Dona Elena Al Dente Pasta Celebrates World Pasta Month

The month of October is special especially to pasta-lovers like me because it is the month when pasta-enthusiasts around the globe celebrate it by preparing new and traditional pasta dishes. And in line with this, Dona Elena Al Dente Pasta joined in on the celebration by hosting an afternoon of fun for print and online media guests.


There are two theories that I found on the internet about the origin of pasta that makes sense. The first one was the belief that pasta originated from "noodles" which was created in China. Marco Polo introduced it to Italy after his trip to Asia in 1271. Another theory is that there's evidence of Etrusco-Roman pasta made from wheat. However, this was not boiled but rather, oven-baked. source: http://www.lifeinitaly.com/food/pasta-history.asp 


Aside from pasta, Dona Elena has other delicious products that goes well with Dona Elena Al Dente Pasta. There are olives, olive oil, sardines and juicy tomatoes.




The event was hosted by the jolly RJ Ledesma and Chef Michel of The Blackboard in Podium demonstrated his love for pasta by creating mouthwatering pasta creations.

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma. Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west. For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.
