Jolly University In Letran College

On its second year, the Jolly University Tour this 2015 goes to 15 competing schools and one of them is Letran College in the walled city of Intramuros. Colegio de San Juan de Letran is quite a popular school and its been around for ages. Think Jose Rizal.


The Jolly University Tour aims to promote not only culinary lessons but also aims to bring about the creativity of the competing teams within the school. The winning team would then compete with the other schools to win the cook-off challenge and join the Jolly University Boot Camp.


Chef Mitchie Sison points out that "passion" is very important in order for one to be successful in life. There's also the need to fire that passion because without any action, your dream to succeed will just go to waste.


Here are the Letran College cook-off contenders:




Ms. Nina Daza- Puyat, EIC of Appetite Magazine gave the future chefs and the chefs-at-heart some encouraging words about cooking and promoting Filipino food in other countries. She also stresses that the world is now ready to embrace Filipino cuisine with open arms as what happened in Spain when she attended a food expo there.


Here's the winning team- Queen Mary Ann Boliche, Acel Jeff Beso, and Cyril Jerome Manning. Congratulations !!!

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

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.
