The Big Banquet 2: Get Ready for More!
One of the ingredients of a successful celebration is the abundance of a variety of delicious food. Whether you’ve just walked down the aisle with the love of your life, blew 18 candles off your three-layer cake, or put together a great party for your seven-year-old, you’d want to share a wonderful meal with your nearest and dearest.
The Blue Leaf Filipinas, one of the country’s premier venues for weddings, debuts, and other milestone events, presents The Big Banquet 2 in cooperation with Our Awesome Planet, the number one food and travel blog in the Philippines. Set amidst a garden landscape with a five-meter waterwall, The Blue Leaf Filipinas takes pride in its world-class architectural design featuring capiz doors, abaca chandeliers, and a barandilla balcony. It offers three festival-inspired halls alongside three music-themed function rooms.
Following the success of The Big Banquet last May 2014, The Blue Leaf brings back this one-of-a-kind food tasting event on October 12, 2014, Sunday, at The Blue Leaf Filipinas in ASEANA City.
Eugene Sandejas, Managing Director of The Blue Leaf, says, “The Big Banquet was a landmark event as it gathered the country’s best caterers under one roof. Not only did these caterers prepare their best menus, they also paid special attention to the presentation, from the plates to the centerpieces. Consumer response was overwhelmingly positive.”
Anton Diaz, founder of Our Awesome Planet, says, “People hadn’t seen anything like The Big Banquet before. When they walked in, they were surprised to find all these beautiful table settings. And, of course, the food was great. It was awesome!”
Set in a world-class venue that is The Blue Leaf Filipinas, The Big Banquet 2 promises to be a memorable culinary event as nine caterers serve a curated spread of thoughtfully prepared dishes. Albergus, Bizu, Hizon’s, Josiah’s Catering, Juan Carlo, K by Cunanan, Mesclun, The Red Chef, and TJIOE will each be serving four-course meals highlighting their best appetizers, main courses, desserts, and signature drinks.
As a special treat, each caterer will also present one surprise dish. Whether it’s an appetizer or a main entree, one thing is certain: it will be a delightful culinary treat for every guest. The caterers have taken great care in making sure that this surprise dish is tastefully unique in every way. Apart from being able to taste all these wonderful dishes, guests will be able to make like food critics too. Just like in the first event, each guest will be given a rating card where he can write down his thoughts on each dish according to taste and presentation. Our Awesome Planet will gather these rating cards, and reveal the crowd pleasing dishes soon after!
The Big Banquet 2 will be open to two batches of diners, the first from 11 AM to 2 PM and the second from 4 PM to 7 PM. Its sponsors include San Miguel Beer, When in Manila, Breakfast Magazine, W@W (weddings at Work).
