Finally met Matt Basile--popularly known as Fidel Gastro--last Saturday night at Chef Jessie's, for the Asian Food Channel's Kitchen Revolution Tour in Manila. He was here to promote the second season of his "Rebel without a Kitchen" show, which premiered last Sept. 11 on AFC.

He is known as Toronto's Pop-Up King and is popular for his food truck, Priscilla, which serves Toronto Cuban-styled sandwiches called ‘Extremo Sandwiches’. 

It was a pleasure to meet him in person and get a taste of the flavors Fidel Gastro is known for.

BIZU

About Bizu

We kiss one another to show gratitude, happiness, excitement, love, and affection. A kiss inspires. And this inspiration begets energy. This energy, in turn, begets creativity. BIZU was born out of this inspiration.

From this inspiration came the unique selection of cakes and pastries that were truly made to inspire. It all began with a dream to have an authentic Parisian Patisserie where the finest French pastries and European breads can be savored right in the Philippines. With much training and patience, our Filipino chefs have learned the magical art of the French Patisserie. Indeed, ensuring the most flavorful and artful products are brought to your homes is a labor of love.

From a kiosk/café at the third floor of Glorietta 4 that started operations in 2001, BIZU now has three more outlets in Greenbelt 2, Alabang Towncenter, and at The Promenade inside Greenhills Shopping Center. 

The menu includes all day breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner items. 

Customers are not to leave without the chewy pastel-colored Macarons de Paris that Bizu Patisserie is known for.
