NEW RESTO ALERT: Artisan Emporium

Artisan Emporium is a relatively new concept store located in Estancia Mall in Pasig City. What's nice with Artisan Emporium is that aside from making their own breads, they do everything by hand- hence, the word artisan. You'd notice that the breads are not evenly shaped, the labels are all loving written by hand, the food being served also has some nice loving and tender touch.


So here are some of my fvaorites ---

Spanish bread and mini monay with choices of yogurt butter or liver pate with blueberry. I am not much into spanish bread but I do love monays, mini or not. Also, I do love liver pate so I literally slathered pate on my bread. Ang sarap! No kidding. I love the salty-creamy liver combined with the tangy-sweet blueberry. As for the yogurt butter --- I didn't realize how good it was until I had my first taste. Think buttercream! Alas, I'm still torn which between the two is my fave ...


Truffle mushroom soup. Perfect for those who are craving for some comfort food. You can either pair it with bread or as is. I am also fond of mushroom soup and its really hard to find restaurant/cafe nowadays that serves this kind of mushroom soup wherein you can actually enjoy the bits of mushroom. Thumbs up!


Chicken galantina with bread. Chicken galantina is another favorite. Artisan Emporium's chicken galantina reminds me of my lolas and mother's galantina. I did have a "ratatouille" moment during my first bite. This is a perfect meal for those who are craving for their lola or moms galantina. Better yet, treat your mom here. I bet she'll give the galantina a thumbs up :)

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.
