Lunch at the Nestle Wellness Club

Nestle is a well-loved brand that we all grew up with and I'm pretty sure that we always include an item or two of Nestle products whenever we go to the grocery. At home, we always have Milo and Nestle All Purpose Cream in the pantry. And as a toddler, my mother told me that I ate Cerelac and Gerber so when I became a mother myself, I also fed my daughter with trusted baby food brands.

So when the opportunity to be part of an intimate luncheon at the Nestle Wellness Club came, I didn't think twice about it. I'm also curious about the Wellness Club so it's definitely a go.



Chef Tess Sutilo entertained us with cooking tips using Nestle products and even taught us how to prepare Chili-Tofu Bean Nachos which is perfect companion for chillax-ing, movie-nights at home, or when you are entertaining at home. I'm sharing the recipe here and as per Chef Tes' suggestion, you can tweak the ingredients to suit your taste.


Chili-Tofu Bean Nachos

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups firm tofu, mashed
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1/4 cup diced green bell pepper
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
1 8g sachet Maggi Magic Sarap
1/2 chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
2 bay leaf, crumpled
1 tbsp Maggi Savor Classic
sugar and pepper to taste
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/4 cup water
1 cup canned red kidney beans
tortilla shells
1/2 cup Nestle All Purpose Cream soured with 1 tbsp calamansi juice
1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese

PRCEDURE:

- Put tofu inside microwave for 2 minutes to squeeze out water. Drain tofu and set aside.
- Heat vegetable oil. Add garlic, onion and tofu. Stir fry tofu until completely dry.
- Add bell peppers and diced tomatoes. Season with MAGGI MAGIC SARAP, chili powder, cumin, oregano, bay leaf, MAGGI Savor, sugar and pepper.
- Put tomato paste then add water. Cook for another 2 minutes then stir fry in red beans. Remove from heat.
- To assemble: Arrange a platter of tortilla shells, drizzle with soured cream and top with the prepared chili-tofu beans. Sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese.


After preparing the nachos, Chef Tess prepared a yummy concoction of Milo Dinosaur  which I wasn't able to take photo because the drink disappeared fast. I had 2 cups, oooops!


Lunch was a sumptuous affair that highlights Filipino food. Chef Tess prepared the dishes herself using the freshest ingredients plus Nestle products like MAGGI Magic Sarap and MAGGI Savor. My favorite was the Beef Mechado and the Green Papaya Fritters.




We bonded during the luncheon and learned more about Nestle and even discussed our favorite Nestle items and love life. At the Nestle Wellness Club, one can learn a lot of healthy and yummy recipes as well as interact with other members or even join the cooking demo hosted by Chef Tess.

Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.
