We continue our Filipino Food Series – due to the demand from our kababayans! – with the Ensaymada Project, an modern bakery proudly serving authentic Filipino desserts.
Chari Heredia-Reyes has a passion for baking! She decided to take on the challenge of adding ensaymadas to her repertoire of baked goods. The ensaymada was a special treat that Chari’s mom had made exclusively for family Christmas dinners. It involved a tedious ten-hour process, so the few dozen produced were savory treasures.
The current, commercially sold ensaymadas do not do justice to the true, centuries-old pastry. After years of work on recipe adjustments, Chari’s ensaymadas are now proudly perfected and available to all through the Ensaymada Project. In the words of a seasoned customer: “It is what a Filipino ensaymada truly should be.”
