RECIPE: Salmorejo Soup

Using herbs is predominant in most traditional French cuisine and this Salmorejo is not an exception. Thanks to Chef Cara Davis and The Maya Kitchen for sharing the recipe.




Ingredients:

8 pcs plum tomatoes, cored and halved
1/2 clove garlic
1/2 pc small yellow onion, sliced
2 tbsp. sherry vinegar
1 day old baguette, 8 oz cut into large cubes
1/4- 1/2 water
pinch of salt
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

Garnish:

3 pcs hard boiled eggs, coarsely chopped
150 gms jamon serrano (cured ham), oven baked until crisp
rustic bread
olive oil


In a blender, add the mixture of tomatoes, garlic, onion, vinegar, bread cubes, water, salt, pepper and olive oil. Blend all ingredients until smooth. Add water if you find the soup too thick or add bread if it is too thin. Season with salt and pepper.

This soup can be eaten as is or garnished with chopped hard boiled egg and crispy jamon serrano chips. Serve with rustic bread and a drizzle of olive oil to finish.

Serves: 6-8

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.
