You know the Christmas season has begun in the Philippines the moment you hear Jose Mari Chan’s “Christmas In Our Hearts” playing on the radio. There is simply no escaping the crooner’s iconic holiday song.

And while the holidays are still more than three months away, The Cravings Group has beaten the competition in launching what could very well be the earliest Christmas party of the year.

“This is very special for us because we are also marking our 30th anniversary,” said The Cravings Group operations head Bea Trinidad.

“At the center of our catering spread this year is ‘refresh.’ While we have perfected the taste of our food over the last 30 years, now we want to master the party experience with new themes that can’t be found anywhere else. We are pressing the refresh button to make it a merrier and brighter Christmas under the same Cravings family,” she added.

A FESTIVE TABLE. The Cravings Group serves Roast Turkey with Chestnut Raisin Stuffing, Chicken Cordon Bleu, Strawberry Shortcake, Choco Caramel Cake and a plate of Spicy Shrimp Gamberetti. 
For this year’s holiday season, Cravings rolled out two exciting additions: the modern and chic catering setups and the delicious tapas-style cocktail food.

“We not only deliver proven Christmas party recipes, but most importantly our team works closely with organizers and companies to create memorable events,” said Pia Trinidad, the group’s business development and strategy officer.

“We’re extremely happy that all three generations of our family are working the extra mile to provide exceptional Christmas experience to our customers this year. Bea and Pia are at the forefront of infusing new ideas into The Cravings Group and enabling our much-loved brands to remain the top choice of our customers in the next generations to come,” added The Cravings Group chief executive officer Badjie Guerrero-Trinidad.

Choose any of The Cravings Group’s premium and unique themes – Cider, Tangerine, Rust, and Ochre – to transform your party into an event worth remembering. Food and drinks will be concocted no less than by chefs from top culinary school CCA Manila to ensure the exceptional product quality for which The Cravings Group is known.

For smaller and more intimate events, The Cravings Group’s Christmas classics and latest spread are still available through take-home party trays, such as roast turkey with chestnut raisin stuffing, salt-crusted fresh salmon, crackling pork bagnet with Arroz Valenciana or truffle rice, four-cheese lasagna, and chicken cordon bleu.

And from cakes to gourmet boxes, a wide range of gift options are curated by The Cravings Group’s brands. On top of the list are its Christmas-only special edition cakes such as Strawberry Shortcake, Avocado Mousse Cake and Naked Devil’s Food Cake. Satisfy any sweet tooth with Cravings’ bakeshop items such as ensaymada and holiday bars or Wicked’s desserts such as cookie shards, S’mores, and chocolate barks.

For the discerning food lovers, Epicurious offers prime products of wine, truffles, cheese, artisanal chocolates, cold cuts, and salad dressings in beautiful and festive gift boxes.

For Badjie, it is a merry and bright holiday ahead, indeed. “Christmas is not just about great food, but it is a holistic experience that should be enjoyed by and shared with family, friends, and loved ones.”
