Many foreign breads are popping out in different malls but let’s admit that local panaderia favorites like warm pandesal and fluffy ensaymada still hold a special place in Filipinos hearts. This love for local food is precisely what inspired Pilmico to team up with Max’s Corner Bakery and call on the youth to join the Tinapay Natin Pinoy Baking Competition.
It aims to inspire the youth to take part in honoring and revitalizing our colorful bread culture, comes to its colourful culmination at the Grand Final held at Treston International College at Bonifacio Global City last October 13, 2016.
According to Pilmico Brand and Quality Manager Pamela Lynne Liwag, exciting prizes await the winning team whose entries will be evaluated based on correct professional preparation, presentation of bread story and general impression, technique and practicality, and taste.

I admit all of their creations are really good as we had a chance to personally try it. My personal favorite was the Cagayan Pastel, it maybe a simple bread but the fillings will make you want to eat more. I had no doubt that they nailed the Grand Prize.
