Filipinos love to eat, and love their gata dishes even more. And we know that the key to a delicious gata is coconut milk that has the “unang piga” quality. But, isn’t it troublesome to always have to go to the market when you need gata? While you can sometimes buy them already grated, you’ll still need to press them yourself. And once all those steps are done, you have to find the energy to cook your dish right away since, let’s face it, gata spoils so easily. Whatever happened to satisfying your craving right away? Well, here’s the good news, mamas! The days of going through the hassle of “pagkayod” and “pagpiga” are now over. Coco Mama proudly introduces the new Coco Mama Fresh Gata, the solution to all your gata needs!
Proudly made in the Philippines using the country’s finest coconuts, every pack of Coco Mama Fresh Gata contains coconut cream made from freshly pressed coconuts. These coconuts are grated, pressed, and packed on the same day, ensuring you only get that “sarap ng unang piga” in every pack! It is deliciously creamy, appetizing “puting-puti” and “nagmamantika” when cooked, telling of how truly fresh it is. It’s conveniently packed in a pouch which you simply need to shake, tear and pour onto your dishes. No more “kayod,” no more “piga-piga,” only fresh gata!
Use it for ginataang sitaw at kalabasa, chicken curry, gising-gising, adobo sa gata, and your other favorite gata dishes. You can also use it to make your beloved desserts and kakanin like ginataang bilo-bilo, biko, maja blanca and ginataang mais. The possibilities are endless with Coco Mama Fresh Gata, you just gata try it now. In fact,t storing is now a problem of the past, as every Coco Mama Fresh Gata lasts longer than your usual “kinayod na gata”. Just store it in your pantry and enjoy gata anytime!
Coco Mama Fresh Gata comes in two sizes – 200ml (Php29), which is equivalent to one coconut, and 400ml (Php60), which is equivalent to two coconuts. It is now available in supermarkets nationwide. With the new Coco Mama Fresh Gata, there’s no more need for “kayod” and “piga”! You get that “sarap ng unang piga” without the hassle. Who knew cooking gata dishes can be done this easily? Well, you just #GataBilib!
During the launch, Coco Mama team invited the guests to join the Piga challenge where in they would press the coconut and the most number of ml will win, hopefully targeting 200ML as it is one coconut as what one small pouch of Coco Mama contains.
The Coco Mama herself, Ms. Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo, brand ambassador, shared why she loves cooking, what her and her family’s favorite dishes are and how she is really a user of Coco Mama.
There was also a cook off, one mama cooks with gata that she still needs to “kayod” and “piga” and one mama, Tart Carlos, will cook using Coco Mama Fresh Gata. They both have the same ingredients and recipe, the only difference is the gata they will use. Tart, of course, finished cooking her ginataang gulay first and as Juday and Chef Rosebud tasted it, it is definitely a win!
After which, Chef Donna and Juday cooked adobo sa gata and bilo-bilo together. Of course, we were able to taste it after. I still can’t get over how delicious it is. Me want more.
Of course, this event wouldn’t be much as fun if I wasn’t with my lovely mommas, whom I spend most of my time with nowadays.
Here’s some snippets for you to watch.. enjoy!
