Loire Valley, (pronounced as lwa) aside from being a wine region is also known for its chateaus and fruit orchards. In 2000, UNESCO included a part of Loire Valley to its list of UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Guests from the French community in Manila as well as some from the media enjoyed the evening sipping wine.

Here's a list of wine pairing choices although you can be adventurous and just trust your instincts and palate with wine and food.


I particularly liked the Pouilly Fume Blanc AOC 2011 Les Deux Cailloux- Fournier Pere et Fils with cheese and lobster. So good! Then I had the Anjou Rouge AOC 2010 'Clos du Saut au Loup' Domaine Dozon with foie gras. Actually, the waiting staff at La Veranda were very helpful with the wine choices when they see the food on our plates. They're also quick to suggest which wine goes well with this particular food.

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!

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood.
