Holiday prep—and cleanup—made easy

The holiday parties are in full swing now with reunions and get-togethers scheduled one after the other. Food prep is on the mind of hosts, as well as where to keep the leftovers after the party ends. That’s where Glad comes in.

 

The United States brand of home and kitchen storage recently held two events to showcase the versatility of its product range. At the Pottery Barn branch in Central Square, restaurateur Happy Ongpauco-Tiu showed guests how she preps salmon fillets and chicken skewers for big parties.

 

After marinating the salmon, she wraps them in precut squares of Glad Cook ’n’ Bake paper, before popping them in the oven for 12 minutes. The paper has a specially designed non-stick coating that eliminates the need for additional fats and oils—perfect for those trying to watch what they eat during the holidays.

 

 Marinated

 

Tiu also prepared chicken skewers that she marinated in the refrigerator for five hours in resealable plastic bags.

 

“What I like about Glad’s freezer bags is that they prevent freezer burn, because they’re made of a thick durable plastic with a zipper lock that securely closes every time,” she said.

 

The marinated chicken can be grilled and served as skewers, or sautéed with tomatoes and onions, and topped on rice. “It’s like a Mediterranean dish,” she said.

 

For its second event at Mercato Centrale in BGC, Glad tapped actress Dimples Romana, who demonstrated how to make her flavorful shrimp and sausage broil using Glad aluminum foil, which is ideal for cooking, baking and barbecuing, thus ensuring minimal mess. Cleanup is a breeze and allows the party host to spend more time with his or her guests.

 

When it’s time to put away the leftovers, both raw and cooked, Glad has you covered with its range of cling wrap, storage bags, and GladWare reusable containers that are BPA-free, recyclable and safe to use in the microwave oven.

 

“We’ve also come out with our holiday cling wrap, 30 meters with an additional 10 meters. Our festive red-colored holiday collection ovenware can go from the oven straight to the table,” said Glad brand manager Daye delos Reyes. —Raoul J. Chee Kee
