#TinapayNatin, to hone young Filipinos’ bread making skills
To emphasize the rich Filipino tradition of bread-making and to celebrate our food culture, Pilmico, in partnership with Max’s Corner, organized a nationwide bread competition, named as the Tinapay Natin Pinoy Bread Baking Competition, Manila Times reported.
“Bread is a reflection of our identity and our people’s history and affinity to food and agriculture,” Carlyn Trota-Salud, president of Max’s Bakeshop Inc. said in the report.
“With a wide variety of breads enjoyed by Filipinos around the nation, each region definitely has a native bread—a Tinapay Natin—that tells a unique story about its origin and its journey.”
Pilmico Chief Resource Officer Maribeth Marasigan said that they’re aiming to ignite the passion of Pinoy bakers.
“We thought of an initiative anchored on encouraging Filipino bakers to pursue and share their passion for bread and baking, and that’s how Tinapay Natin became a reality,” she said.
The contest is open to all interested you participants who are into baking traditional bread or modern bread. The organizers invited the youth to encourage them to add new twists to Philippine bread making, the art can be further developed. The contest invites all students aged 18 to 35-years old from the Philippines, Manila Times said.
“This isn’t just about making another delicious baked creation. Since each bread carries a distinct story of their own, each group will also be tasked with weaving a tale that expresses how their creation is a representation of a region and its culture,” Marasigan explained.
