Delimondo, Taste Like Home
I was first introduced to Delimondo way back in 2011 at their Petra and Pillar Café along Chino Roces Ave in Makati. It was love at first bite, they serve dishes made from ingredients sold in the store. They have a wide array of products from corned beef, luncheon meats, pasta sauces, dips and oils. Some of my favorites are Chili Oil, Sausage and Garlic and Chili Corned Beef.
Delimondo brand is home grown and proudly local but with international flair. The name itself is made from two words “deli” and “mondo” or world. Known for producing curated products made from choice ingredients. It is often thought as an imported brand since prices are higher than the leading brands. Though we should be proud that we have products which is as good as the imported ones. Delimondo also has a great packaging design unlike competitors. It’s a contrast to flashy attention seekers in the grocery shelves. It has clean and crisp white background with plain black or red text.
The brand was founded by Katrina Ponce Enrile, President and CEO of JAKA Investment Corp. Their premium corned beef line started as unlabeled canned corned beef made with her own recipe as a special gift during Christmas Season. Then she introduce it to Salcedo weekend market in Makati in 2006 also the year Delimondo was born.
In 2011 they introduce Delimondo in supermarket shelves of S&R Membership Shopping. Then came Landmark and Rustan’s, followed by SM, Robinson’s and Puregold. Now they are available almost nationwide. I can briefly recall when I moved back from Makati to Batangas, I even bought 1 case of Delimondo corned beef. During that time it is only available in Metro Manila and I love it so much that I horded stocks for almost a half year supply.
Premium Quality Corned Beef
For us Filipinos, corned beef is one of our breakfast staples paired with rice and egg. What I love about this brand is that the beef is very softly long and shredded. It tastes perfect, not too salty and not too flavorful. It is juicy and delectable.
It’s the yummiest and the tastiest thing to have when you’re in a rush specially if you don’t have time to prepare baon or dinner. It’s a quick fix. The simplest way to prepare it is by sauteing it with onions and serving it with rice or bread.
There are a lot of brands battling to be the best corned beef in the market today. Since Delimondo emerged, for me, the battle was over. It is indeed the best corned beef.
Sharing with you another way to enjoy Delimondo, this time we will be using their Puttanesca Pasta Sauce. It’s different from the usual Filipino sweet style pasta, it’s bursting with flavors. My family is not a fan of Italian or the tomato based pasta but this one is our new crowd favorite.
What you’ll need:
- 500 grams Farfalle Pasta
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 310 grams Delimondo Puttanesca Pasta Sauce
- 140 grams Black Olives Pitted
- 1 Can Contadina Crushed Tomatoes
- 100 grams Capers
- 5 Cloves Garlic
- Big White Onion – 1
- A teaspoon of Mc Cormick Spanish Paprika
- 1 tablespoon Mc Cormick Italian Seasoning
- 4 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
- Chopped parsley (optional)
How to do it:
- Cook pasta for 6 to 7 minutes in boiling water until al dente. Time may differ depending on the brand of pasta so check the package to make sure.
- In a sauce pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Sautee garlic and caramelize onions. Add in the Spanish Paprika together with the Italian Seasoning.
- Next, pour in the Delimondo Puttanesca Pasta Sauce and Contadina Crushed Tomatoes. Stir until just combined.
- Add in the black olives followed by Capers, then toss in cooked pasta and Parmesan. Mix until well-combined and ingredients are well distributed. Serve immediately while warm, sprinkling a bit of parsley on top, if desired.
