My Lee Kum Kee and me


Cook with the Masters and Lee Kum Kee

Lee Kum Kee recently concluded Cook with the Masters, a Lee Kum Kee weekend cooking festival, that featured the best chefs the Philippines has to offer with such greats as Chef Bruce Lim, Chef Eugene Raymundo, Chef Him Uy de Baron, Chef Sau del Rosario, Chef Ernest Reynoso Gala to name a few.



I was able to witness one of the masters Chef Him Uy de Baron, as he showcased his skills in the kitchen with the help of Lee Kum Kee products that brought his cooking to a whole new level of good taste and great creations.


Beef Bulgogi Taco with Chili Garlic Sauce


Grilled Hoisin pork chops with Grilled Peach Salsa


Mushroom, Chive and cheese dumplings


Chef Him Uy de Baron amazed the audience with his quick and easy Lee Kum Kee recipes, Making use of the LKK Chili Garlic Sauce, the Premium Oyster sauce, the ever so sweet and tasty Hoisin Sauce and XO Sauce that has won fans from all over the world.

Lucky audience members of the cooking demo also got to show their skills in the kitchen as they shared the kitchen and the stage Chef Him cooking the special recipes as well. As the chefs shared the step by step process of the recipe, they also guided the demo participants as they cook with the masters.

Attendees of the cooking festival also had a lot of fun as they participated in the various activities during the cooking weekend festival. The interactive booth area called Lee’s Kitchen gave the participants a hands-on experience of the products, and a deeper appreciation of the brand’s heritage.



Thank you Lee Kum Kee for making life tastier for us.  Thanks to Chef Him Uy de Baron for the tasteful treats!  If you want to have a taste of Chef Him's delectable creations you can always drop by his restaurant in Nomama Artisinal Ramen in Quezon City.

Aquaknox Vietnamese delights


Goi Cuon (P100)

I love Vietnamese foods, they offer an alternative to our everyday fried foods and I'm glad Aquaknox came into play.  As much as I want to go to Vietnam, work restraints me, so here I am enjoying the best of authentic Vietnam delights at the comfort of our home country.

On top is Fresh spring rolls with shrimps, pork, lettuce and vermicelli noodles.  This appetizer kinda reminds me of our own fresh lumpia, but a smaller version of course.  All over the world there has been so many variations of these, such are the burritos of Mexico, shawarma of the Turkish, but I would say this is one of the healthiest there is.


Canh Ga Chien Voi Toi (P 150)

Crunchy fried chicken lollipops with garlic and scallions, with tomatoes and lettuce on the side to garnish.  This is one appetizer I love!  Crunchy oh so yummy, I just hate it that these chicken lollipop wings are naturally small, I just can't enough of this.  Confession I finished one whole plate on my own ssshhhh.....

Mango Tree Bistro - a fusion of Thai flavors


Modern fun Thai dining at Mango Tree Bistro

It's my second time to dine at this classy fine dining bistro right smack where it happens in Greenbelt 5, Makati.  Their first branch being at Trinoma Mall was also a big hit among their patrons and has been getting rave reviews from food critics and bloggers alike.  They must be doing something right! I mean delicious! so to say.

They have an interesting take on their foods, and they have a diverse menu, surely you will enjoy the choices that Mango Tree Bistro has to offer.  As we may all know, Thai food generally has a spicy and sweet base, but what's good about this is that, you have the option to add or lessen the spiciness of the food.  So that you could still enjoy the goodness of Thai food without too much spice, as other would prefer.
