Hosted by Chynna Ortaleza, Kraft Eden cheese's latest project was unveiled: To put the Philippines in the Guiness Book of World Records by crafting 5,000 dishes out of cheese to best the previous world record of 4,668 set by India.
As if to demonstrate, a lovely sit-down lunch was served with cheese dishes for every single course. We started off with Roasted Vegetables-Cheese Terrine served with Tepenade and a simple salad on the side. It was delicious.
Next up was Eggplant Soup with Cheese Foam and Tomato Float (pictured above left) followed by Pineapple-Cheese Sorbet with Lemon Grass (pictured above right). The sorbet had a very strong flavor for a palate cleanser -- sweet, sour, and tart all at the same time.
For the main course we had US Beef Tenderloin Baked in Eden Cheese Garlic Infused Merlot Sauce with Grilled Risotto Cake and Cheddar Bouquet of Vegetables... whew! (pictured above left) Such a long name but it was actually just this really thick chunk of steak in brown sauce. I wasn't too happy with it since the cut I got was about two inches in diameter and it was rare. We were then treated to three different desserts -- Eden Cheese Cake with Chocolate Sauce (pictured above right), a warm cup of Chocolate Coffee Concoction (pictured below), and Pralines with Cheese Filling (pictured further below).
The Pralines with Cheese Filling (pictured above) was a pleasant surprise. I've used Kraft Eden cheese at home and well, it's on the savory (dare I say even salty) side and not really the type of cheese you have for dessert. The pralines were pretty good, I quite enjoyed them with Manila Hotel's hot brewed coffee.
