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.

Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. One such restaurant is Putien,  whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated. It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.

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.

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!
