Malagos Farmhouse goes to Cebu!

Malagos Farmhouse CebuLast June 25, 2011. Malagos Farmhouse Cheeses were launched in Rustan’s Ayala, Cebu City. The launch was graced by the elite clientele of the Ayala branch. Olive P. Puentespina, the cheesemaker and Karin R. Carmona, the distributor were there to introduce the line to the loyal customers of Rustans. On the table was a selection of the cheeses, served with wines and freshly baked breads. Featured cheeses were Queso Rustico, the newest cheese made from cow’s milk, Fresh Chevre, Fresh Goat Cheese, Kesong Puti, Goat’s Milk Feta, Goat’s Milk Ricotta, Cow’s Milk Ricotta, Fromage Frais, Blue Goat Cheese, Blush and Blue Peppato.

Selina Romualdez, Rustan Cebu’s Marketing Manager was there to play host and receive inquiries from both restaurateurs and regular clients. The deli staff was also excited about the event since they have been receiving inquiries as to when Malagos Cheese will be available in the Ayala branch prior to the launch. Also present was Marcelo “Bon” Torres, Rustan’s AVP for VIS-MIN who particularly liked the Queso Rustico.

The cheeses were well received by the Cebuanos, the crowd lingered and enjoyed the wine and cheeses until there were but crumbs left. A very good sign of the Cebuano’s love of good food and good company. Needless to say, Karin and Olive left Cebu with a huge smile on their faces.
