It's a great example of how to reinvent an old restaurant concept to meet foodies' evolving expectations.

The ERIC KAYSER Difference! Natural Liquid Leaven, Baked Fresh in Manila by French Chefs :)

Instagram

ERIC KAYSER MANILA

ERIC KAYSER is an authentic French Artisan Boulangerie in Manila, which is a licensed partnership between Eric Kayser and his local partners, Jacky Ang, Kelvin Gaisano, and Chris Tiu. Eric Kayser has 96 stores in 17 countries, with the Philippines as the latest expansion.

You should notice the difference in the taste and texture of their bread because of their signature Natural Liquid Leaven, which sets it apart from the yeast-based breads in Manila. Eric Kayser demanded to have a commissary from the start and sent his trained French bakers in Manila to ensure the top quality of the breads, following the tradition of using a long natural fermentation process, slow kneading, and small-scale production.

Gone are the days of flown-in frozen French breads. The key is to baking fresh daily using top quality ingredients and following a strict artisan production process. Once you've tasted the Eric Kayser difference, it will be very hard to appreciate other French breads in town.

Here's what we love about Eric Kayser...

LEMURIA: French Degustation with Wine Pairing of Lemuria's Bestsellers! @LemuriaGourmet

Instagram

LEMURIA Infinity 8-2.jpg

LEMURIA is a private dining French restaurant conceptualized by Mrs. Marina "Kitt" Schroeder, hidden in Horseshoe Village, Quezon City. It's name is inspired by the mystery behind the lost continent of Lemuria.

The cozy dining area is located on top of the Brumms Quality Wine Cellar, with a curated wine list from Germany, Austria, Romania, and other boutique wineries the Shroeders love.

After 8 years, it continues to be one of the most romantic garden restaurants in Manila. It never fails to lure lovely couples to dine because of its charm, focus on quality, and personal touch.

It's a bit nostalgic, reminiscing my initial post about this place: Lemuria's Mystique - a Romantic Restaurant in the Metro, and revisiting Lemuria after almost 8 years.

Sofitel's J’Adore Le Fromage: 101 Cheeses by Maître Fromagier Gérard Poulard
In celebration of Bastille Day (French National Day on July 14), Sofitel Philippines is featuring renowned Maître Fromagier Gérard Poulard, together with 100 premium and artisan cheeses (about P1M worth) from different high quality farms flown in from France.  

We attended the recently held media preview and it was quite interesting to learn about the French's love for cheese. It was also good to learn how best to enjoy cheese from a French Cheese Master.

I would like to share with you my favorite cheeses from Gérard Poulard's collection and my latest discoveries about cheese...

LARTIZAN Serendra: Boulangerie Française & Mariage Frères Tea Time!

Instagram

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-61.jpg

LARTIZAN is the artisanal French Bakery, Restaurant, and Tea Salon of the French Baker founder, Johnlu Koa.

It started as a boulangerie in partnership with Mickey's Delicatessen along Jupiter Street. Now, it has transformed into a French Cafe, with authentic French pastries and baked products, and a European cafe ambiance.

I love their signature teas from Mariage Frères in Paris.

We had the pleasure of dining with Johnlu recently and coming up with recommendations on having an awesome dining or tea time experience at Lartizan...
