Hey Mumshies! It’s me again, your millennial mother on social media!
Creating a home for your family is a memorable experience for every mom. Currently, we are busy redecorating our house into making it feel more of a home rather than a house. One way to spread love in a household is by having delicious home cooked meals for your family. Before I was married, I couldn’t cook a meal if it was to save my own life and relied on my mother to cook meals for me, but being a wife changes your perspective in things and you learn the importance of food in one’s relationship. It’s not just about nourishment or needs to be fed, but the feeling of a well-prepared meal is what some husbands crave for. Growing up, I have always been fascinated by cooking and tried my best to help my mother prepare meals. I would chop vegetables, separate malunggay leaves from its branch, or even toasting bread just to be involved in my mother’s kitchen. She was very specific with the tools she used in cooking and I remember her telling me that from the pan to the stove everything must be precise. Like any other household, we had a La Germania kitchen set in our home. This is very common among mothers because La Germania has served so many families over the years.
Growing up and feeding my own family, I only trust the best stove I know and it is La Germania. You can never go wrong with their products because not only is it safe to use, it will also last a lifetime. I own my own La Germania stove and oven set as well as a stand-alone oven for my small business.
La Germania hosted a special treat to all mothers by having its first- ever roadshow to the city last September 8-9, 2018 at the Activity Center of Abreeza Mall. Not your typical show, the Welcome Home mobile exhibit featured the wide range of La Germania products and allowed both home cooks and chefs to get a glimpse and feel of what an efficient kitchen range could do for a household.
To start the mobile exhibit, brand representatives and advocates started the affair with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the Pop- up Gallery. After which, guests and La Germania followers were guided through various workshops and demos. The brand ambassadors explained and compared the different types of units that were practical to every household.
Cooking and Baking Demonstration
A house is never a home without a perfectly homecooked meal. Filipinos are known for their fondness for cooking and drinking which made La Germania pay tribute to every mom in a household through a demonstration of “lutong bahay” with a twist. A cooking demo led by celebrity chef Jeremy Favia of TV5’s Chef vs. Mom fame came to demonstrate how La Germania is the best partner in the kitchen. The workshop themes “the art of cooking beautifully” taught Welcome Home participants how to spice up what was considered as traditional Filipino meals La Germania style.
Simple dishes were made better with tips and tricks by Celebrity Chef Jeremy as he introduced sumptuous Filipino dishes that can be found in every Filipino recipe book. Recipes included a “Three Cheese Macaroni” and “Chicken Caldereta Hash” which were a blast to make! These dishes, which are notches higher than the usual viands served in most households, could definitely tickle anybody’s palate.
A baking demonstration was also done headed by chef consultant and food stylist Karina Rodriguez. She is best known for her exclusive cooking and baking classes for kids and adults. Welcome participants from ages six to twelve enjoyed baking cupcakes with their moms! I had a first-hand experience with this workshop, and my 3 years old loved decorating his cupcakes with the help of Karina Rodriguez’s tips on proper decoration. Welcome Home participants, particularly kids, learned how to properly use an oven, and bake and decorate cupcakes. They also took home their baked masterpieces as well as branded hats and aprons as souvenirs.
Heartwarming home crafts
In addition to the cooking and baking demos, two other workshops were offered to participants. These included a Bento making workshop facilitated by Russet Cainglet and a Paper Flower making class headed by April San Pedro.
Bento making is the art of packing a lunch box filled with food shaped into colorful images and cartoon characters so that they’re especially attractive for little kids. La Germania workshop participants tackled the various techniques to make these fun-packed meals tempting for even the pickiest eaters.
After making edible art, La Germania guests also learned how to make beautiful paper blooms that could be used to decorate their homes or apply in various craft projects.
There are dozens of ways you can make your hearth and home welcoming. Through La Germania’s Welcome Home mobile exhibit, you and your family members can find out how you can make your household warmer, more delightful and inviting.
