For Filipinos, Christmas and New Year’s handaan do not only mean celebrations but are symbolic offerings to attract good fortune. Round fruits are served to bring abundance, while rice cakes represent close relationships among the family and ensure that luck sticks to all members.
The real star of holiday banquets, however, is pancit. Merging Chinese traditional cooking with Filipino flavors, it is believed to attract wealth, health, and long life. Since it was introduced by Chinese traders during the Spanish colonial era, pancit has become a staple on every Filipino family’s dining table, especially for special occasions. Generations of Pinoys have truly made this dish their own and have cooked up as many variations as there are towns and provinces in the country.
This holiday season, good luck is on every food lover’s side as Unilever Food Solutions has cooked up something delicious—the Prosperity Pancit, boasting a variety of ingredients that attract fortune. This scrumptious Sooo Pinoy dish is loaded with egg noodles for a long and happy life, eggs for rebirth and fertility, and a medley of vegetables for close relationships.
