Learning to bake "Back To School" treats!
For many years now, I have tagged myself as a foodie. I would eat bread, pizza and cakes, but I never really appreciated how they are made. But last June 26, Aboitiz food subsidiary, Pilmico, taught us the importance of benefits of healthy and tasty treats for kids by holding a "Back to School " program, at the Pilmico Research and Training Bakery in ParaƱaque Metro Manila. That day, I made bread. From scratch. How cool is that?

My first time to make cupcakes
I'm one of those people who could not cook to save her life. I had one cooking lesson months ago, and I fairly learned to do so. Thinking ahead, I wanted to know more, so I could prepare delicious treats to my future kids.

But did you know that according to the data gathered by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (UN-FAO), the status of micronutrient malnutrition in our country is a cause for concern. Through this program Pilmico highlights easy meals with good nutritional benefits at pocket-friendly prices.

Pilmico’s Research and Training Bakery in BF Homes, ParaƱaque will help enthusiasts and potential food entrepreneurs learn how to bake fresh, tasty and healthy pastries, led by Chef Cynthia Durian.

Kneading is fun!

It was really exciting for me to learn how to bake because it would be an achievement unlocked. Together with my cooking partner, Jen, made Tiny Chicken Triangles, Mini Ham and Cheese Quiche, Garlic / Cheese Sticks, Pizza Pinwheels and Chocolate Cupcake with Marshmallow icing.

What I really appreciated through this workshop, is making the dough from scratch. I learned how kneading by hand is hard, but rewarding, once you get to finish making the dough. They also have Bakery Management training for those who are interested in putting up their own baking-related businesses.
