What's the dish on Spanish Food?
Get a dose of the Spanish sabor at this month's scrumptious foodfest.
More than just your hip tapas bar of-the-moment, Spanish food is making its way to the forefront of the international food scene, especially with Spanish resto El Bulli being named as the best restaurant for the fourth year by the San Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurant Awards for 2009. Whether or not the judges were merely big fans of Spanish food, get a taste of what the fuss is all about at the Spanish Food Festival at the Tivoli.
Supported by the Embassy of Spain in Manila, get your fill of modern interpretations of Spanish cuisine by guest chef Andrew Zarzosa, a Spanish-born artist-turned-chef. Chef Zarzosa, who actually went to art school rather than culinary school, spent much of his youth traveling around countries like Mexico and Bermuda, which have had an influence in his cooking.
The food festival will also feature a cooking demonstration conducted by Chef Zarzosa, who plans to teach guests how to cook traditional paella.
Enjoy the food fete with an a la carte menu offered during lunch and dinner, or round up the gang for tapas night with Spanish hors d'oeuvres paired with vino.
The Spanish Food Festival will run until July 11, Saturday at the Tivoli, Mandarin Oriental Manila.
The cooking demonstration by guest chef Andrew Zarzosa will be held on July 11, 9:30 a.m. Fee is P 3,500, inclusive of a light breakfast and a three-course lunch. For inquiries, please call 750-8888.
