A Christmas recipe from basketball mom Danica Sotto-Pingris

MANILA, Philippines - For basketball mom Danica Sotto-Pingris, wife of San Mig Coffee Mixers player Marc Pingris, planning meals for the Christmas season’s numerous family get-togethers and the much-awaited Noche Buena, starts early.

Wanting her Christmas feast to be special, the basketball mom is hands-on in preparing the menu. At the Pingris’ household, the Noche Buena spread typically includes lechon, rice cakes, lengua and kalderata. 

Though the family has signature dishes, Danica says that one staple on the table come Christmas is Purefoods Fiesta Ham.  Flavor-aged and slow-cooked to achieve the right flavor and tenderness, the number one Christmas ham brand in the country is very much a part of the Filipino Christmas tradition.
