We first discovered Lavosh Chips when Dinah introduced them to the public when Midnight Mercato opened. Her products are presented well alongside her nicely designed booth. She would always be there, ready to serve with a smile and passionately educating customers on what lavosh chips are.

In Rockwell UTT, I personally loved her Creamy Walnut-Basil Pesto Brulee w/ Coco sugar spread and the Crunchy Sweet Tablea Lavosh Chips with rich Dark Chocolate Dip.

5Loaves & 2Fish deserves the No. 3 spot with a 3.99 rating in the recent Rockwell’s Ultimate Taste Test! Congratulations, Dinah! We are looking forward to your new creations. 🙂

The Story of 5Loaves & 2Fish
by Dinah Grace M. Miro

Rockwell's Ultimate Taste Test-50.jpg

I  came to engage myself in the food business after so many years of dreaming, praying and waiting!

Since childhood, food appealed to me (as) a very fascinating medium of art and science. As expected, this was all because of the great influence of my beloved mother, and I am truly blessed and thankful!  It’s always a happy and sweet  memory reminiscing my childhood years when  my mom would always see to it that every time she bakes a  cake or  prepares a special dish for the family, I have to be by her side — to assist her and observe what transpires in our small but decent kitchen.

Everytime we made our homemade ice cream, I would gladly volunteer to turn our ever-reliable hand-cranked ice cream maker. It amazes me how this ice cream would turn into a frozen delight. And as my mom would transfer it in tin cans, I would oblige myself to lick it ’til the churner got clean and shiny! Delicious! What  a childhood kitchen memory, indeed!

From then on, I started to find interest in collecting and cutting out recipes from magazines and newspapers that caught my attention. As the years went by, it has evolved to collecting cookbooks and kitchen gadgets…then, to my desire to study basic cooking and baking in a culinary school. This eventually led to my dream of finding the perfect venue where I can showcase my own creation.

To be competitive in starting  a food business, one of my  major considerations was  how this product would make a great impact (on) the consumers. Thus,  it’s a wise move to first establish my own niche. The key factor for me is to introduce a product that’s delicious, innovative and marketable… This in turn will serve as my trademark or my  own signature dish  — a marketing strategy for easy recall by consumers, and the rest will just follow.

As the old saying goes: “Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” I so agree with this saying 100%!

With all these considerations, the first thing that came into my mind was the Healthy, Crunchy Lavosh chips (it’s Baked, not Fried!) with the delectable dips and spreads that I never fail to serve as our staple appetizer (in) our countless parties and get-togethers at home.

For me, this is the healthier finger food alternative to the usual salty nachos/chips available in the market. (It) can be enjoyed both by young and old alike. To make it more nutritious,  I incorporated fresh vegetables to it like spinach, carrots, sugarbeets, and even developed  a sweet concoction using the organic cacao locally known as tablea. My children enjoy these veggie chips so much!!!

Personally, I trust the palate of children. If they say it’s yummy, it’s worth exploring! So, when the Lord opened  a wonderful opportunity for me  to market this product last Feb.11, 2011 at the BGC Midnight Mercato, plus the bonus of joining the Ultimate Taste Test 6 at Rockwell last Sept.3, 2011, I believed this was the Lord’s answer to my fervent prayer!!!

I love to entertain !
I love to feed people!
I dared to dream and labored to pray and wait!
By God’s grace, 5Loaves & 2Fish was finally born!!!
