The Fruit Garden: 'Tis The Season of Giving

Spread love and jam this Christmas Season with The Fruit Garden's Luxury Jams. These jams comes in an array of delightful and exotic flavors that even the most fussy eater will find it hard to resist. Not only that, the jam collection comes in dainty gift boxes that any recipient would surely love.


I particularly love the Mango-Chocolate flavor which I love on top of saltines or plain crackers. Another favorite flavor is the Berry Duet, and of course, Raspberry. The latter flavor is best paired with chocolate muffin or chocolate cookie (for me).


These jams are perfect for breakfast (with toast or pancake), tea, or whenever you feel like having it. It also goes well on top of chiffon cakes for your after meal dessert. I have a friend though who likes to pair her jam with scones. Very English!


The Fruit Garden Luxury Jams comes in different collections or flavor pairings. You can check it here --- The Fruit Garden Collection.


Here's another look at the boxed jam collection. Prices ranges from P400 to P1,500 for the boxed collection while the bottles cost P160 to P380. Please do visit --- The Fruit Garden website for more details.


And if you are curious about the daintily designed boxes, this year's The Fruit Garden Festive Collection is designed by Valerie Combe Lamboissiere who began her earlier creative journey at maison Yves Saint Laurent designing patterns for clothing and scarves, as well as other textile design houses in England, France, and Italy. Come to think of it, not only do you get to enjoy these luxury jams, you also get to own the specially designed box that has a whiff of YSL magic. ;)

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.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)
