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!

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.
