Creative Sandwiches with Gardenia’s The Next Big Sandwich Hit 2014

Gardenia’s The Next Big Sandwich Hit 2014 elimination round happened last September 25 at White Space in Makati. It is an inter-university sandwich-making competition encouraging students to exhibit their creativity and talent in the craft of sandwich-making.

This year’s competing schools included Adamson University, Far Eastern University, La Consolacion College, National University, Philippine Women’s University, St. Paul Quezon City, St. Scholastica Manila, University of the East, University of the Philippines, and University of Santo Tomas.

Original sandwich recipes from the contestants

A total of 5 student teams from each university presented two original sandwich recipes based on two themes:  the Power Sandwich (a full meal sandwich) and the Wild Card Sandwich (a combination of Gardenia breads that will best define a Happy Bread Day sandwich). After the sandwich making comes a business phase wherein students will be asked to sell their original-recipe sandwich through any platform – online, exhibits or direct marketing among friends.

What makes this competition different from other culinary competitions is that we help students hone their entrepreneurial skills ”, explained Stephanie Suarez, Assistant Product Manager of Gardenia.

Students will be judged by celebrities and personalities from the food industry such as Chef Tristan Encarnacion, Chef Jeremy Favia, Chef Jojo Javier, Chef Nino Logarta and Gardenia’s very own Lovely Cervas (in-house nutritionist) and Stephanie Suarez (Assistant Product Manager).

The stars of the Next Big Sandwich Hit, aside from the students and judges, were the delicious breads of course!  I have always thought that Gardenia breads by itself is already tasteful and true to its slogan “Masarap kahit walang palaman”. But after attending The Next Big Sandwich Hit I discovered that there’s so much more we can do with it.
