Just a day before my birthday is Yummy magazine‘s 10th birthday. Wow! How time flies fast especially for those who labor with love.
For those who still haven’t heard the magazine yet and/or for the sake of our foreign readers, I’ll just fill you in about it.
The Yummy magazine is currently Philippine’s best-selling and number one food magazine. They have over 4 million fans on Facebook, 130, 000 followers on Instagram, and 3.8 million page views on their website.
From being launched as a supplement in 2007, Yummy has done the following in the course of ten years:
- Produced ten (10) cookbooks;
- Launched two of the biggest cooking and eating fairs in the country – Yummy Eats and Yummy Big Baon Blowout; and
- Published 112 issues.
Yummy‘s 10th Anniversary Party
As Yummy celebrated their 10th anniversary, they hosted a socials event with movers of the food industry. It was held on a weekday morning so I, as usual, represented our blog alone.
I celebrated with their milestone of ten years and also witnessed the unveiling of their first-ever Yummy food studio.
Indeed, this means more breathtaking food photos and awe-inspiring cooking videos.
Apart from that, they offered to us the opportunity to try the food products or dishes in their collaboration with Potato Corner, Chef Tony’s Popcorn, Manam, Bono Gelato, and Goldilocks.
I personally tried Potato Corner’s garlic parmesan fries. It’s crisp fries tossed in creamy roasted garlic and parmesan cheese. This new garlicky and salty flavor is available at Potato Corner carts nationwide from March to May.
In addition, I got my hands on the sinfully good treat, Crunchybelly by Carlo’s Kitchen.
Finally, I had two servings of Bono Gelato. One is their best-selling classic Taho flavor. It’s soy-based gelato with mini sago and sweet sugar syrup.
Their other flavors in which they collaborated with Yummy are mango and strawberry. Too bad I didn’t get to try the strawberry anymore since they ran out of it. Know you now what to try first when you head to any Bono Gelato branch.
By the way, if you’re wondering as to why I ended up only trying only a few, Bizu catering satisfied my tummy. I also couldn’t make myself super full since I still have to eat more food later in the afternoon.
A Yummy Treat
With Yummy magazine’s 10th birthday, they’re treating their loyal readers to a special collector’s edition. It’s filled with the best party recipes (from international dishes to the editors’ heirloom recipes). What I particularly would love to try cooking is the chili con carne as Lloyd loves eating it.
One will also find the nifty kitchen tips and tools extremely helpful. They also enlisted the essential books that every novice or expert should have in a personal library. Finally, other contents it has are restaurant recommendations from the Yummy staff and a special feature on the pillars of the Philippine culinary scene.
Truly, Yummy magazine will continue to inspire readers to become better cooks for years to come. That definitely includes me. After all, I wouldn’t want Lloyd to go hungry when we possibly get married in the future.
Yummy magazine is available in supermarkets, bookstores, convenience stores, and on newsstands nationwide.ITs digital edition is also available for download through Apple Newsstand, Buqo, and Zinio.
