MANILA, Philippines - Filipinos love for beef tapa is undeniable. It is a favorite and signature dish that both locals and foreigners will find in almost all households and restaurants in the Philippines.

Tapa came from the Sanskrit word tapas, which means “heat.” It was an ancient, pre-Hispanic practice of drying boar or deer meat under the heat of the sun to preserve them. Over the years, Filipinos have learned to marinade the meat with soy sauce and other seasonings prior to drying to give more taste to it.

In a record-breaking event on January 19, different kinds of tapa dishes were served showcasing the endless possibilities of using the Knorr seasoning for marinating and seasoning dishes.

Unilever Food Solutions partnered with and challenged ten distinct chefs across the metro to create their ten signature and unique tapa dishes. The tapa dishes feature different tastes, texture, and even inspirations that went beyond imagination.

“This is a one of a kind event that has been made in the Philippines,” said Jacque Ruby of MakeHistory.ph, a community that celebrates everyone who would like to be part of history, also A&E Networks Asia Head in the Philippines. “This sets a new record that Filipinos should be proud of!”

In celebration of this record-breaking event, Knorr extends to Filipinos the celebration of their love for tapa through the Knorr National Tapa Day happening on Jan. 29, 2016.
