Ultimate Taste Test Masters Edition Judges Scorecard and the Winners are…

Ultimate Taste Test Masters Edition 2018-125.jpg

The recently concluded 16th Annual Ultimate Taste Test, the longest running food event since 2008, was held at 55 Events Place along Scout Rallos St. in Quezon City. Some of the judges say this was one of the best UTT events yet because of the quality of the vendors, the online voting process and the impact to the food purveyors.

For this year’s Masters Edition, instead of getting the public’s vote, we brought in the restaurant industry’s Masters—chefs, food influencers and restaurateurs—as the judges. Their invaluable experience, advice and rating are highly essential especially to home-based businesses that are just starting out.

Set in a more intimate venue, the Ultimate Taste Test Masters Edition gave the vendors and Masters the opportunity to be more candid and personal.

We had almost a hundred judges and 26 vendors who supported this year’s event. We would like to extend our thanks to all our friends in the food industry who graced the event!

8 Unique Pasalubongs to Bring Home from Your Next Trip to Bicol

OAP-BicolPasalubong-4239

Bicol has always been a popular destination for both local and international travelers, as it is home to one of the most beautiful works of Mother Nature. Although shy to show its tip on most days, the Mayon Volcano’s perfect cone structure has continued to attract all forms of tourists.

This region is also popularly known for their cooking – especially when it comes to coconut or chili-based dishes. So much so that they have started to package the popular Bicol Express, Pinangat, and Inulukan in frozen bags for people to take home. While those alone already make for the perfect pasalubong, why not try other unique items?

Here are some pasalubong ideas I spotted on my last visit…

TAITUNG: 5 Reasons to Visit on your next trip to Taiwan

Located on the Southeast of Taiwan, Taitung literally translates to “East of Taiwan.” Taitung makes up for 10% of Taiwan’s total land area, but only holds 1% of the country’s total population.

Taitung doesn’t seem all that popular when people talk of Taiwan. It’s always Taipei, Kaohsiung, Keelung, or Taichung. If your idea of a great vacation involves relaxing hotels and easy, outdoor activities, then Taitung just might be the one for you.Read more

La Petite Parisienne Guide to Food and Wine Pairing

La Petite Parisienne is a wine cellar, deli, pizzeria, and events place all rolled into one. Offering some of the widest selection of classic and premium wines directly imported from France to Manila, it is only apt that they also take part in educating interested parties in the intricacies of wine and the best ways to enjoy it.

La Petite Parisienne offers a multitude of classes about wine, one of them being the Wine and Food Pairing. I don’t claim to know a lot about wine. In fact, I just go for a Moscato or a Rosé without thinking twice whether they match my food or not.

Here’s what I learned at the Wine and Food Pairing Class at La Petite Parisienne
