Jam-packed!

My first attempt at jam-making! I grew up in a household where my mother and aunts made jams and marmalades and other goodies. And it took me decades to gather up my courage and delve into jam-making.




Lovely pineapple bits. I have a suking fruit seller who pass by the house almost every day of the week. All I need to do is tell him what fruit I like.





Pineapple jam paired with cheese on top of crackers. Heaven!
After boiling the pineapple bits in tons of sugar, let it cool for a bit then pair it with your favorite crackers.

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.
