Reviving the ole' Blog

Time to renew my presence in the blogosphere. It's my first blog entry for the year. I'm aware that the first quarter is almost officially over, and my backlog is 5 months long. In restaurant kitchen parlance I'm "in the weeds" but I'm going to fight back!

Partial & random checklist for myself of unblogged stories: Christmas family reunion, dinner at Lolo Dad's, Chef Giorgio Bucciarelli @ Volare, bloggers' event @ Crepes & Cream, bloggers' event @ Café Provençal, Tangerine, Trattoria Gourmet, Katre, Belissimo, The Baconator, Benjie Pedro's Chocolate Appreciation Seminar, Chef Gene Gonzalez' book launch, ...

Time to get to work.

Evil snack

It's half past midnight. I only had a few slices of pizza around 6pm so naturally I'm hungry again. I've put together a plate of reheated leftovers from Monday's Spanish Tapas lesson: smoked salmon filled pastry, saffron rice with morcillas (Spanish blood sausage), Canalones stuffed with a forcemeat of chicken livers & calf brains and topped with béchamel, Mondongo Serrano (a spicy ox tripe dish with almonds, sort of a lightened, tomato-less callos). I'm finishing it all off later with a single dark-chocolate truffle. Can you say "cho-les-ter-ol"?! Teka sumasakit na yata batok ko hehehe.
