Elevate your Christmas feast with these #TimplangAtin Pinoy hams

Mekeni offers #TimplangAtin Christmas hams in four varieties

The way Pinoys celebrate Christmas stands out from the rest of the world. Pre-pandemic, streets and homes are decked out with parols and twinkling lights and Christmas carols are blasting from every establishment’s speakers as early as September. 


We also make it a point to have something special on the table for the family to partake as one of the highlights of Paskong Pinoy is Noche Buena; and usually, the star of this annual feast is Christmas Ham.

Have a golden feast with Mekeni Gold Premium Ham 

Smoky and aromatic hams are such a holiday classic. But while almost all store-bought hams are already smoked, Mekeni takes their premium ham a notch higher. Every piece has been soaked in a rare blend of exotic herbs and spices. This variety carries Mekeni’s gold standard in food manufacturing as it is made from the choicest pork cuts, so you are sure that each bite is super moist and juicy!


Stick to the tradition with Mekeni Deli Ham

There is something special about Mekeni’s no-frills, ready-to-eat, traditional deli ham. It’s succulent and tender, and every slice has just the right amount of marbling.

This is the type of ham you will still want to eat with bread even after Christmas because of its bold flavor.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
