Loyal readers of FOOD Magazine recently got treated to a pizza and pasta class by Chef Nancy Edralin and Chef Portia Baluyot, and Project Pie chefs. Food Tastings is a joint presentation of FOOD Magazine and Lifestyle Network.


This is the first leg of series of Food Tastings lined up by FOOD Magazine and Lifestyle Network for 2015. Participant will get to learn more about recipes on health and wellness, power breakfasts, and sweets. 

For the first leg, the guest chefs shared about their expertise about pasta and sauces, while Project Pie (the official venue partner), guided the participants in being creative with their pizza creations. 


Chef Portia shared her useful cooking tips especially in making pasta sauces. She mentioned that adding a bit of white wine in your sauce will make it taste more special. She prepared Chicken & Chorizo Summer Cream Tomato Pasta.


On the other hand, Chef Nancy conducted a hands-on cooking lesson for three lucky participants from the Food Tastings event. They made Conchiglie with Sun-dried Tomato and Goat Cheese, Seafood Pasta with Squid Ink Sauce (Pasta Negra), and Pasta Portobello.

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.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)


Holiday Specials at Ilustrado

Filipinos pride themselves when it comes to holiday season get-togethers with family, friends, colleagues, etc. They even try to outdo each other when it comes to discovering new goodies and delicious food finds.

And because Ilustrado Restaurant knows that delicious food is a special highlight of any get-together, it has a whole array of mouthwatering choices for everyone.
