Every food lovers’ favoured marketplace, The Gourmand Market, is back to take everyone on a delightful summer stroll. From May 20 to May 22, 2016, guests can discover the latest selection of appetizing dishes and shopping finds. Together with Globe Platinum, the 3-day event will feature carefully curated culinary choices that resemble the quaint streets of old Italy.
This time around, Globe Platinum customers are in for a special treat as select Gourmand merchants offer their very own Globe Platinum dishes. Ranging from the sweet to the savoury, these dishes are definitely something new to try.
Participating merchants include Art of Pie with their Smoked Salmon Caviar Pie; Wrapped Up’s Bellychon; Jam Foods’ Premium Lean Angus Tapa; STWO’s Pork Bun; NawwTy’s Kitchen’s Crab Fat Paella; Xancho and their Brown Butter Pasta with Sage and Pancetta; Global Grub’s Bahn Mi; all the creamy sundaes of Manila Creamery; Liquido Maestro’s refreshing Lychee Rose Kmbucha and Summer Platinum nights; and Manila Belly’s Pinoy Porchetta tacos.
Guests dropping by this weekend will receive a Loyalty Card upon purchase of any Globe Platinum dish. Each Globe Platinum dish purchase merits a stamp from the merchant on the card. Customers who can complete all 5 stamps over the 3-day event can claim a special prize at The Gourmand Market booth.
Globe Platinum customers purchasing the special dishes will receive a discount coupon from participating merchants which they can use for succeeding purchases and special orders. Special discounts start at 15% and up. They just have to show their Globe Platinum card or Globe SMS as proof.
“The Gourmand Market continues to gain a strong following among those who always look forward to new ways to enjoy food in a charming and enjoyable setting. This is why we partnered with The Gourmand Market so that we can give our Globe Platinum customers a wonderful experience and the same time give them access to events that inspire them even more,” says Kaisie del Carmen, Globe Platinum Brand Head.
Taking off from the philosophy “Eat Well, Live Well”, The Gourmand Market gathers inspiration from travels and a shared passion for the love of food. It is a platform for vendors to connect with chefs and foodies so they can discover prime, unique and delectable food products and ingredients in a tasteful environment conducive to shopping and dining. It is also a local interpretation of popular markets in locations such as London, Paris, Italy, and Spain for both Filipinos and non-locals to experience and enjoy.
During the Gourmand Market weekend, Globe Platinum customers will have a comfortable place to dine at the Globe Platinum lounge with complimentary refreshments to enjoy with family and friends. At the lounge, customers may also try the latest Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 edge as well as the Gear VR that is available with the Platinum Lifestyle Plans. Platinum Relationship Managers are present to expertly guide guests for any inquiry.
Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 edge is available on any of the Platinum Lifestyle Plans starting at Plan 3799 that already comes with the free Samsung Gear VR. Platinum Lifestyle Plans are especially crafted to fit today’s digital, dynamic and always-connected lifestyles.
