"HAPAG-YAMAN" Brussels:  Filipino products on gourmet centerstage

The evening of the 22nd of October 2012 at Brussels' Tour and Taxis Royal Depot brimmed with the best of Filipino food exports that made their way into gourmet creations by eight Belgian chefs and one Filipino chef from Michelin-starred restaurants in the country.

Bangus (milkfish) and other seafood, fresh fruits such as the calamansi and the Philippine mango and other preserved tropical fruit products, specialty food sauces and mixes, coconut water, Philippine confections and snacks and even San Miguel beer took centerstage in epicurean dishes such as "Surf and Turf Cuttlefish and Lechon de Leche with Philippine Relish", "Philippine Octopus with Misua in Calamansi, Bagoong Chips and Okra" and "Ube Rice Pudding in Coco Mousse and Calamansi Coulis", to name  some of the crowd-pleasers.  The chefs, Kenny Bernaerts of Seagrill-Yves Mattagne, Maarten Bouckaert of Hof Van Cleve, Axel Colonna Cesari of Restaurant Centpourcent, Michiel de Bruyn of 't Zilte, Victor Magsaysay of Sakebar Restaurant, Ryan Stevenson of Le Saint Aulaye, Villem Vandeven of C-Jean and chef Michael Vrijmoed all took the challenge of incorporating Philippine products and ingredients into  masterfully prepared delights.

DA Undersecretary Antonio A. Fleta, together with the Philippine Ambassador to Belgium and Luxembourg, Victoria S. Bataclan, opened the doors to the event at a ribbon-cutting ceremony.   Fleta said "the event introduces, in a very gastronomic way, Philippine food products and flavors to the European market and to European consumers".

The event was attended by Belgian food importers, buyers from large Belgian supermarket and food retail establishments, representatives of chambers of commerce, representatives from the European Commission, small- and medium- foreign investors, food and culture enthusiasts, and members of the Filipino community.

Hapag-Yaman is a promotional food event that is part of the Department of Agriculture's Food Circuit Tour in Europe aimed at mainstreaming Philippine food export winners into the European market.
