Filipino households will not be complete without the signature touch of Filipino cuisine made famous by the Popular Food Icon Teresita "Mama Sita" Reyes. For over 100 years, Mama Sita has touched more than millions of Filipinos through her products, and now, she continues to widen her reach through her well-loved recipes.
Last July 4, 2016, The Mama Sita Foundation, led by Mrs. Clara R. Lapus, President, donated sets of cookbooks and commemorative stamps to the National Library of the Philippines. These cookbooks, will be made accessible to the public in order for them to know more about Filipino recipes and produce more delicious dishes right from their home.
Other attendees include notable chefs, Chef Rosauro "Sau" del Rosario, Chefs Jester Arellano and Josen Villongco from the College of St. Benilde, and Chef Raymond Mendoza and Mr. Leroy Borrega from Lyceum of the Philippine University as well as other important stakeholders of the foundation: Ms. Phye Yabut, Ms. Chuchay V. Andrada.
Aside from donations to the NLP, the Mama Sita Foundation will also be visiting libraries across the country. Be sure to watch out for their cookbooks available nationwide!
