Doña Elena Al Dente initiates the observance of World Pasta Month this October. Filipinos have an undeniable love pasta, and Doña Elena tributes our Italian food heritage with #LovePasta event today, October 4, 2017 at the newly opened Sip & Gogh in Century Mall Makati City.
While providing many pasta options as a way of evaluating the Filipino palate is a prime motivation. Fly Ace Corporation AVP for Marketing, Abigail Ng-Reyes, says says that the brand aims to achieve more by fostering better appreciation of Italian culture via the annual Pasta Month celebration. “Doña Elena Al Dente is about celebrating culture and enlivening a food legacy through best-tasting pasta dishes that you can share with loved ones and friends.”
Reyes also shared that “Just like how most, if not all, Filipino celebrations are centered on family, great food, and sharing wonderful memories while gathered around the dinner table, Italians also hold food at a higher regard. For them, food isn’t just nourishment, it is life, and each tells a beautiful story.”
For four years now, Doña Elena has been pioneering this celebration of Italy’s acclaimed contribution to the Visual and Culinary Arts, which also manifests in Al Dente – an artisanal quality pasta brand in the Philippines with premium quality and genuine Italian origins.
Chef Chris Locher of Amare sampled some scrumptious and easy recipes which used mostly local ingredients with the Italian quality of Al Dente Pasta to fuse Italian and Filipino tastes. And this is just the beginning of what’s to come in this year’s World Pasta Month, as Doña Elena will also have nationwide promos and share more free recipes to everyone.
Al Dente Pasta is imported from Italy and is made with 100% Durum Wheat Semolina, the only kind of flour that Italians make the best kind of pasta with. Doña Elena crafts its pasta using the long-established Italian method of using bronze dies to make pasta. This style of making pasta helps sauces cling better, making it more savory. What’s more is that Doña Elena Al Dente pasta is recommended to vegetarians!
Doña Elena Al Dente Pasta also uses all-natural, GMO-free ingredients, making it the best choice for home cooks, culinary professionals, and restaurateurs who want to create unforgettable dining experiences by cooking varieties of satisfying pasta dishes for every occasion.
