Just a quick post to announce that the 24th Negros Fair will open this Friday, September 11, 2009 at the Rockwell Tent in Makati. I have always loved this fair, not just for the food items on offer, but the arts and crafts as well. My recent trips to Bacolod have only increased my appreciation and fascination for all things Negrense. On my last trip to Bacolod, I met one of the organizers of this year’s trade fair and promised I would place an announcement on the blog… Among the mouthwatering delicacies on offer will be goodies from Casa Carmela, which was the manufacturer of the pitaw I wrote about here, and again here. They assure me that pitaw supplies this year are plentiful, so if you want some, you’ll have to go to the Negros Fair! They will also have these wonderfully thin piayas in the photo up top. Besides the classic muscovado filling, they offer espresso, rhum and dark chocolate fillings as well.
There will be dozens and dozens of stalls at the Negros Fair, so mark your calendars and set aside some shopping money! Thank you MK for the photos used in this post. :)
