Our trip to Camarines Norte – DateinDate 2014 last summer was truly awesome, everything was squeezed into three days of fun & adventure and lotsa Food! One of our stops was the food processing plant run by the LGU, and we were fortunate enough to witness how the famous “Pili Roll” was done.
The one in charge of the Processing Center explaining how the scrumptious pastry is done.
The invited bloggers from Bicol and Manila flock over to the pastry table to get a good shot of the procedure as it is being demonstrated by the resource persons of the Daet Food Processing Center.
After spreading the sweet Pili filling onto the chiffon cake, it is then rolled and wrapped in plastic and is now ready to be delivered to the outlets. After the demo, all of us were ushered into the kitchen to witness yet another presentation using Daet’s famous tasty product – The Pineapple!
As how it was explained, the ingredients used here are also grown by the processing center along with subsidized farmers around the province. The fresh pineapples are made into jam and that’s what is put on those wee pie crusts with Pili Nut Toppings which is a great combination-Sweet and Crunchy!
I also tried their Pineapple Juice made from the “Formosa” Variety or “Butterball” because of its diminutive size is considered as the sweetest pineapple or as Mayor Tito Sarion would brand it as the “Queen Pineapple of the Philippines”, is really sweet as a juice drink – the reason why i was able to down 2 tetra packs.LOL
More to come as I have been idle for a while…more of #dateindaet2014 escapades in the next entry!
