Romantic Valentine at Ilustrado

A romantic ambiance plays a big role when having a special meal with your beloved. This Valentine's Day, Ilustrado highlights a five-course Valentine meal starting with an Amuse Bouche of Bagnet Mini Sliders.


This sliders are made with thrice cooked pork belly in homemade hoisin sauce layered with vegetable slaw and cilantro in a black charcoal bun.

Then comes an Artisan bread basket with chicken liver pate and butter, and choices of appetizers, soup and main entree.


Rosed Watermelon and Lychee Bavarois completes the meal on a sweet note. These are rose-soaked watermelon balls and lychees on light layers of Bavarian cream and almond dacquiose.

You can pair your meal with wine, coffee, or a cup of tea.

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.
