Why a catsup museum?
I was fortunate to be invited to experience this quirky and educational Catsup Museum during it’s opening at the NutriAsia grounds in Cabuyao, Laguna. The Catsup Museum was curated by Mind Museum so expect interactive, fun and educational installations to tickle your mind.
Being one of the first to be there let me enumerate the things to expect at the first Catsup museum not just in the Philippines but the world.
The museum is divided into four halls:
- History of Banana Hall where you will be taken back in time to learn where Banana comes from and hey it is not a tree! What is it? Visit the catsup museum to know more! How? Will tell you at the end of this posts.
- Maria Orosa Hall to honor Maria Orosa, he food technologist who invented Banana Ketchup!
- Manufacturing Hall where you get to see in a very interactive and educational manner the step-by-step production of the commercial banana ketsup brands we love. Tasha love this part of the museum!
- Then finally, the Banaquet Hall where you can find buffet tables with giant food installations, these foods are food we love to use banana ketchup. How many food/dishes can you think ofthat banana ketchup is used? Watch my vlog to see how many, it is more than 10 dishes and food and not just fried dishes or spaghetti or lumpia and fried chicken and eggs!
The Catsup Museum does not only promote education and Philippine history in an entertaining manner, but a means to encourage and advocate the importance of science in food manufacturing.
