RECIPE: Chef Pradipta's Chicken Satay and Nasi Goreng

Last March 13, I attended a special cooking class in Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila. Guest Chef Pradipta Bayu Primpaputra of Hotel Pullman in Jakarta taught the participants on how to prepare traditional Indonesian dishes. This cooking class is also a part of the week-long highlight on Flavors of the World Series: Wonderful Indonesia at Sofitel. You can read more about it here --- Sofitel Manila's Wonderful Indonesia.


There's only a handful of participants which was really ideal since we were all able to listen well to what Chef Pradipta was saying. Then we also got to make our own satay marinade, etc. It was pretty exciting and we were really excited to eat what we prepared. The downside though was that after all the cooking preparation, you will end up smelling like food. Best to wear comfy clothes and shoes. We were also given an apron and a chef's toque, and a certificate. Yey!

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma. Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west. For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.
