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

Ang Huling El Bimbo is the latest original Filipino musical produced by Full House Theater Company (FHTC) and Resorts World Manila.

Here are my thoughts on the musical…

MenhirSalento Wines: Chef Jessie Sincioco x Chef Musaro Rocco Roberto Dinner

There’s a booming appreciation for fine wines in Manila, a growing hunger among Manileños to know more about wines from the winemakers themselves. In the case of Menhir Salento, they introduced their Italian wines via a 4 hands wine pairing dinner with Chef Jessie Sincioco and Chef Musaro Rocco Roberto.
