Solenn: As real as it can get


If Solenn Heussaff would have it, she would spend all her Christmases in the Philippines. A true fan of Noche Buena and Pasko, she looks forward to a Real Holiday experience.

Born to a French father and a Filipino mother, Solenn spent many years abroad during Christmas. “May snow pero wala masyadong lights. ‘Yun ang gusto ko rito sa Philippines. Mahilig tayong mag-decorate. Kahit hindi pa Christmas, three months before, Christmas na agad.’’

Adding to that happiness is that she gets to spend time with her family, especially during Noche Buena, having dinner and exchanging gifts. Her mom and her brother Erwann are usually tasked to do the cooking.

“We always have cheese, caviar and ham. Pinaka-favorite ko ‘yung ham every Christmas,” Solenn confesses. Contrary to what others may think, the drop-dead sexy artist-actress is no vegetarian but a true-blue meat-lover. It seemed perfect then for Solenn to endorse Holiday Ham by CDO Premium as it brings together two things she loves – Christmas and ham. “I am happy to endorse a product I believe in. I love bacon, tocino and ham but I am very picky on which brand to choose. I want something that’s real and authentic. I hate extenders,” Solenn says.

When asked for a tip on how to choose a perfect Christmas Ham, Solenn has this advice – “Look for the net marks in actual hams, not just in packaging and ads. Only whole-meat hams can be smoked in ham nets and we know that whole-meat ham is the best choice.”

Solenn stars in Encantadia, A1 Ko Sa’Yo, Trip Pinas, and Taste Buddies.
