Yesterday, I was one of the lucky Kagay-anons to catch the exciting session of Celebrity Chef Donita Rose in Centrio Mall. I really looked forward to see her that day because I was, and still is (!), a big fan of Donita since her VJ days.
Anyways, with Regional Festivals rounding up in the country this coming months, Chef Donita Rose, along with Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil, started touring Cagayan de Oro to celebrate the Higalaay Festival this August.
Chef Donita shared her own twist on the famous Higalaay dish of Sinuglaw, composed of sinugba (grilled pork) and kinilaw. The dish was made more flavorful and healthier with the use of Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil, which is Chef Donita's most recommended kitchen staple as it's packed with good fats such as Omega 3 and 6 that are great for the heart. It also has Vitamin A that helps improve eyesight and has the lowest saturated or bad fats among all kinds of cooking oil which makes it a healthier option. Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil also has a high smoking point making it the most ideal cooking oil for frying and deep frying.

Additionally, it was a fun-filled treat to Cagayan de Oro's local moms and foodies who also got a chance to sample Chef Donita's own rendition of Sinuglaw during her live cooking demo at Centrio Mall last August 30, 2018. Local Supermarket samplings were also done in Robinson's and Shopwise Supermarkets in Cagayan de Oro.
"We are thrilled to bring Chef Donita and Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil to our local festival activation," said Fly Ace Corporate Group Product Manager for Edible Oils, Zen Prudentino. "We want to continue educating Filipinos nationwide about the importance of using heart-healthy cooking oil in everyday cooking. We don't need to sacrifice the taste and flavor of our meals; it's definitely possible to always prepare healthy and delicious meals with Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil," she added.
Festival menus are usually oily but with Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil, we can now eat guilt-free knowing that our food choices promote heart-healthy and may help with disease prevention. With the country's consistent No. 1 and most trusted cooking canola oil brand, Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil provides a healthy and affordable option in cooking our favorite festival dishes.
Che Donita, together with GMA and Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil, is excited to prepare healthy dishes during her next Festival Tour in Vigan City's Raniag Festival in Octobber and for the Aklanons during the highly anticipated At-Atihan Festival in January.
