F1 Hotel Manila presents LUZVIMINDA 6: Timeless Flavors

Litson Liempo Tinomok by Chef Chubby
F1 Hotel Manila brings to us the much celebrated 6th Annual Filipino Food Festival, Luzviminda 6 : Timeless Flavors, launch last June 7, 2018 at the hotel's renowned restaurant, F All-Day Dining. 

This year’s celebration is a collaboration of F1 Hotel’s executive chef, Angelo “Chubby” Timban, together with guest chefs, AJ Reyes and Zhe Jacinto, created a memorable feast for all of us. Upping the ante, Luzviminda is the culmination of our chefs’ talents and collaboration, bringing their skills and personal recipes to the fore to create the kind of authentic Filipino cuisine that would set your palate on a journey around the Philippines.  And set our palattes in our pursuit to make Filipino cuisine, a worldwide phenomenon.

Dinuguang Baboy Ramo
Each chef exhibited their own highlight dishes; Chef Chubby’s delightful centerpieces were Insarabasab and Kalabasa Flan from Luzon; other regional dishes were Bulcachong and Pocherong Baka ni Tatay Ipeng in which dishes supplemented Chef Chubby’s flexibility in both creation and presentation of his expertise. 

Pocherong Baka ni Tatay Ipeng
Another specialty is the Dinuguang Baboy Ramo, do note that fresh ingredients including the baboy ramo were flown in fresh from the provinces as they are not readily available in the metro, which made this dish ever more exotic yet so distinctly Filipino

Tamales Blanca
Ox Tail Bulalo
Meanwhile, Vizayas was showcased with Chef AJ’s appetizing Kinilaw na Lobster and Sinuglaw while also serving Adlai and Smoked Corn Salad and Tamales Blanca that stemmed from various regions of the country where Chef AJ familiarized himself with to craft such delectable recipes. 

Do note Chef AJ's Ox Tail Bulalo and Adobong Bone Marrow, are both exciting and literally takes your breath away, if you know what I mean.  Love the creativity and how simple Filipino ingredients and flavors can be so captivating, and so mouth watering.

And of course, the feast wouldn’t be as satisfying without Mindanao’s Chicken Piyanggang and Beef Korma by Chef Zhe and her genuine Grilled Bicol Express and Raspberry Piaya that she effectively developed through diverse culinary aspects that can only be found in our country’s rich and beloved customs.
