For the past several years, the matches of Manny Pacquiao have somehow become an unofficial national holidays when thousands of Filipinos assemble in packed cinemas and public viewing venues and millions gather in front of their televisions to cheer on the People’s Champion.
But perhaps nothing could come close to the anticipation for his upcoming bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr. which has already been called the “Biggest Fight in Boxing History.”
That is why round 1 of Clara Ole’s Potluck Foodfest featured a “Game Night” themed party hosted by blogger Annalyn Jusay and her friends last Saturday, April 25, 2015, at the Lanai area of the Amvel Condominium in Paranaque City.
The event showcased several dishes, using Clara Ole’s various products, which you can easily prepare if you plan to host a Pacquiao viewing party at your home this Sunday.
For starters, Annalyn prepared “Pac-Balls,” (pork meatballs) and “Mayweather lollies,” (chicken lollipops) which can be dipped in either Clara Ole Guava Jelly or Strawberry Jam to give these appetizers an exchange of salty-sweet balance.
For those who prefer a healthier option, blogger Kenny Ngo, brought her specially made “Las Vegas Salad,”– mixed greens and macaroni topped generously with Clara Ole’s Thousand Island or Clara Ole’s Creamy Ranch Dressing.
To keep your energy levels up during those intense moments, Annalyn and her officemate Richard Saldana came up with two pasta suggestions.
Annalyn showcased her specialty which she dubbed the Kung Pao Counterpunch, spicy shrimp pasta made tastier and easier to prepare with Clara Ole Kung Pao sauce.
Richard meanwhile made Southpaw Pasta in honor of his favorite boxer using Clara Ole’s Three Cheese pasta sauce.
Finally for desserts, Annalyn’s friends contributed two sweet treats:
Arpee Lazaro’s Pound for Pound pudding topped in Clara Ole strawberry jam or Clara Ole Chocolate Syrup
Gene Yao prepared a colorful Fruit Kebab drizzled in Clara Ole’s Blueberry, Tutti Fruity or Strawberry syrup.
Celebrity host Amy Perez made a surprise appearance to share some #diskartips..
Chef Kat Laxamana taught guests on how to do simple plating.
“Game night” is the first of Clara Ole’s Potluck Foodfest, a series of eight themed potluck mini parties at condo residences. Clara Ole will be going around different condos of different personalities, who will then invite their neighbors, family, and friends to share their own signature dish using Clara Ole. Aside from recipes, they will get to share time and space-saving tips, hacks and helpful information to make fast-paced living a little bit easier.
More than just pasta sauces, the Potluck Foodfest will showcase other delicious and healthy dishes made with Clara Ole products such as dips n’ dressings, vinaigrettes, and marinades.
