Two Chefs and a fundraising dinner.

Last night, just before the Shakespeare Turns Pinoy play, a fundraising dinner was held at the British School-Manila. Two UK-trained Pinoy chefs were featured -- Chef Amelia Ann Alba and Chef Eugene Raymundo. Barbara's also prepared a sumptuous meal of mesclun of greens, baked fish with spinach and sultanas, roast beef, fettuccine alessandro, asparagus casserole, and arroz a la cristina. It was heart/tummy-filling dinner.

Chef Amelia prepared chicken flambe-cordon bleu -- boneless chicken stuffed with ham and cheese, grilled in butter and flambed with white wine.

She also prepared toasted bread and butter pudding that was totally divine!

Chef Eugene prepared triple chocolate casserole -- a rich chocolate cake with earl grey-infused ganache, and topped with a delicious walnut cookie and chocolate ice cream!

I found these two very grounded. I had the chance to have a quick chat with Chef Amelia and what a nice person she is.

These cute little souls performed before dinner for the Ambassador. They danced so well!

Everything on the table that night was delicious. And it was an absolutely inspiring night, too.

Right after dinner, the lecture-show of Shakespeare Turns Pinoy followed. But that's for another blog entry.

Pin It!

Thank you, Chel. No, it's not puol. It's very heartwarming, actually. :) And it also reminds me to try harder, be better. :)
