Create Magic For Your Cooking

Paranaque, Philippines (PressExposure) November 16, 2009 -- Create magic for your cooking. Innovate with the newest recipes that are healthy and easy. Have you heard the word about “Guisado vs Ginisa?”

Two homemakers, Dona Rikada and Mrs. Guisado had an exciting showdown during a cook –off. Dona Rikada represents traditional homemakers who believe that good tomato-based dishes only come when you saute real onions, garlic and tomatoes while Mrs. Guisado is a modern housewife who uses the new UFC Tomato Sauce Guisado. “Let’s put it to a taste,” was Dona Rikada’s challenge to Mrs. Guisado.

Chef Jeremy and Chef Nino did the cooking.

Audiences were brought wondering who would win – mothers, kids, foody at heart, cooks, and just everyone.

All time and special recipes authenticate that sauces give elegance to food. The rich and healthy flavor of tomatoes bring out an appealing luscious taste of bread, meat, vegetables, fish, and pasta in different parts of the world like France, Italy, United States, Mexico, India, and the Philippines, among others.

Tomato, Tomato Sauce, Tomato Sauce Guisado

Tomato is the top source of vitamin A and C. It contains significant amounts of dietary fiber, beta-carotene, iron, lycopene, niacin, potassium, and thiamin. In the olden times, tomato seeds were said to be seeds of divination.

Tomato sauce comes from tomatoes. It colors the food red, and as children like it the sauce dresses the food in superb thick taste like real tomatoes, “the taste children would love because it has no bitter compared with raw vegetables,” asserts a mother.

In some countries tomato sauce is also known as “ketsup.” For us Filipinos, we mix our tomato sauce with recipes like marinara, spaghetti, pochero, menudo, caldereta, and home cooked sardines. The sauce blends with the finest ingredients , spices, and herbs.

Both homemakers, Dona Rikada and Mrs. Guisado agree that traditional cooking goes well over time, however, the present time creates innovative cooking for a budget meal, quick menu, and a “true guisado taste.”

Tomato Sauce Guisado: Trusted Ally in the Kitchen

UFC’s newest Tomato Sauce Guisado comes out of the market to be a trusted ally in the kitchen. It is the first and only tomato sauce that’s already been sautéed with real garlic, onions, and tomatoes to especially blend and capture the true guisado taste. It is convenient to use and gives afritada, menudo, mechado the complete and savory flavor of “ginisa”.

The question is: Did you see the cooking magic? Try.

Judges in the Cook–off event weren’t really able to tell the difference. “Magkasing-sarap talaga,” many of them said. Staff, guests, kids from Pinewood Foundation, and the crowd around Market Market joined the performances of Dona Ricada and Mrs. Guisado. It featured Raymond Lauchengco, Manilyn Reynes, Jolina Magdangal, Jan Nieto and was hosted by Janice de Belen. The event organizer is Almed Garcia of Backroom, Inc.
