RITA’S ITALIAN ICE: Smooth, Fluffy, Shard-free Ice Dessert! #UTT2015Winner

About UTT 2015: Most Remarkable Ultimate Taste Test Ever @AyalaMalls! (Photo Essay) 

Rita's Italian Ice is one of the largest Italian Ice concepts in the world with more than 600 stores in the US.

Rita's originally advertised their product as "water ice" which is also sometimes called "Italian Ice". Founded in 1984 by former Philadelphia firefighter Bob Tumolo. He bought the recipe from an elderly neighbor, did some enhances and made the recipe his own and the rest is history.

I personally like the Italian ice concept which is like creamy ice texture, very smooth and made fresh daily in the store.

MERCATO CENTRALE'S THE NEXT BIG FOOD ENTREPRENEUR!

Over the years, Mercato Centrale has evolved from being just a simple food market, to becoming a haven for budding food entrepreneurs. We’ve been lucky enough to give opportunities to home-based cooks with their own creations or heirloom recipes.

We’ve encountered so many great entrepreneurs with huge dreams and awesome stories!

For example, before Bakmi Nyonya, last year’s winner, became a Mercato fan-favorite, its owners were just serving to friends, family, and Bible study mates! Like many of the other contestants, they started with humble beginnings like this. It was only until the owner’s grandfather, whose dying wish was for her to finally start her food business, passed, that she sent in her application to NBFE without hesitation.

PORTOBELLO BAKERY’s Queso de Bola Ensaymada #UTT2015Winner

About UTT 2015: Most Remarkable Ultimate Taste Test Ever @AyalaMalls! (Photo Essay)

With the holidays fast approaching, there's this distinctive cheese found in supermarkets that signal that Christmas is indeed fast approaching. The cheese Queso de bola is characterized by it's salty after taste. As the cheese ages, it becomes more crumbly, sweeter and gives out a stronger flavor of the cheese.

Foodies enjoyed Portobello Bakery's soft and fluffy Ensaymada topped with grated queso de bola, sugar then brushed with mildly sweet butter.

It's quite cheesy, with a generous amount of tangy queso de bola sprinkled on top. It's very light treat with just the right amount of sweetness. The holiday-themed pastry would become a great substitute from the usual gifts.

Congratulations Portobello Bakery for winning the 2015 Ultimate Taste Test!
