Every 2nd week of February, Batanggenyo from Cuenca Batangas celebrate their Tinapay Festival. It was one of a kind celebration showcasing different breads they made. Cuenca is known for its bread, and most of the industry here are in bread making. They are doing this in honor of their patron saint, Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage for a beautiful life.

On this occassion, they recognize all the bakes in Cuenca for their outstanding skills in bread making. The biggest and longest bread of different shapes are paraded along the major streets of the town. After the parade, everyone are invited to eat the pastries and bread products that they have.

The Flour Division of San Miguel Mills, the town fiesta's major sponsor, provided most of the ingredients for the competition particularly its Emperor Hard Flour. The project was also held in cooperation with Pure Foods-Hormel, Magnolia, Inc., San Mig Coffee, Magnolia Nutri-Oil, Del Monte and the Cuenca Bakers' Cooperative.

Other San Miguel products provided for the Cuenca bakers include Purefoods Carne Norte, Magnolia Nutri-Oil, Magnolia Cheezee, San Mig Coffee and various Del Monte products.

Cuenca Batangas now earned their moniker as the Home of the Bakers.

    Proud to be from Cuenca Batangas!

    I practically grew up in our family bakery in Manila (where I was born) and then eventually lived in Cuenca (where my mom's side of the family is - the Comia clan). Our clan still proves that bakers from Cuenca Batangas are the best!

    Missing home soo much though :(
