Le Cellier Wine Degustation At Le Cafe Curieux

Le Cafe Curieux is one of the most interesting cafes I've been to in the metropolis. Maybe its the ambiance and the food, and of course, the people behind Le Cafe Curieux.

As its name implies, the cafe has a lot of interesting things to offer. There was a time when they hosted some art exhibits, hosted an album launch, wine pairing, etc.


It was a lovely night when Le Cafe Curieux and Le Cellier hosted a wine pairing. Presented that night were five wines from Le Cellier- 3 rouge, 1 blanc, and 1 rose. Among the three colors of wine, I particularly liked the rose and the blanc (white). They're fruity and mild tasting than the rouge (red).


Here's the food pairing for the wines. There are several cheeses- blue cheese, camembert, brie, gruyere, and 2 more which I can't identify. Cold cuts: ham, salami, prosciutto, etc. Salad, pickled onions and baby jerkins, grapes, and walnuts.

Its quite interesting to note that the flavor of wine when combined with the different kinds of cheese or meat/ fruit, changes. Same with the blue cheese which I'm not really fond of, but when paired with grapes, loses its saltiness and becomes sweet and creamy. Great with the white wine that we're having also. Thanks to Monsieur Bernard Flour of Le Cellier for that tip.

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!
