Foodie drives all the way down south to experience the lethal combination of good food and nature tripping.
WE started clicking away with our cameras the moment we stepped down from the van.
Why, the place, Hacienda Macalauan in in Laguna, was every inch captivating and oozing with charm.
We were greeted by a refreshing breakfast of mozzarella sticks, a pitcher of chilled freshly-squeezed dalandan juice and their very own yogurt of different flavors, all locally grown.
Then we proceeded to check out the cow barn where fresh milk is sourced from.
We walked over to the main plant where they make all the cheeses that go to the market. Definitely some milk and cheese 101 for the FOODIE team.
Witnessing first hand how commercial milk and cheeses are processed, a dairy 101 of sorts for the FOODIE team, was one of the major highlights of the tour–and that alone, made the three-hour trip well worth it.
We scoured the Hacienda some more and caught a majestic view of the place. The luscious landscape with the steady gurgling of the water stream nearby just blew us away.
Milk and cheese plus a nice nature tripping experience equaled some good memories of the hacienda. Moo!
