Bizu Patisserie Christmas Holiday Delights

Christmas is always such a joyous occasion for everyone and preparing food for the Noche Buena feast always takes careful planning especially when it comes to selecting special dishes for the family.

This year, aside from the Yuletide Crown Pork Roast of Bizu Patisserie and all-year round favorite macarons, Bizu introduces its Porchetta with Truffle Risotto. This is a slow-roasted pork belly stuffed with herbed truffle risotto. It also has crispy skin which is oozing with goodness.



            For appetizers Smoked Salmon and Caviar best served with Melba Toast or try Organic Liver Pate topped with Fresh Blueberry Jelly.
Bizu’s signature 10-Hour Roast Beef Belly is a melt-in-your-mouth tender and juicy US beef belly with crunchy vegetables and creamy mushroom sauce. Baked Salmon Rockefeller is Norwegian Salmon baked and layered with creamy spinach and topped with parmesan mornay sauce.
            There should always be dessert and one beautiful Bizu creation is Forêt Noire - Black Forest Cake with layers of chocolate genoise, chantily cream, chocolate mousse and black cherries soaked in kirsch syrup and covered with Belgian dark chocolate flakes.


            Noël Fruit Cake is Bizu’s take on the traditional favorite with Valrhona chocolate, pecans and dark cherries. Carrot Cake is carrot, fruit and walnut cake topped with cream cheese frosting and covered with chopped walnuts pressed all around the sides.
            Have lots of fun with Carousel Popcorn. Reminiscent of Carrousel de la Tour Eiffel in Paris, this hand painted round tin can comes filled with gourmet popcorn. Wind it up and hear the music of The Nutcracker.
            When you think of Bizu, you think of French macaron. Noël is delicious roasted chestnut and crème caramel in festive red and green. The Macaron de Paris Pyramid is a three-sided presentation of 40 of your favorite macaron flavors.


Better yet, wow your guests with a Melchor Croquembouche centerpiece, a tower of profiteroles filled with classic pastry cream and dipped in white and dark chocolate. It comes at a striking 12 feet tall of 60 cream puffs or a majestic 18 inch tall of 130 cream puffs.
            For your gifts or to serve as merienda and snacks, try Premium and Sugar Free Chocolate Truffles; Chocolate Clusters in milk chocolate and dark chocolate; White and Dark Chocolate Revel Bars; Mendiants in milk, white and dark chocolate, all sugar free plus one with fruits and nuts.
            Last but not the least, you can never go wrong with Bizu Ensaymada in Dark Chocolate, Classic Cheese, Almond Praline and Ube, Cheese and White Chocolate.

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

Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
