If there are two things that are closely associated with mothers, it is good home-cooked food and much-deserved relaxation time. Combining these two, Mega Prime, in light of May being well-known as Mother’s Month, held a Potluck and Pamper Date last Saturday, May 6, to bring kindred mom souls together and enjoy great dishes, me-time, and a whole lot of fun.
Excited mommies arrived at The Felicidad Mansion in Quezon City with their very own concoctions made with Mega Prime products, highlighting their versatility and quality. They proudly showed off their dishes with fellow attendees, swapping stories and recipes. As this potluck activity was a contest, they made sure to give their best.
Judging the dishes was Mega Prime brand ambassador Marian Rivera-Dantes. From healthy nachos to coffee jelly to creamy carbonara, Marian enjoyed tasting all the home-cooked food. However, there was one that particularly stood out for her—a creamy chicken pot pie, which was the dish that won the grand prize.
“It’s our family comfort food. It’s made with diced chicken, onions, and of course Mega Prime products—corn, mushroom, and green peas,” said mom Ann Tandoc of her dish. “My son Troy, who loves to cook, suggested that instead of the usual pie crust, we use mashed potatoes and bake it for 5 minutes to make the dish more interesting. I think the resulting creaminess of the pie and the tastiness of the ingredients, especially the addition of Mega Prime vegetables, contributed to the win. I’m very happy.”
“One of the challenges moms face is to create delicious meals that the whole family will enjoy. Add to this the recipe variety that she needs to plan, the weekly budget that she has to work with, and the time constraints to cook—these are things that every mom has to consider. Mega Prime has a wide array of cooking ingredients and pantry essentials to create chef-level meals for the family,” said Raymund Alegre, Mega Prime Group Product Manager.
Winners of the potluck contest got kitchen essentials from cookware and kitchenware brand Masflex, which were highly appreciated by the guests.
After the potluck session, Marian and the mommies engaged in insightful, heart-to-heart conversations about the challenges and joys of motherhood. She reassured moms that their hard work is appreciated and reminded them to always find time for themselves.
With this, several moms made sure to retreat to the self-care area to enjoy some pampering time and relax with fellow guests. They were treated with foot and hand massage services to help them unwind and destress. All the guests were also given a self-care and beauty pamper kit provided by 90210 Beauty Lab.
A trusted ally of Filipino homemakers, Mega Prime is well-loved by moms who want to whip up delicious, nutritious, and affordable meals for their families. Its range of high-quality products reflects the company’s commitment to offering only the best to Filipino consumers.
“Mega Prime believes that moms deserve all the appreciation and recognition for all their hard work and sacrifices, and Mother’s Day is a perfect time to show them our appreciation for everything they do. This event is a testament to our commitment to our consumers and our brand promise of providing high-quality products and services to Filipino families,” concluded Marvin Tiu Lim, Chief Growth and Development Officer, Mega Prime Foods Inc.
