FOOD FINDS: Eric Kayser's Salted Caramel Eclair

We happen to visit Powerplant Mall after avoiding the place last December due to traffic and was surprised to discover that Eric Kayser was already open. Maison Kayser turned traditional bread into a work of art. He opened his first store in 1996 in Paris and has expanded to major cities around the globe including Hong Kong, Japan, and now in Manila.


The store in Powerplant Mall is located beside Rustan's Marketplace. I would have passed it by if not for the big orange sign. That's when I saw the eclairs!


It was already passed 7pm when we saw the shop so most of the breads were sold out already.


We were going to watch a movie so daughter chose the chocolate croissant (I think she got the dark chocolate one), and I got the dark chocolate cookie for hubby. The cookie was just okay but daughter was singing praised about the chocolate croissant. I had a tiny bite and it was good. The cookie and croissant costs P85 each.


Salted Caramel Eclair. This is mine, all-mine! lol .. Ate this at home. Really, really good and its worth the P120 price. Note to self: go back to Powerplant asap and hoard salted caramel eclairs. :D



PS. The store is still on its soft opening so they're still fixing things there. But that's okay since you'll be after the cookies, eclairs, breads anyway. :)

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.
