Date With Eric

Eric Kayser is my family's current favorite pit stop whenever we go to Powerplant Mall. It is located at the lower ground floor just beside the MarketPlace Cafe.


Eric Kayser descended from a line of traditional bakers so it is no wonder that it is in his blood. He rose from the ranks and apprenticed under the best bakers and won a lot of awards from competitions. He opened his first bakery on September 13, 1996 in Paris. To date, there are about 18 bakeries in Paris and a total of over 60 around the world including Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, and now in Manila.



A second branch is opening soon at the Promenade in Greenhills. Hurrah! I just live nearby. Hello lovely breads. :)

Chocolate Croissant. Daughter super love this and can eat about 2-3 if I will allow her. She even requested to bring some for her classmates. Yikes!


Salted Caramel Eclair. Hubby's favorite and mine too. This eclair reminds me of the ones by Monchen Gladbach, a bakery and pattiserie in Japan. I was able to taste Monchen Gladbach donuts (but it looked like an eclair) because a cousin hand-carried a big box after returning from her trip to Japan. Read about Monchen Gladbach here.

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.
