A Taste of NOMA in Manila!?

NOMA Sous Chef Yannick & Pastry Chef Louise Pop-Up Dinner in Manila!-82.jpg
NOMA by Rene Redzepi is one of the top restaurants in the world. So when Sous Chef Yannick Van Aeken and Pastry Chef Louise Bannon -- who both worked in NOMA -- visited the country on a quest to savor the best of Philippine flavors, the Manila Food community was abuzz with excitement! :)

Together with Chef Robby Goco, they hosted a private pop-up dinner for Manila's top chefs, foodies, and food editors in Aleth's Kitchen. The former NOMA chefs were fascinated with Philippine ingredients, and were challenged to use it in a memorable degustation in Makati. :)

The dinner experience was a historic moment because of the cultural foodie exchange between Belgians and Filipinos. And it was also a foodie celebration because Filipino Food and our very own ingredients were getting the attention they rightly deserved by the top chefs in the world. 

Here's a photo essay entitled "A Taste of NOMA in Manila" to immortalize the experience...

PORKETTA MAN is a secret Porketta-on-the-go business by Ram Jorge that is now making waves in the lechon-loving foodie community in Manila. Thanks to Michi Calica for giving me the tip on this and for Chef Sau for raving about it and sending me a sampler. :)

Instagram
Fruit Garden's Velvet Fantasy and Island Sparkle-9.jpg

THE FRUIT GARDEN is a luxury jam brand proudly from the Philippine Islands. It's the only local artisanal jam maker that uses the French way -- prepared in small batches using copper cauldrons and using 100% natural products with no additives or preservatives.

They are 4-time winners and graduates of the Ultimate Taste Test series:

This 2013, they launched their latest Christmas flavors, Velvet Fantasy and Island Sparkle, together with Charlie Co's "Recipes of Love" painting, and new variants of Pam's Risa Chocolates using the festive luxury jams.

I think these are their best luxury jam offerings to date, with an artistic packaging to boot. These are limited edition flavors that would make great gifts for the 2013 Christmas season!
