FOOD Magazine's Presents Perfect Bazaar at Rockwell

There’s barely a month left before Christmas Day so have you started crossing off items from your Christmas list?

If not, here’s some good news for you. Manila’s most sought-after home bakers are cooking up a huge surprise for you this Christmas as ABS-CBN’s Food Magazine—the Philippines’ largest selling culinary magazine—stages a two-day, all-food Christmas gift fair at the Rockwell Tent last November 26 and 27 dubbed as Rockwell’s Presents Perfect Bazaar.

“The Presents Perfect Bazaar is inspired by the delectable offerings from Food Magazine’s annual gift guide,” says Nana Ozaeta, FOOD’s Editor-in-Chief, “Here, people can experience the exquisite goodness of delectable treats—from cakes and pastries to recipe books and savory dishes—from merchants in Rockwell’s famous Baker’s Dozen as they shop in a treasure trove of holiday gifts for their friends and families.”

Fruitcakes and hams may be overused during festive holidays, but in reality food is one of the best and sure-win options to give as a Yuletide present. From specialty cakes and Filipino pastries to gourmet breads and chocolates, merchants at this year’s Presents Perfect Bazaar have every gift ideas you need to make your Christmas celebrations sparkle with a unique gastronomic delight.

“We try to make this event as diverse and colorful as possible to cater to more people with different preferences. Right now, we have a mix classic favorites to new discoveries—from known caterers, stores, specialty shops to home-based bakers—showcasing their goods at the venue and offering a perfect mix of the most scrumptious, exquisite, delightful gifts for the holidays”, says Ozaeta.

This year's Presents Perfect Christmas-catalogue turned bazaar features classic favorites and new discoveries from known caterers, stores, and specialty shops, as well as home-based bakers and cooks like Mariles Ibarra (Christina's Kitchen), Lisa Salgado (Cake Avenue), Karen Young (Karen's Kitchen) and Judia Lu (Costa Brava).

The bazaar will also feature Manila’s most sought-after home bakers from Rockwell’s famous Baker's Dozen. Merchants will include Baked by Anita, The Sweet Life by Ange, Crukitchen, Casa Carmela, Baked by Carmen, and Joyce Aragon, who also happens to be a part of this year's FOOD Presents Perfect Gift Guide.

FOOD magazine has revolutionized the local culinary magazine landscape through its trailblazing and critically-acclaimed editorial content. For years now, FOOD Magazine featured countless recipes, food and beverage, pros and amateurs who have made the grade. To know more about FOOD Magazine, visit
