VASK Gallery: 40 Days & 40 Nights Degustation (Chef J. Luis Gonzalez x Chef Julieta Caruso) @VaskManila

VASK Chef J. Luis Gonzalez x Chef Julieta Caruso-20.jpg

VASK Gallery's 40 Days & 40 Nights Degustation is a collaboration of Chef J. Luis Gonzales and Chef Julieta Caruso, former Head Chef of Mugaritz (World's Top #6 in San Sebastian, Spain), based on their 40-day food trip to discover authentic Filipino flavors all over the Philippines.

The limited degustation menu highlighted native and everyday local ingredients presented in gastronomic dishes. Much of the inspiration behind this effort came from their collective desire to acknowledge the deep historical connection the Philippines shares with Spain, through sustainable cooking.

The resulting flavors from the collaboration were very memorable. Witnessing what can be done with Filipino ingredients was a mind-blowing experience. This was one epic dinner that changed the way I look at Filipino cuisine and made me feel proud to be part of culinary history in the making in Manila.

Here's our 40 Days & 40 Nights Degustation experience...

Emilio Moro x Rambla-45.jpg

EMILIO MORO Winery was established in 1891 in Northwest Spain. Now run by the 3rd generation of Moros, José & Javier, they produce one of the best Tempranillo (Spanish grape variety) Wines in the world. 

José Moro was in Manila for a visit and created a beautiful 4-course Spanish meal with wine pairing at RAMBLA.

I've started to appreciate wine because it adds a different dimension to my meal experience. I also love hearing the story behind the wine because I get to know more about the passion and culture of the family who created it.

Here's a photo essay of our Rambla x Emilio Moro dining experience...

THE BLACK PIG! Alabang's Secret Charcuterie, Bar & Restaurant by Chef Carlos Garcia @theblackpigmnl

The Black Pig-33.jpg

THE BLACK PIG is a Charcuterie (shop for prepared meat products), Bar & Restaurant by Chef Carlos Garcia, former chef at London-based Michelin Star French Restaurant, Gauthier Soho.

He -- together with first time restaurateur couples Steve & Tricia McDonald and Anton & Berna Garriz -- teamed up to offer well-curated, European-inspired dishes with Spain’s black Iberico pig as the highlight. They also offer signature draft beers and a good selection of wines.

The Black Pig has already been making waves in the foodie community. I couldn't believe that such a place could exist in the Alabang area at first, but it's great that it's located in the south for a more casual feel. It's also great that they're family-oriented and most importantly, affordable.

Here's our The Black Pig experience...

RAMBLA Rockwell: Spanish Mediterranean Cuisine by Chef Pepe Lopez @RamblaPH

Instagram

RAMBLA - Mediterranean Spanish - Our Awesome Planet-23.jpg
RAMBLA is a Spanish Mediterranean restaurant from the owners of LAS FLORES, with Spanish Chef Pepe Lopez as head chef, and named after the famous street La Rambla in Barcelona.

They specialize in Catalan Spanish food with Mediterranean influences. Its modern menu is like VASK, using Modern Gastronomy techniques, plus LU's Mediterranean food.  

It was fun ordering something new and exciting. But I think we got carried away trying out all the new dishes and pairing it with wine and their signature cocktail drinks.

Check out RAMBLA this holiday season!
