Sam and Carla are getting married next month!
They asked me to help them select the menu for the reception and today we had food tasting at the Manila Polo Club.
Yay for me because I get to eat reception food two times! Today and on July 7!
Roasted Tomato Soup with Pesto
Creamy Spinach Soup with Parmesan Crisp.
Carla and I have similar taste in food. The winner of this round was the Tomato Soup!
Romaine lettuce, dried dates, peaches, toasted almonds, red onion, Danish blue cheese and cider honey vinaigrette.
Watermelon and Rocket Salad
Lettuce, baby arugula leaves, red and yellow watermelon, candied pili nuts and balsamic vinaigrette.
No contest. California Salad hands down.
If you know me very well, then you know I absolutely hate arugula and anything with balsamic vinegar.
Seafood and wild mushroom ragout puff cream sauce, truffle oil, onion leeks and parsley.
I loved it!!!! The best! I wish Sam and Carla would get married everyday just so I can eat this everyday.
I have to attend a refresher course on baking. I know the puff cases are hard to make but once I perfect it, I will be in heaven everyday!!!
Sorbet Intermezzo - Calamansi Sorbet
Grilled Fillet Mignon and Maya Maya Medley
Fillet mignon drizzled with beef au jus, pan seared Maya Maya topped with leeks.
Mushroom risotto and bouquet of vegetables.
Greek Yogurt Panna Cotta with honey walnut tuille, roasted walnuts and strawberry coulis.
Vanilla sponge, Chantilly cream, macerated strawberries, fresh strawberries, balsamic vinegar, strawberry coulis and fresh basil.
We chose the Greek Yogurt Panna Cotta for dessert.
I cannot wait for the upcoming nuptial of Sam and Carla!!!!
