SPOTLIGHT: Gerard Papillon

Gerard Papillon's name is synonymous with Pamora Farm. I already saw him years ago at the Salcedo Market but wasn't able to have a chat with him because I was feeling shy then. Then I saw Pamora Farm's booth at the World Trade Center and he's there. So I was able to have a friendly chat with him about Pamora and the healthy effect of free-range (organic) chicken as compared to the commercially grown (and headless) chickens.






And he is so nice and funny! I mean, being a French guy, that he is. Uber charming. And once he started talking, the Pamora booth was suddenly swamped with eager listeners. I didn't even notice a crowd when I arrive at the booth.

As for the free range chicken, they're a bit expensive that the ones being sold on the market and supermarket but you can really see and notice the difference especially for me and daughter. Both of us experience an allergic reaction if we eat too much chicken. Daughter even had an asthma attack before from eating chicken. And even if expensive, I really do buy free range chicken and I'm lucky that the grocery near our house stocks up on Pamora products. So in a way, this is not only an interview but I'm also thanking Mr. P for coming up with the idea to market these chickens. And I'm happy and honored to have met him. :)

Aside from selling whole chicken and chicken pieces, they are now offering chicken pate. Yum!

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
