’Tis the season to eat, eat, and eat some more! It’s the only time of the year we all have license to indulge. And with all the food finds in bazaars and food markets, it’s tough to find something your loved ones have never tasted. But we can try!
While we cannot assure you that your loved ones have never tried it, we can guarantee that these goodies cannot be found in supermarkets and department stores. Enough of that, let’s get shopping now!
Here are 12 yummy food gift suggestions:
1. Macarons from Alchemy
Perhaps the prettiest treats to look at from any store window are French macarons. Through the Yummy Eats 2013, we discovered super delish macarons at affordable prices. Must-tries are the Salted Caramel (P35/piece) and the Dark Chocolate Ganache (P40/piece).
Other flavors are available, too. Regular flavors like Salted Caramel, Chai Spice, Banana Walnut, and Peanut Caramel are P35/piece; and premium flavors like Mint Chocolate Ganache, Passion Fruit Milk Chocolate, Coffee Caramel Ganache, Green Tea White Chocolate, Dark Chocolate Ganache and Raspberry White Chocolate are priced at P40/piece.

2. Churros with a Twist with Amanda’s Hot Chocolate Dip from Pio’s Kitchen
Mostly famous for their wonderful-looking and uber-yummy paellas, Pio’s Kitchen makes mean churros, too. Its churros are stuffed with Manchego cheese, deep-fried, rolled into powdered sugar, and served with Chef Chin Gallego’s grandma’s recipe for rich hot chocolate. The chocolate dip is made of carabao’s milk and ground chocolate, made using a wooden rod called a batirol until it forms into the perfect thick consistency.
P125/set (2 pieces churros and a shot of hot chocolate)
