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!

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity!

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!
