9 Days of Cheese-mas with Keso de Gallo in Cebu

By Miong - Monday, December 28, 2009

It may be the season of gift-giving or Santa Claus but if there’s on thing Filipinos can relate to more than anything, it’s the food.
That’s why this time of the year, the spotlight is, more than ever, on the kitchen creativity of females who are tasked to concoct sumptuous Noche Buena dishes for the whole family. For most Pinoys, togetherness and merriment during Christmas means bonding over yummy feasts in a roomful of family and friends. Or that was how it used to be until the recent onslaught of typhoons that destroyed homes and took lives of many Filipinos.
 But even if a lot of people may have lost properties or loved ones, the innate optimism still lies in the Pinoy blood and this inspired Kraft Eden Cheese to bring back the joy and faith of Filipinos during the festive occasion. The well-loved cheese brand launched the Keso De Gallo – a nationwide event coinciding with the traditionally celebrated Misa De Gallo (a Catholic Christmas tradition wherein nine dawn masses are held starting December 16, which will culminate on Christmas Eve).

“We may have lost a lot during the typhoons but the strong winds and torrential rains are not enough to dampen of faith and optimism for these Holidays,” says Alex Tacderas, Category Marketing Manager for Cheese and Spoonables, Kraft Foods Philippines. “That’s why Kraft Eden Cheese is bringing Keso de Gallo, to multiply the joy of this season for families nationwide because we believe that Christmas deserves a longer feast and merry-making.”
