Holiday parties are in full swing now with reunions and get-togethers scheduled one after the other. Food preparation is one of the minds of hosts, as well as where to keep the leftovers after the party ends.
This season, food storage brand Glad has teamed up with restaurateur and hands-on mom Happy Ongpauco-Tiu to feature her specialty dishes that make parties extra special.
Using Glad Cook ‘n Bake Paper, Happy cooked her savory salmon en Papillote dish. Glad Cook ‘n Bake Paper is made of a high-quality baking and cooking paper with a specially designed non-stick coating. It is heat resistant up to 230-degree celsius. It eliminates the need for fats and oils when cooking, allowing homemakers to create healthier meals with less mess.
Another sumptuous dish, Happy’s take on Filipino-style Paella was cooked in a rice cooker then transferred into a GLAD container after it has cooled down.
Following the cooking demo, the brand also announced its newest venture with Happy. Dubbed “Happy Platters,” customers can now avail of her sumptuous dishes served in holiday-themed Glad platters. “It is perfect for instant parties, potlucks, or even delicious gifts for your loved ones,” Happy said.
“We are happy to be teaming up with Happy Ongpauco-Tiu once again to make the holidays more festive for everyone. GLAD foils, cling wraps, zipper bags, and ovenware are the best complements to any gathering from storage, preparation, and our favorite ‘pabaon’ or take-home food, letting the love of any celebration live on,” said GLAD brand manager for Southeast Asia Daye Delos Reyes.
Use GLAD Limited Edition Christmas Roasters in the oven, as disposable trays for family meals, or to prepare and serve food for the parties. GLAD BBQ Trays are designed for use in kettle barbeques to catch those spills. On top of the saving clean up time, GLAD BBQ Trays also ensure than barbeque coals burn evenly.
Other GLAD products useful for holiday feasting include the cling wrap to ensure long-lasting freshness. And for leftovers, the brand has a wide selection of storage bags, freezer bags, and GladWare reusable containers which are recyclable, BPA-free, and microwavable.
“I used GLAD all year-round. I love all the products because they help save time when I’m cooking food for my family. This gives me more moments with my husbands and kids,” Happy added.
