Note: The last part of a meal is usually the dessert. This may come in the form of fresh fruit (in season), cooked, baked, frozen, or cooked in syrup. The dessert may be heavy or light depending upon the number of dishes served during a meal. During fiestas and special occasions, we are inclined to serve more than three dishes. A heavy dinner made up of several dishes calls for a light dessert. A dessert is served to give that feeling of fullness. Even if one has eaten a heavy dinner, the feeling of fullness is not there unless a dessert is eaten.Fresh fruits are the best kind of desserts because of their vitamins and mineral contents. There are also cooked desserts like leche flan, custard, Jams, marmalade, and jellies. Cakes, pies, and other pastries are examples of baked desserts.While gelatin is considered of little food value because it contains little complete protein yet it is popularly used and combined with other foods that make it an interesting dessert the number of We Filipinos are good in preparing desserts cooked in sugar or syrup like sweet macapuno, garbanzos, nata and others. We have several recipes for dessert that call for skill in preparation in order to bring out the best in the materials being used.In some cases, Filipino ingenuity have modified the preparation of some to suit one’s own taste. On the other hand, our experience in the cooking of some native desserts have also been tempered by foreigners who took a fancy on them. Some have high sounding names or given foreign titles or names but a closer scrutiny of the ingredients will how that they are very familiar with only a twist here or a turn there to make them somewhat different.
