One of the events in time for this year’s Kadayawan Festival was the Davao Gourmet Collective series called Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015.

Davao Gourmet Collective Kadayawan Food & Music Fair 1 - DavaoFoodTrips.comWe had a Preview of Davao Gourmet Collective Kadayawan Food and Music Fair on August 21-23 last August 1, 2015.

It opened officially in the afternoon of August 21 and ran until August 23, a Sunday and the last day of the Kadayawan Festival in Davao City.  It was a nice long Kadayawan weekend for foodies and foodtrippers in the city. Davao Gourmet Collective: Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015 in Photos - DavaoFoodTrips.comMr. Russel Alaba, Assistant Vice President for Marketing for SM Malls in Mindanao, welcomed the guests, purveyors, mall goers, shoppers, families and foodies who even came earlier before it officially opened to see what is truly in store for them in this DGC Kadayawan 2015.

Davao Gourmet Collective: Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015 in Photos - DavaoFoodTrips.comGlad to see the number and flow of people who came to this particular DGC event consistently for three days.

Davao Gourmet Collective: Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015 in Photos - DavaoFoodTrips.com Among all the DGC that we personally have been to since it started in 2013, this is probably the best in terms of crowd of foodies who came to enjoy and dine with their friends and family.

Davao Gourmet Collective: Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015 in Photos - DavaoFoodTrips.com   While we may have missed the Kadayawan events on the streets this year and in the recent years, we tried to enjoy it this year through food and music.

Davao Gourmet Collective: Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015 in Photos - DavaoFoodTrips.com Love how the DGC area in the fountain court were filled with people as early as in the afternoon when they open at 4PM, there were already people waiting as early as 3PM for the purveyors stalls to start serving their food and specialties.

Davao Gourmet Collective: Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015 in Photos - DavaoFoodTrips.com More people came in at dinner time and it is a long weekend so families and friends are out to enjoy and bond over fun, food, music after shopping.

My little guy ordered what they called Paradise crepe if I remember it right. This crepe was filled with chocolate and bits of fresh mangoes. Davao Gourmet Collective: Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015 in Photos - DavaoFoodTrips.com

My little guy finished this crepe in no time.

I just went around a little taking photos and by the time I came back shortly to our table, he left me just one cut square slice and said “Mama this is for you. I know you want to taste it.” Sweet! For moms like me, it is the thought that really counts.

Davao Gourmet Collective: Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015 in Photos - DavaoFoodTrips.com Ms. Carmina Mapa-Del Rosario known as The Crazy Cook and head of the DGC purveyors has her delicious and tasty sates that we tried. Davao Gourmet Collective: Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015 in Photos - DavaoFoodTrips.com Her staff allowed us to have a sampler of three sates chicken, pork and bacon. LOVE her peanut sauce that adds more flavor to the delicious sates.

The Don Durian Lechon Manok and Liempo is also part of this DGC.

Davao Gourmet Collective: Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015 in Photos - DavaoFoodTrips.com Don Durian is the better half of The Crazy Cook if I may put it that way… Mr. Raffy Del Rosario or Don Durian in his Instagram account is the husband of Ms. Carmina.  Davao Gourmet Collective: Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015 in Photos - DavaoFoodTrips.comTheir lechon liempo is one of the bestsellers during the night we went there and had our dinner with my boys. Their lechon liempo reminds me of our fave liempo from Cebu. Davao Gourmet Collective: Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015 in Photos - DavaoFoodTrips.comBut Don Durian’s version takes it to a step higher in terms of taste and the look of the liempo as it is served…

Then it can get hot during the Kadayawan weekend and these Stellina’s Lemonade drinks are perfect refreshers to quench our thirst for a healthy drink too.

Davao Gourmet Collective: Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015 in Photos - DavaoFoodTrips.com   They got sold out already before the second night with their all their stocks that came from Manila. Stellina’s is one of the two Manila based purveyors that joined this particular DGC. Davao Gourmet Collective: Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015 in Photos - DavaoFoodTrips.com I was able to buy the old fashioned lemonade drink which I prefer between the two flavors. Davao Gourmet Collective: Kadayawan Food and Music Fair 2015 in Photos - DavaoFoodTrips.com While our good friend who was also there with family, gave me her Pinko Lemonade with Cranberry. Thanks Nat! Nice seeing her family once again too.
