World’s Cheesiest Event Ever!

Have you ever been in a room full of cheese? It’s like being inside Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory but only cheese. WOOOOOOW!

That’s what I felt when I entered the Big Dome last December 14, 2009 for the Kraft Eden Cheese YUMM (Your Ulam Mas Masarap) World Record Event.

Co-hosted by Miss Jackie Lou Blanco, this event targeted to prepare 5,000 dishes using Kraft Eden Cheese.

And luckily, as I enter the Big Dome, I was amazed and shocked as I scanned the whole place filled with long tables covered with white linens and placed above them where thousands of white plates where different dishes were presented.

Imagine, the B-I-G D-O-M-E.

From pastas, gourmets, salads, and pastries and even up to soups, it was indeed an eventful night filled with lotsa, lotsa food and wonderful chefs, students, cheese lovers, food bloggers and many more.

With six participating culinary schools amely Regina Carmeli, St. Paul College, Centro Escolar University, Emilio Aguinaldo College, La Consolacion College and Arellano University, they made this event more meaningful and heart-warming as they battled it up for the best and outstanding Noche Buena feast with Eden Cheese still as their base ingredient.

On the other hand, while the said universities were heating their pots and pans and decorating their centrepieces, Magsaysay Institute of Hospitality and Culinary Arts (MIHCA) was the premier culinary school who contributed the most of the research and student manpower in preparing and cooking these 5,000 dishes.

At the end of this event, they prepared not only 5,000 dishes but a whooping almost 6,000+ dishes in a day! That’s more than a thousand dishes compare to the Guinness World Record’s Most Number of Dishes on Display, In a Single Day title holder, India, with only 4,668 last 2007.

Now who says it is impossible?

Congratulations to Kraft Eden Cheese for this very successful event.
I hope that we can keep this title for more than a year, too!
