Espresso 101

Yesterday, I attended the Espresso 101 class at the Philippine Barista and Coffe Academy. It was a half a day class about espresso. I admit I didn't know much about espresso and it wasn't my favorite type of drink, but after this class I have new found respect for it. There is a real difference tasting a good espresso. It is bitter but in a good way. I didn't even put sugar in mine because I like its bitter taste. I also learned that our country can be a great source of coffee, only if there are more technology and investors willing to invest in our country. Anyway, I had a fun time on this class and here are some of the pictures I took.

And here are other pics I took.

I had fun at this class and my love for coffee has gone deep because of it.

Le Bistro d'Agathe

I think I'm gonna post some of the old pics that I have. Sometimes I tend to forget to make a post about it but I still remember the taste and the experience from that restaurant.

My friend brought me to Le Bistro d'Agathe last year. It was my first time in a authentic french restaurant and I must say I love the experience.

I had a hard time looking for this restaurant since I don't know Makati well. But it was worth it once we were there.

The restaurant was simple and it wasn't that fancy at all. It wasn't intimidating as I expect it to be. The waiters are really nice and even the chef/owner went to our table to greet us and ask about food. It was a hospitable place.

For our appetizer we ordered Terrine (French Meatloaf). It was really good and I enjoyed eating it with bread.

For the main course, I ordered Ox tongue with Ravigote Sauce. I ordered it with potatoes. I am loving this dish. I love ox tongue especially if it was cooked well. And this was very tender and the sauce complimented it well. Ox tongue is a kind of meat that is hard to cook especially if you don't know how. This is why I love this dish because it was really cooked well.

My friend ordered Blue Marlin Fish with Lemon Butter Sauce. She said it was good for a fish dish.

For dessert we had Creme Caramel.

And Apple Pie.

 I like the Creme Caramel better because it wasn't too sweet like Leche Flan.

Overall I enjoyed my experience on this restaurant. I think I want to visit soon...

11th Philippine Food Expo 2012

Last February 23, 2012 I attended the 11th Philippine Food Expo 2012 at the Word Trade Center here in the Philippines. I really love attending different kinds of food expo because it exposes to different kinds of food and I learn a lot of things about the culinary world. From the latest trend in food to the newest product, there are many things that you can learn from these food expos. There are also some cooking demos and contests going on. Not to mention the free tastes! I really had fun at this event. Here are some pictures I took from this year's food expo.

I had a great time and I can't wait for next year! 

Keep on eating and blogging!!!
