They highlighted that a great pasta dish starts with using a good pasta.
The fun day of merriment made possible by Dona Elena Al Dente Pasta was a success. It was made even more successful with all the media partners including Mommy Bloggers Philippines (www.mommybloggersphilippines.com).
