Have yourself a cheesy little Christmas

(The Philippine Star) - December 21, 2014 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Be the star of your Christmas parties by creating your own take on well-loved dishes or traditional pairings, all made even more special with California Cheese.   

“A wide variety of California Cheeses are now available to Filipinos locally. It’s a perfect time to experiment and give a new spin to traditional Christmas dishes.  Aside from giving a distinct flavor to main courses, California Cheeses serve as perfect appetizers. Enjoy a relaxing pre-Noche Buena get-together with friends munching on fresh fruits, California Cheeses, nuts, and a glass of wine,” said Reji Retugal-Onal, country representative, California Milk Advisory Board .

If you want to give simple dishes an extra kick, try adding California Pepper Jack to achieve a creamy, spicy flavor.  Savory dishes are perfected by topping them with some California Mozzarella to give them that hot and gooey flavor and texture. You can also have a taste of Mediterranean cuisine with California Grilled Cheeses. These unique cheeses can withstand extreme heat without melting.

California Cheeses pack a lot of nutrients. One ounce of natural cheese such as cheddar, Jack, or Mozzarella, contains approximately 20 percent of a person’s recommended daily calcium intake. Those who are lactose-sensitive or lactose-intolerant can still enjoy cheese as long as they eat natural hard (aged) or soft-ripened varieties, which contain little or no lactose. With Christmas parties and potlucks in full swing this time of season, it’s good to know that ingredients such as California Cheese can give you the right balance of flavor and nutrition to add to your dishes.

California Cheeses are available at S&R, Robinson’s Supermarkets and other leading supermarkets in Metro Manila.
