A Filipino chef and food advocate recently urged the public to help mango farmers from Luzon.
Through his Facebook post, Chef Jam Melchor, who is also the founder of the Philippine Culinary Heritage Movement, has made the following appeal.
“Food industry friends, we need to help our mango farmers! Sweet, velvety, soft and scandalously succulent – we have the best mangoes in the world!
This season, they are producing about 100 tons per week. One truck can contain 4 tons. They can give it at P25/K if 4 tons ang order. Export grade is at P50/k. You may call DA Main office (AMAS) at (02) 925 3795 so they can link you directly to these mango producers.
Remember that picture of tons and tons of locally grown tomatoes dumped by farmers in Laguna in a waste dumpsite last year was very troubling. For one, the farmers toiled to grow those tomatoes and they got nothing for their effort.
Those tomato farmers figured they have nothing more to lose and decided to keep their pride by dumping their produce instead. That deprived the traders of the opportunity to make their unholy profits at their expense.
As far as treats and desserts go, you can never count out the popularity of a great cookie. An array of cookies already exists, and creative bakers find new ways to tweak existing recipes to create something more delicious and scrumptious. Just as wonderful are gourmet cookies atlanta, and if you live within a certain distance from a gourmet cookie shop, they can be delivered to your home or office, fresh.
Here are three gourmet cookies to consider trying.
Almond Tea Cakes
According to famous culinary expert Paula Deen, almond tea cakes have existed since Southerners have been around. These tea cake treats are great for pairing with tea or coffee after a wonderful lunch or during a mid-day break. The basic ingredients include all purpose flour, baking power and butter as well as eggs and sugar. Then, each baker can include some additional add-ons like almond extract and lemon zest.
Almond tea cakes are hearty enough that two will suffice. If you have a sweet tooth, you may desire more, of course.
You have your basic peanut butter cookie, and then, you have your gourmet peanut butter cookie. Gourmet peanut butter cookies include additional flavors like chocolate, fudge and chocolate chips. The inclusion of these flavors that complement peanut butter is a wonderful way to receive a satisfying taste of sweetness, and more, without needing to eat more than one cookie. If one cookie can deliver that much satisfaction to your dessert craving, it means you do not need to feel guilty, afterwards.
Gluten Free of the Day
Some bakeries do not sell enough gluten-free gourmet cookies to bake several types on a daily basis. They do, however, have enough customers that would like at least one gluten-free option each day. The daily variety of a gourmet gluten-free cookie of the day gives you the opportunity to try something new and not get bored.
The simplicity of cookies, even gourmet cookies, is great for your budget and taste buds. Gourmet cookies atlanta includes almond tea cakes, peanut butter as well as gluten-free.
