  1. Anchor butter is my favorite so far. I enjoy having toast with Anchor butter and get a pat for each bite! It’s amazing the recipes created at this culinary challenge with Anchor as the main ingredient. I just learned that they also have cheeses and varieties of creams and milks.

  2. I love Anchor dairy products especially their butter. I can actually put large amount of them on a single bread haha.
    I never had a chance to attend a Pastry Culinary challenge like this but I would love to. I am a pastry lover and I love the craft itself. Pasty making unlike other cooking involves creativity and i think that is exactly what they showed here. Those are wonderfully decorated cakes and I would rather display them than eat them haha
