#TinapayNatin: The Retelling of the Rich Bread Culture



I grew up with the well known Pinoy breads like Pan de Sal, Mamon, Ensaimada, Monay, and Kababayan. Tasting them once more reminds me of my different childhood stories. And just like me, each of those bread has its own story to tell.

Yes, here in the Philippines, aside from being the most reliable snack or the so-called pantawid-gutom, bread is also a reflection of each of our province's culture and history, which have been shaped by various influences throughout the ages. Therefore in celebration of the colorful tradition of Filipino bread-making and to honor of our food culture, Pilmico has partnered with Max's Corner to spearhead a nationwide bread competition, aptly called the Tinapay Natin Pinoy Bread Baking Competition.

Yes you heard it right - bread baking competition! You all know that in this blog I always feature different competitions like  race challenges, physical competitions, and other physical workout contest. But this time, let me share with you a different form of competition involving creativity, uniqueness, and cultural battle retelling the rich Philippine culture in the form of bread!

Tinapay Natin Pinoy Bread Baking Competition is part of Pilmico's Mahalin Pagkaing Atin Movement, an advocacy aimed at amplifying the role of every Filipino as a producer and guardian of our food heritage.




The contest invites young members of society to recreate a beloved traditional bread as well as a modern bread - in the hopes that by inviting the youth to add their own new twist to Philippine bread making, the art can be furthered. It is open to students aged 18 to 35-years old from anywhere in the Philippines. 

The competition legs will bw held in Manila, Bulacan, Batangas, and Iloilo respectively. The partner universities namely Treston International College, STI College-Bulacan, Lyceum of the Philippines-Batangas, and St. Therese College - Iloilo City will then act as venue sponsors while encouraging their own students to join the contest. The full mechanics of this competition are detailed in my lifesyle blog The Lifestyle Portal via the article post: #TinapayNatin. 

The team with a bread concept that clearly carries a unique story, innovation, creativity, and deliciousness will then be awarded as the makers of the country's first Tinapay Natin Pinoy Bread Baking Competition with either the regional tourism director or culinary heritage expert-or-both-providing the preamble as to how the bread perfectly summarizes the inspiring story of its place of origin.

Great that yours truly Runner Rocky is part of this cultural competition. And yes, we will ensure that we will serve the healthiest bread on your table! (Runner Rocky)
