Hendrick's Gin at the Fairmont Makati-0671-2

This gin was quite unusual. While gin, most especially the London Dry variety, is characterized by the prominent taste of juniper berries, this craft, small batch of Hendrick’s Gin makes itself distinguishable among all the gins with its cucumber and rose petals scent and flavor. It’s really interesting, because this cucumber is starting to be […]

Brewhaus Venice Piazza Grilled Gourmet Grilled Cheeses Philippines-0621

So much trends in the Manila food scene over the past few years that people have even rated that Manila is one of the best places to be a foodie.

Granny's Old Fashioned Cocktail-0550

It actually came from an inspiration after re-reading nostalgic cider-filled memories of pubs in London, and a thought that cider might mix well with a bourbon based drink… …And then there was no cider. All that was left was apple juice. So, again, necessity being the mother of invention, and desperation being the mother of […]

The Tipsy Cook Ginger Vodka and Gin Asian Beef Shank Stew-0446

Those cheap infusion liquors have gone a long way since the first experiment for cocktails. Now, with the lack of ginger, a ginger infused vodka normally used for Moscow Mule was mixed in a recipe that integrates Chinese Braised Ribs and Filipino Bulalo. And those orange and lemongrass components? Absolutely delicious when partnered with bird’s eye […]

Remy Martin Louis XIII Resorts World Philippines-8089

Yes. It seemed surreal. This was shaping up to be something similar to that 650 Euro dinner at L’Astrance. A cognac that is out there in the market that has the value of rare gems. The bottle itself that is made from bespoke crystal makes up a fifth of its value, each bottle in itself […]

Braserie Cicou Le Bouchon Lyonnais Menu 2014-0616

There really is so much more to learn about French cuisine. Normally, people associate French cuisine with elaborate techniques and sticking to the classics passed on by world famous chefs, more haute cuisine (L’ Astrance, anyone?). Some people adore it, while some feel intimidated with the idea. Then that Paris trip showed how the Parisian […]

There’s just something about a meaty, succulent sandwich that just manages to find that spot in your brain to trigger an order of beer. Could it be the mere salt content that the sandwich filling has? Or it […]
