TastEX 2012: Discovering the Taste of Success
What is the real taste of success? Is it embodied in the luminous flavor of a citrus-glazed Hawaiian dish, or the strong kick of a spice-infused broth?
Indulge your senses and discover the true taste of triumph as the country’s leading corporate caterer flexes their culinary muscles to demonstrate their intimate understanding of the most successful brands in the Philippines.
Launched for the second time, and with a twist, is TastePRO’s Brand Degustation, an exciting showcase of savory delights, in this year’s TastEX. This year, TastEX features three different themes aimed to present their wide array of offerings for business events, meetings and activities.
Of Glamour, Great Ideas and Glorious Ingenuity
The Oscar-themed selection, designed to celebrate the various companies’ glittering success, channels the glitz and glamour of Hollywood by featuring scrumptious dishes and delectable delights worthy of the grandest company anniversaries, Christmas parties and other corporate celebrations.
Meanwhile, Architects of Greatness celebrates the occasions where the building blocks of successful businesses—great ideas—are generated, shared and exhibited: seminars, conventions, company meetings and sales rallies. This theme features a full variety of savory dishes perfected to appeal to the discriminating tastes of business professionals.
Lastly, the Poker¬-themed selection glorifies the ingenuity, tenacity and competence of the individuals responsible for the success of these companies. To honor these characteristics, TastePRO features a delightful assortment of lip-smacking hors d’oeuvres concocted for product launches and business cocktail parties.
The delicious selection of dishes featured in the different themed areas enables guests to develop and treasure a deeper understanding of the companies through a delightful gustatory experience.
