Lotus Biscoff, Europe’s Favorite Biscuit with Coffee, has finally arrived in the country, and it is going to elevate your coffee experience to a whole new delicious level.
Hosted by Daphne-Osena Paez, the launch was held at Makati City’s posh Society Lounge, transformed into a luxurious red airport lounge. Guests with their boarding passes cued in airport terminals for check-in. Attendants, clad in designer Pia Gladys Perey, greeted them upon arrival.
A truly first class experience, overflowing coffee was served by Allegro Beverage Corp. upon seating and dishes were carefully prepared by Chef Patrice Freuslon.
Fly Ace Corp. president Jun Cochanco and Lotus Bakeries International Distributors General Manager Bart Bauwens welcomed guests and shared how the partnership started and their plans for Lotus Biscoff in the country.
A highlight of the event is the Biscoff Creations of Tiny Kitchen’s Vicky Veloso-Barrera.
Her interpretation of the Lotus Biscoff biscuits and spreads include Mini Biscoff Cinnamon Rolls, soft bread glazed with Lotus Biscoff spread and topped with toasted almonds. Mini Biscoff Cupcakes is a perfect recipe for first-time cupcake bakers as its main ingredient is a simple dollop of Lotus Biscoff Spread Crunchy and Biscoff crumbs. Another creation is the Crazy Biscoff Parfait, a lavish dessert of sponge cake, mascarpone, and Lotus Biscoff Spread Smooth.
Since 1932, the Lotus Biscoff, a Belgian specialty, has been Europe’s coffee break favorite. From its humble beginnings as a small bakery in the Belgium town of Lembeke, the Boone brothers packed their biscuits and delivered around the neighborhood.
Eight decades later and the recipe still remain. It was in the 1950s when Lotus introduced pairing these biscuits with coffee, which then became a routine in Belgian hotels, restaurants, and coffee shops. And then, in 1985, Europe’s favorite biscuit with coffee became America’s favorite biscuit with air travel. Lotus introduced Biscoff as an in-flight treat through the exhausting long flights.
