Your best food forward



This time of the year when you want to give your friends, family and loved ones something very special, food is always safe and practical. And yet, if you think that it’s easy to decide on what foodstuff to give them, you’re wrong because every store and supermarket will always have a profusion of choices that may not be good enough for the holidays.

Giving, after all, is both about the giver and the intended recipient. If he or she is special to you, someone you want to impress or someone you want to repay back for their many kindnesses, you won’t just buy something that’s first available or that happens to be most prominently displayed on supermarket shelves. You’ll of course want something that is delicious, extraordinary, healthful, safe and of high quality. And if you’re the kind who patronizes your very own, you would of course want something that is “made in the Philippines.”

On the other hand, you’ll also want your gift to speak for yourself. How much of it reflects the kind of person you would like others to recognize in you? Are you the kind who gives run-off-the-mill gifts, one of those standard gifts that show your lack of creativity and affection for the receiver? Of course, you would want to put your best food forward if only to show nothing less than the best will do for you as a giver.

When it comes to gourmet food, did you know that there is today a homegrown brand that is a favorite among those who are used to the good life and good food? Interestingly, the brand, Delimondo, is also popular among balikbayans who make sure to bring home Delimondo’s various food products — canned meat, bottled dishes, cured meat, sauces and spreads — because, well, they spell good taste and, yes, class. Now, eating like the Joneses need not be very expensive.
