Grab Caravan visits Cavite

FILIPINOS love to gather over food for any occasion and also have a strong love for community. This is why this year, Grab Philippines will bring together Filipinos and their love for good food through the Grab Caravan, an on-ground celebration that invites everyone to grab a bite from their city’s best local food selections. After a successful leg in Rizal, Grab Caravan is set to visit Cavite on June 4, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., at the Activity Center of Main Square Mall, Bacoor, bringing Cavite’s best dishes from homegrown restaurants. Meanwhile, GrabFood is extending Indie Eats, it’s latest merchant discoverability program, nationwide.

Quorn promotes Meat-Free Monday

RESHAPING the current food consumption of Filipinos is not an easy journey. Meat-Free Mondays recognizes this challenge and attempts to break down this barrier by introducing the concept of taking it one day at a time in recalibrating one’s dietary demands. Starting the week with a meat-free alternative is a good step in slowly embracing the meat-free lifestyle, in the hopes of producing more demand for healthy and earth-friendly eating habits. That is where Monde Nissin’s Quorn comes in. Quorn meals are derived from a natural fungus called Fusarium venenatum that produces the company’s mycoprotein. Producing Quorn mycoprotein takes 95% less carbon dioxide (CO2) than a typical beef mince. This makes Quorn products a healthier and sustainable alternative to meat that can address the food demand of a growing global population. Quorn has also been recognized by a third-party carbon footprint certification for achieving the Carbon Trust Footprint of 60% of its products. The Meat-Free Mondays initiative encourages the public to take the first step towards living a more sustainable and eco-friendlier dietary lifestyle. Quorn’s variety of meat alternatives includes Vegan Fishless Fingers, Southern Fried Bites, Crispy Nuggets and many more. Supermarkets carrying Quorn products can be found here:

Jacob’s Creek suggests food pairings

AUSTRALIAN wine company Jacob’s Creek is giving suggestions what to eat with their wine. Their Shiraz Cabernet makes a good balance between bolder cheeses, but also grilled steak, pizza, or tomato-based pasta dishes. Their merlot, meanwhile, is said to go well with mushrooms. As for the Cabernet Sauvignon, they suggest having it with either roast beef or lamb. For lighter fare, they have the Sauvignon Blanc, which goes well with a salad by complementing the herbaceous notes in each other. Meanwhile, their Moscato goes well with a fish, shellfish, and oysters. Finally, their Chardonnay is a welcome pairing for chicken.
