Joined Best Food Forward – Rockwell Weekend


Nuffnangers spent a leisurely afternoon over food, food and food. Not new to the food fair scene but this one is quite different. Best Food Forward 2015 is bigger and better than previous years. It ran for two days (Saturday and Sunday) at the Rockwell Tent and my friends and I trooped to Rockwell Tent to sample and have our fill. Browse through this blog post in pictures.

If you are big on dips and salad dressings, Whisk is for you. Personally tried their strawberry flavored dip with their cracker bits and I actually liked it. Best Food Forward, i think, offered more than 5 dip and salad dressing options.
Whisk bestseller is their spinach and artichoke dips. Best kept cold and refrigerated before you used it as dip or before using it as salad dressing.
Chizu is not your usual cheese cupcakes around, these have been baked in brick fire charcoal oven. Just from sampling it, you taste the fresh bread and you know that it is free from your usual cheesecake preservatives.
If you have always liked your Mediterranean dose of food delight, this hummus is for you. Sample it all you like. Despite so many people milling around their booth, didn’t get disappointed when I sampled it.
Tried their small serving of Crunchy Belly the moment we stepped in. However, we were wise enough not to stay too long. May be too delicious you can lose track of how much pork you have already eaten.
So after doing all the walking and completing the rounds in Rockwell Tent, stepped out of the tent and found the perfect meal for lunch. TT served us fresh from the grill pork served with tomatoes, salted egg, atchara. One may also opt to spray vinegar to your food before you have your fill.
Making your sausage picks? Sevilla and Sons takes care of small batch sausages made from the finest pork. It was quite dizzying to sample too many pork options around the tent. It didn’t help that it sat right next to Seacharon and just a stone’s throw away from crispy pata kiosk.
world class crack pie The Red Hot Oven was also at the food fair. Theirs will definitely give the other Metro bakers a run for their money.

How We “QikIt” with Perfect Pitch 2                                          

shangstairsThe night started ACA-okay as we all lined up for Perfect Pitch 2 at Shangrila Cineplex for an exclusive first-day screening. Did not realize how we all missed the Bellas of Barden University until the girls started singing and Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) herself started her trademark comedy stunts. Movie experience was made even better watching it at Shangrila Cineplex. More legroom and not so crowded seats are perfect enjoying the tunes and the laughs I had all throughout the movie.


With Nuffnang (biggest blogger community) hosting the movie event, and with free foodie to match, I just had to QikIt right away.


Although Perfect Pitch 2 has the similar underdog-becomes- winner plot, unlike other movie college characters who graduate, the Bellas are up for their final year. With Beca (Anna Kendrick) leading the pack to beat the singing Germans in the world championships, sing-along and ear-pleasant medleys make Pitch Perfect 2 a type of movie you can catch at any point and still capture you to sit through to the end.


Definitely voting to rename Fat Amy to Funny Amy. Laughter is the topmost thing on my mind when I get reminded of Fat Amy. Among my take aways? Not agreeing with John Michael Higgins playing the broadcaster on the film when he said that the Bellas are inspirations to girls all over the country who are too ugly to be cheerleaders. More than anything, the movie reminds us that if you work hard at anything, work as a team, have the courage to show up, then you will inevitably deliver.
