6 OCTOBER 2013 WWW.YUMMY.PH
I have a confession to make: Im addicted to Instagram.
When were eating out, my friends and family know that
they have to wait for me to snap a photo before digging in.
(Yup, Im one of those people, but hey, its part of my job!)
Ive always loved taking pictures and Im thrilled that todays
smartphones come with such excellent cameras. Im taking
more pictures than ever before and its so much fun being able
to share these snaps instantly online. Hooray for technology!
Yummy joined the world of Instagram months ago, and
its been a blast sharing our photos and connecting with our
readers online. Our @yummyph account (follow us if you
havent already!) is a wonderful way to share new restaurant
discoveries, supermarket nds, cooking tips, and behind-the-
scenes snaps. We love being tagged in your photos when you
try Yummy recipes, too!
Want to know how to take Instagram-worthy food
photos? In this issue, Miguel Nacianceno, one of our go-
to photographers, shares tips, tricks, and must-download
apps for the best photos possible. One of my favorite things
about Instagram is that theres so much visual inspiration
to be found there, and its truly amazing how smartphone
photography has almost been elevated into an art form.
So this month, we have a challenge for you: Upload your
best food photographs to Instagram and use the hashtag
#yummyph. Well pick the yummiest, most creative ones to
share on our Facebook page!
Ready, set, snap! See you on Instagram!

FOOD STYLIST
What I did for this issue Shared kid-
friendly recipes and easy upgrades adults
can make for For all ages. It was my
rst time to do a recipe feature like this. It
was both interesting and fun, as with any
Yummy assignment!
Currently busy with... Food styling
projects and consultancy for a few
clients.
Homemade masterpiece Lately, Ive
been making lots of panini sandwiches
at home. I use leftovers as lling, like
roasted vegetables, sauted mushrooms,
and bottled sardines. I always keep a
stack of diferent cheese slices in the
freezer so I can easily add a couple to my
sandwich anytime.
Pantry must-haves Butter and steak! We
also make sure that we never run out of
pork belly, fruits, greens, rice, olive oil,
garlic, sugar, Japanese salt, and pepper.
Cool cravings When the weather is
cooler, I always crave for tang yuan or
chong wan yiglutinous rice balls lled
with peanut paste in hot soup.
Kiddie favorite Hongba (Chinese stewed
pork belly) with lots of sauce and rice. Plus,
mangoes for dessert!

Toto Labrador
PHOTOGRAPHER
What I did for this issue Shot this
months Weekend Entertaining. I
always enjoy my shoots with Yummy,
especially since theyve all been stress-
free and fun. Plus, we even get to eat
while working!
Photography beginnings My dad
was always into photography, so he
basically introduced me to the craft. I
took up Fine Arts at the University of
the Philippines. Right after nishing a
photography class there, I decided that
was what I wanted to do. I pursued it
further and got my BFA in Photography
from the Art Center College of Design in
Pasadena, California.
Photography philosophy Keep it
simple and dont overthink.
Homemade masterpiece I recently
prepared a pasta dish of penne with
zucchini, cream, and blue cheese sauce.
My wife thought it was pretty good!
Most unforgettable meal It was this
simple place in Macau that served the
best baked clams Ive ever had. Also,
my rst taste of sushi in Tokyo as a kid
when a family friend invited us over to
visit.
Comfort food favorites Anything that
reminds me of home, like my lolas
adobo and my moms apple crumble.
Pantry must-haves Butter and bacon
are always present in our pantry!
Cup of warmth Cofee has always been
my favorite hot beverage, especially
during these cooler months.
Favorite Yummy assignments Some of my
favorite recipe features are the breakfast
recipes from June 2013, the sausage feature
from October 2012, and the wraps from
March 2012.
Currently busy with... miradips, CowKing
Great Steak (my steak restaurant), and
Sandwicheese; plus, I also manage the
operations for Banapple. Im also currently
developing new dips and sauces for
miradips in preparation for Christmas.
Culinary background Watching Nora
Dazas cooking shows inspired me to work
in the kitchen. Then, I attended certicate
courses on Fundamentals of Culinary Arts
and Fundamentals in Pastry Arts at ISCAHM.
I also trained under Chef Myrna Segismundo
at Restaurant 9501.
Homemade masterpiece I make the best
grilled lamb chops. Its been a favorite of my
friends for so long.
Most unforgettable meal Chashu Ramen
at a small restaurant in Asakusa, Japan last
June. The pork was served separately on a
small sizzling plate, plus the broth was just
so avorful.
Cool cravings Ice cream and bibingka are
two of my faves during this time of year!
Kiddie favorite I loved La Cibeles churros
with hot chocolate when I was a kid. I
also have good memories of my yayas
sweet spaghetti and Aristocrats chicken
barbecue.
By the book I love all of Ruth Reichls
books, but Comfort Me with Apples has
always been a constant favorite.
Mira Angeles
CHEF AND FOOD CONSULTANT

What I did for this issue Developed 5
new recipes featuring everyones favorite
chicken. Working with Yummy is a
welcome break from my usual routine.
The editors are really nice and I always
enjoy talking about food with them.

Ideas
SNACK O LANTERNS
Let Halloween revelers snack on these
sweet fruit cups! Slice of a thin part of
the bottom of an orange to make it stable.
Slice the top of and scoop out the orange
segments; set aside. Use a small knife to
make the eye, nose, and mouth details.
Repeat with 5 other oranges. Remove white
pith and seeds from orange segments.
Slice segments into smaller pieces. Mix
with 1 (432-gram) can fruit cocktail (syrup
drained). Spoon fruit back into the orange
cups. Chill before serving. Makes 6.
SPOOKY PIZZAS
Have your kids personalize their own scary
pizzas! You can try making mummies, bats,
and cobwebs out of cheese, too. Combine
1
/4 cup tomato sauce, 1 teaspoon sugar, and
1 teaspoon McCormick Italian seasoning in
a bowl; mix well. Spread on a 6-inch store-
bought pizza crust. Top with chopped ham.
Using scissors, cut cheddar cheese slices to
make ghoulish shapes. Place black sesame
seeds on top of cheese to make the eyes
on each ghost. Bake in an oven toaster
until cheese melts and crust turns golden,
about 5 to 8 minutes. Makes 1.
PEANUT BUTTER DENTURES
A bit of peanut butter makes fruit even
more appetizing for the kiddos. These
monster mouths will be a hit with the
boys! Cut 2 apples into quarters. To make
the gaping mouth, use a small knife to
slice out a wedge from each quarter.
Spread a thick layer of peanut butter on
the cut surface, and add marshmallows
for the teeth. Makes 8.

KOOKY CUPCAKE CREATURES
These spooky cupcakes are perfect for Halloween. Bake 1 (200-gram) Maya
party cupcake mix according to package directions. Let cool on a wire rack.
Make the frosting by combining
1
/2 cup softened butter, 1 cup confectioners
sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 4 tablespoons milk. Add 2 drops red food
coloring and mix until well combined. Frost cooled cupcakes. Stick marshmallow
strips in the frosting to make hairy spikes. To make googly eyeballs, cut a large
marshmallow in half and attach chocolate buttons onto it with a dab of frosting.
Gently push into the frosting just above the cupcake liners. Makes 5.

BOOKSHELF
QFormer Yummy editor Angelo Comsti always
wanted to recreate his Lola Ponyings famous taisan
cake, but its been years since she passed and no
one in his family was able to properly write down
the recipe. After many attempts, he still hasnt
been able to come close to the cake he remembers
eating in his childhood, but the experience made
him realize one thing: Heirloom recipes are national
treasures and he wanted to write a book dedicated
to preserving them. From Our Table to Yours (P795,
National Book Store) is a treasure trove of over 50
beloved family recipes from some of the countrys
culinary icons: Tonyboy Escalante of Antonios,
Joel Binamira of Market Manila, as well as Yummy
columnists Aileen Anastacio, Jun Jun de Guzman,
and Joey de Larrazabal-Blanco. Its an impressive
collection of classic recipes and regional dishesa
celebration of Filipino cuisine and family feasts. Lola
Ponying would be proud.

THE DILEMMA You bought a carton of cream to use in a
recipe, but you have a lot left over. The box says that
once opened, its best to consume everything within 3
days. Is there a way to extend its shelf life?
WHAT TO DO Pop the sealable carton of cream in
the freezer and just use it some other time! Yes,
manufacturers try to discourage you from doing
so, but thrifty home cooks and bakers, including
renowned pastry chef and cookbook author David
Lebovitz, freeze cream all the time. So when you nd
yourself with a large carton of cream, you can either
freeze it outright, or do what we prefer: measure out
cupfuls of cream and pour into freezer-safe containers
before freezing. You can use it more efciently this
way. Before using, defrost the cream by letting it thaw
in the refrigerator overnight. Give it a good shake to
make sure the butterfat does not settle on the bottom.
If the cream looks grainy even after thawing, heres
another tip from Lebovitz: Whisk a little sugar into the
cream to make it smoother in consistency.
Yummy LESSON
F REEZING CREAM
We
asked:
My daughter just turned two, but this early, just
including her in the cooking process is a good
motivation for her to eat what I plan to serve her.
She likes helping out by getting the things I ask
her to bring me and even tasting the food to see if
it still lacks seasoning. I make sure to cook what I
know she likes eating because its a good start to
getting her to help out as well.Mar Ngo-Tan
When we plan our weekly menu, I always include
my kids in the discussion. This way, we avoid
wasting food and having too much left over. I also
bring them along when I do my grocery shopping,
so I can teach them to make better choices when
it comes to the food they eat.Lia Sebastian
One of the things I teach my kids whenever
theyre with me in the kitchen is the importance
of cleaning up. I always ask for their help when
I clean my work area, segregate the trash, and
wash the dishes. Sometimes, I even assign one of
them the role of chief cleaning ofcer to make it
fun and ofcial.Luis Cortez
I ask the young ones to do the fun and messy steps
in the recipe! They love mixing gooey chocolate,
kneading dough, cracking eggs, and tasting cakes
after theyre iced.Kulet Sabanal Alturas
I gave my daughter her own kiddie apron that
matched what the rest of our kitchen staff wore.
There are days when we make her in charge of the
whole kitchen, letting her choose the recipe for
the day and making everyone else her assistants.
Its a fun activity! It hones her skills and gives her
condence in the kitchen. Maybe someday shell
be the head chef of a restaurant, too.Micic
Mark Mendoza Fabelo
I have two kids, ages 4 and 6, who enjoy
assisting me whenever I bake. Ive already taught
them how to sift our, beat eggs, and measure
ingredients. Aside from teaching them essential
kitchen techniques, the experience also becomes
a bonding activity for us. Shier Myla
I let my nephew and nieces read my copies
of Yummy. The beautiful pictures inside the
magazine inspire them to recreate the dishes,
so I help them follow and prepare the recipes. It
always turns out great! Now they want to become
chefs one day.Cyrs Macherspiel

Merry Moo
at SM Aura
Merry Moo is located at the lower ground
oor of SM Aura (near the supermarket and
Chinabank), Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
For more information, email merrymoo@
ymail.com or visit their Facebook page at
www.facebook.com/Merrymoo.icecream.
Merry Moo has been at the forefront of Manilas homemade ice cream scene
since its debut at Mercato Centrale in 2009. That was several years ago, and
while the brand is still a xture at many weekend markets around the city,
theyve also begun putting up kiosks at different shopping malls, all with the
goal of bringing your favorite frozen delights closer to you.
Their third outlet is located at the recently opened SM Aura. Head down
to the lower ground oor and youll nd Merry Moos kiosk located under
the escalator, just steps away from the supermarket. Artist Jamie Bauza has
decorated the booth with cheerful illustrations that bring the brands fun spirit
to life. Here, ice cream acionados can have their x of any of Merry Moos
creative avors, like the wildly popular Sea Salt Caramel (a perfect balance of
sweet and salty), Strawberry Basil, Candied Bacon, and Earl Grey Tea.
That avor roll call says it allwe can always count on Merry Moos chief
ice cream ofcer Kelvin Ngo to dream up different combinations that are
consistently surprising and consistently delicious. Who would have thought
that Pop Rocks candy would work in ice cream? In their Pop Rocks and
Mallows avor, a hit with the kids and the young-at-heart, it does.
Theres more to Merry Moo than fun avors, too. To ensure quality, the ice
cream is made in small batches using locally sourced ingredients (even the
salt in their Sea Salt Caramel avor is organic and harvested in Mindoro). With
ice cream this delicious, creamy, and made with love, youll be smiling from
ear to earjust like Merry Moos trademark grinning cow.
Yummy
Ideas
With an awesome selection of
avors, the hardest part will be
deciding which one to try.
Each cup
comes with
a generous
serving of
ice cream.
You can have
two avors in
one cup, too.
(P70 to P90
per scoop)
Cant get enough of Merry
Moos ice cream? Bring
home a hand-packed pint
in your favorite avor.

About the columnist


Joey de Larrazabal-Blanco started cooking in earnest out of absolute necessity
a continent away from home with no one to feed her. She then promptly
and totally ung herself into a one-woman love aair with foodprocuring it,
preparing it, and ultimately, consuming it. She carries no credentials except for
her passion and is rm in her belief that anyone can learn to cook. She recounts
her own gastronomic exploits in her blog, 80breakfasts.blogspot.com.
I now have another little
mouth to feed. Although
milk is still his sole source of
sustenance, I excitedly await the
time when I can initiate him into
the wonderful world of solid food.
Just as I did with my rst child, I
spend those seemingly endless
nursing hours daydreaming about
what I will be feeding him.
Slowly introducing my babies to
my favorite avors and spices will
always be a process I enjoy. One
of the beliefs I hold when it comes
to feeding young children is that
there is no such thing as kid food
and adult avors. Kids will eat a
lot of things we normally think as
being too grown-up for them. How
do we know what they like anyway,
if they are only just starting to eat?
Another thing I believe in is that
introducing diferent avors early
on, when your child is still too
young to say no or run away, helps
build a solid foundation for better
eating later on.
Of course, anything you make
to feed your baby should get the
green light from your pediatrician
rst. These recipes are certainly
not rst food but perhaps a
close second. Ive made these
for the stage when your child
has already tried these fruits and
vegetables one by one in order
to rule out allergies, so please
proceed with these caveats in
mind.
Many shy away from spices and
stronger avors in baby food but
the idea that our babies should
be eating bland mush is a great
misconception. As long as you
introduce them slowly and in
moderation, you will be opening
an exciting new world of avor to
your little one. And foodto me, at
leastshould always be something
thats celebrated with excitement.

Heres something that will
surely please cookie butter
fans: Speculoos Cookie Butter
Rolls! These are very similar to
cinnamon rolls, but we replaced
the lling with the popular cookie
butter spread. I have to admit that
at rst I didnt quite understand
why people were raving about
this spread, then I tried it and now
I know why. I prefer the crunchy
version, just as I like my peanut
butter chunky. There are several
cookie butter brands out in the
market now, but Yummy also
published its own recipe last June
so you can make your own at
home and use that as well.
To get the perfect dough,
measure your ingredients properly
and accurately. To avoid tough and
dry buns, add the our a little at
a time during kneading so that
you dont end up overfeeding
the dough. The end result should
look smooth and elastic. Let the
dough rise for the prescribed
time, and then roll it slowly so
that the dough will spread easily.
Also, use a ruler as a guide when
cutting the rolled dough so you
come up with rolls with the same
size and height. This will ensure
uniform baking and doneness.
These are best eaten a few
minutes after theyre baked.
Store any leftovers in an airtight
container in the refrigerator then
heat in a toaster oven until the
buns are warmed through. Serve
it with a cup of cofee or English
breakfast tea. Happy baking!

Baking time 12 to 15 minutes
1 (7-gram) packet instant yeast
(around 2
1
/4 teaspoons)
1 cup warm milk

1
/3 cup sugar

2
/3 cup butter
2 large eggs
4
1
/4 cups bread our
1 teaspoon salt
FOR THE FILLING

1
/3 cup butter

1
/2 cup speculoos cookie butter

3
/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup crushed Biscof cookies
(optional)
FOR THE GLAZE

1
/2 cup butter, cubed and softened

1
/3 cup speculoos cookie butter

3
/4 cup confectioners sugar

1 Combine yeast and milk in the bowl of
an electric mixer. Set aside for 5 minutes.
2 Attach the dough hook to the electric
mixer. Add sugar, butter, and eggs to
the yeast mixture. Run the mixer on low
speed to stir the mixture.
3 Gradually add the our and salt; knead
until mixture forms a smooth, elastic
dough.
4 Transfer dough to a greased bowl,
cover with a damp towel, and set aside
in a warm place. Allow dough to rise until
it doubles in size, about 1 hour.
5 Punch down dough, then transfer to
a clean and dry work surface. Roll out

wide, about
1
/4-inch thick. Set aside.

speculoos in a bowl; mix well.
8 Using a spatula, spread the softened
butter mixture evenly over the dough.
Sprinkle brown sugar and crushed
cookies (if using) all over the surface.
9 Starting from the edge closest to
you, roll the dough into a tight log. Roll
evenly until you reach the other end,
then pinch the end of the dough gently
to seal and tighten the roll.
10 Using a sharp knife, slice the dough
into 2-inch-thick slices. Place on a
greased baking pan.
11 Bake the rolls for about 12 to 15
minutes or until golden.
12 Meanwhile, make the glaze: In the
bowl of an electric mixer tted with
the paddle attachment or in a regular
mixing bowl, cream softened butter
and speculoos together. Gradually add
confectioners sugar. Beat until smooth.
13 When the rolls are baked and done,
spread glaze over the rolls while still hot.
Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes, then serve
warm.

When it comes to beloved
family recipes, this dish is
always at the top of our list. A
mishmash of Filipino and German
avors, this is a dish invented by
our former cook who truly enjoyed
preparing food for us. Our family
loves this casserole, and given how
quick and easy it is to put together,
its what wed always whip up
whenever we had unexpected guests
for lunch or dinner.
The casserole is also incredibly
versatile since you can use all kinds
of sausages. I used the Italian garlic
kind in this recipe, but its easily
adaptable. We even tried it with
Vienna sausages once and it still
tasted good! Try it with your favorite
kind of sausage, too.
SAUSAGE AND
POTATO CASSEROLE

Whats your favorite comfort
food? Mine is a bowl of freshly
cooked fried rice. I would eat this
often growing up, and even now,
its a quick and easy meal-in-a-bowl
I can whip up after a long day at
work. Good fried rice only takes
two components: a great mix of
ingredients and day-old jasmine rice.
And with so many combinations
possible, there is no way anyone will
ever grow tired of it.
This months invention is Mushroom
and Bacon Fried Rice. I whipped
this up after coming home late one
night from a shoot and seeing fresh
mushrooms, leftover rice, and bacon
in our fridge. Using these ingredients,
it only took me 15 minutes to come up
with a very satisfying dinner. I used
peanut oil because it has a higher
smoking point, allowing me to cook
the rice at a higher temperature,
which is crucial to making really good
fried rice. Peanut oil adds additional
avor, too! If youre counting calories,
you can swap the peanut oil with
some light extra virgin olive oil and
use brown or red rice instead of white.
Itll be just as good!

About the columnist


For Sari Jorge, food has always been
instrumental in bringing her family together.
Thanks to a doting grandmother who made
sure her grandchildren knew their way
around the kitchen, she has been cooking
since she was 10 years old. These days, she
channels this same love for cooking into a
thriving business, 25 Mushrooms Kitchen,
where she teaches cooking classes for
household helpers. Aside from food, Sari is
passionate about playing squash, collecting
paintings and antiques, and traveling.
Have you ever tasted baby back
ribs so tender that the meat
practically falls of the bone with
the slightest nudge? Remember how
appetizing and delectable the meal
was, how it made you want to forego
the fork and knife and just eat the ribs
with your hands?
This recipe for fall-of-the-bone
baby back ribs is a tried-and-tested
one that adults and children alike will
love. While you can always order this
dish at restaurants, its worth learning
how to make at homeits a great
family meal and itll be even more
special if you know how to prepare
it yourself. When my son invites his
friends over, I make sure I serve this
because its usually a hit. I always
prepare this for family gatherings and
events, too.
The secret in making the recipe
more tasty lies in two things: the
sweetness of the sauce and the
tenderness of the meat. To be able to
achieve these, you should prepare the
recipe in advance as the ribs need to
be braised for quite a while. Prepared
the right way and braised slowly until
tender, youll be able to get the fall-
of-the-bone experience at home as
well. Happy cooking!
BABY BACK RIBS
Serves 4 to 6 Prep Time 10 minutes
Cooking Time 1 to 2 hours
1 kilo baby back ribs (American
ribs)
1 cup chopped white onions

1
/2 cup sugar (add a little more if
you want it sweeter)

1
/2 cup tomato ketchup
1 teaspoon iodized salt
1 teaspoon black ground pepper
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
(we used Lea & Perrins)
3 tablespoos soy sauce
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 tablespoon allspice
4 cups water, plus more as needed
coleslaw and corn cobs, to serve
1 Place the ribs in a large casserole.
Set aside.
2 Mix the remaining ingredients
together in a bowl. Add mixture to
the casserole with the ribs. Place
over low heat and simmer for 1 to
2 hours or until the ribs are tender.
Add more water to cover the ribs, if
needed.
3 Remove the ribs from the
casserole. Bring the sauce to a boil
and cook for a few more minutes
until it thickens.
4 Brush the ribs with the sauce. Grill
ribs over a prepared charcoal or
electric grill for 1 minute per side.
Serve remaining sauce, coleslaw, and
corn cobs on the side.

A paminggalan located right outside the
kitchen and next to the dining area is used
to store teapots, plates, and cutlery. The
stained glass doors are repurposed garage
doors from an old Iloilo mansion. Opposite
page: The Bautista kitchen is a beautiful mix
of stainless steel and rustic brick.
The old and new
The original Bautista kitchen was built over
30 years ago, with bricks sourced from an old
warehouse in Iloilo that was being torn down.
The doors to the kitchen are repurposed
garage doors from an old mansion in Iloilo
as well; the paint was scraped o and stained
glass inserts from old windows were installed.
The Bautistas were happy to give these
materials new life, and in turn, these rustic
elements gave their home soul and character.
10 years ago, parts of the kitchen
were renovated to make functional
improvementschanges in ooring,
additional storagebut the elements that
made the space so special were kept intact. It
was important to us to preserve the kitchens
traditional features, but we also wanted a
kitchen that was very functional, shares Jean
Bautista. The renovation sought to address
that concern, with the addition of a center
island and the installation of an overhead rack
upon which to hang pots and pans. Today,
brick walls and stainless steel appliances
stand side by side in the family kitchen, a
treasured mix of rustic and modern.
The kitchen, accessible from three separate
entrances in the house, is clearly the heart of
the Bautista home. Its a buzz of activity on
this Saturday morning, with Jeans daughter
Camille making fresh pasta for lunch. When
she was younger, Camille would watch her
mom and Hermie, their beloved family cook,
preparing dinner, and would sometimes try
to help out. Years later, Camille has become
a passionate cook herself, nding fulllment
in making things from scratchpizza, ice
cream, and pasta.
As Camille busies herself with lunch
preparations, Jean points out more of the
kitchens standout features. Instead of
installing an air conditioner in the room,
the kitchen was designed to maximize cross-
ventilation. The kitchen island, with its resin
counters (chosen because of its non-porous
and waterproof properties), provides much-
needed space for prep work and mise en place,
as well as additional storage underneath. The
extra space also means that the familys most-
used appliances, like the juicer they use every
morning, can be left out on the other counter
for easy access.
Asked if theres anything she still wants
to change in the kitchen, Jean laughs and
says shed still like more storage for all the
things they've ended up accumulating over
the years. But extra storage aside, shes happy
with the kitchen she has nowa beautiful
space that combines modern conveniences
with traditional features, where the past can
happily coexist with the present.
The Bautistas kitchen is a well-designed mix
of traditional and modern elements.

Clockwise from top: Maggie keeps her kitchen organized with a few simple space-saving
solutions, like this pegboard. The hooks can be easily moved to accommodate more pots
and pans. Cookbooks and coffee mugs are stacked on top of the refrigerator. A magnetic
strip holds knives and kitchen shears. On a wall-to-wall shelf above the sink, plates and
glasses used daily are stored within easy reach.

WWW.YUMMY.PH OCTOBER 2013 65
Clockwise from top: Maggie loves
collecting pretty dinnerware, and the
cupboard is the perfect place to store her
finds. The dining table a few steps away
from the kitchen is also sometimes used
as a prep area. Placemats, paper straws,
and tea towels are stored in the dining
table drawers.
decorate your kitchen
with framed prints! maggie
chose to frame this dish
towel, a gift from a friend,
for instant wall art.
Maggie Adans bright, happy kitchen is a
direct reection of her decorating style. It
didnt start out looking as good as it does now,
though. But once the walls were given a fresh
coat of apple green paint and the dark brown
cabinets were painted white, the room started
to come together.
From there, Maggie pored over shelter
blogs and books to rene her vision for the
space. The area next to her sink was meant for
a washing machine, but she decided to have
a cupboard built in its place. Maggie loves
bargain-hunting for ceramic bowls, teapots,
and plates at Uniwide and Dapitan, and the
cupboard is the perfect place to store her
pretty nds. The cabinet doors were covered
with chalkboard paint to give her a place to
write down her grocery list.
Given the kitchen's limited space, Maggie
knew she was going to have to nd another
way of storing her pots and pans. The
solution? A pegboard, painted in the same
apple green hue as the walls, maximizes the
space available in an awkward corner between
the refrigerator and one of the cabinets. Pots,
pans, colanders, as well as oven mitts and an
apron, are neatly hung on hooks, keeping the
kitchen organized and doing double-duty as
wall dcor, too.
The renovating process was also a lesson in
compromise. I originally wanted to line the
kitchen walls with subway tiles, but I found
out that it would be too expensive, Maggie
shares. Thats still something I want to do in
the future, though. She also plans to purchase
a wheeled utility table eventually, as most of
the prep work has to be done on a narrow and
cramped countertop, or on the dining table a
few steps away from the kitchen. Still, despite
having to make a few concessions, Maggie is
thrilled with what shes been able to do with
the space. My kitchen is a happy place. I love
baking and cooking, so I love that I get to do
that here.
The bright side
Maggie Adan turned her apartment kitchen into a bright,
happy place with a few clever and creative ideas.

WWW.YUMMY.PH OCTOBER 2013 67
Clockwise from top: Mel is
excited to teach her son Mati
the basics of cooking and
baking once he's old enough.
The kitchen island, which was
customized to accommodate
Mel's height, helps make the
kitchen more functional.
When Tim and Melanie Jimenez were building
their home, the kitchen was one of their top
priorities. Mel, a professional food stylist,
envisioned a spacious kitchen that was both
clean and practical. Given our love of food
and cooking, we wanted lots of counter space
and an island in the middle that could serve as
a prep area, she says.
The couple took advantage of the
construction process to customize kitchen
details to their liking. They chose to have
storage in a combination of open shelving and
cabinetry. The shelves house the things they
use often: coee cups, saucers, plates. Nearer
to the stove, seasonings, spices, sauces, herbs,
vinegars, and oils for cooking are neatly
lined up and conveniently within reach. Basic
baking ingredients are kept in jars out on
the counter as well, with larger bags of rells
tucked away in the cabinets. On the other side
of the kitchen, next to the refrigerator, is a
standing pantry with pull-out shelves for easy
access. Each shelf in the pantry is designated
for certain items: for example, one shelf for
cereal, grains, noodles; another for milk,
juice, and drinks. A louvered cabinet beside
the refrigerator houses dinner plates, glasses,
and accoutrements for coee and tea. The
cabinet door is covered in chalkboard paint,
allowing Mel to write down the familys weekly
menu on it.
The custom-built island in the middle of
the kitchen is Mels favorite part of the room.
I like the ow of activity it encourages, she
says. The island is the center of preparation,
and around it you have the sink, stove, and
refrigerator. Mel had their contractor
build the island specially for her useshe
found most commercially available kitchen
islands and utility tables to be too low, so she
requested one with a taller height to minimize
the strain on her back while shes working.
Having recently given birth to an adorable
baby boy named Mati, Mel is excited to teach
her son the basics of cooking once hes old
enough. When I was a child, my rst activity
in the kitchen was helping my mom properly
measure dry ingredients for her carrot cake.
Ill teach him that, as well as how to use a
scale. But if working in the kitchen interests
him before he can properly do either, Ill have
him wipe down surfaces and bring dirty items
to the sink to teach him the importance of
the clean as you go system! There are many
more memories to be made in the Jimenez
home, and it warms the heart to know that
this clean and practical kitchen will be witness
to it all.

Turn off the ash.
Thats right: No ash.
Not now, not ever. Flash
coming directly from your
smartphone will most likely
be harsh and unattering.
More importantly, it might
bother your fellow diners.
2
That being said, indirect, bright,
natural light is almost always the best.
By indirect, we mean not directly under
the harsh glare of the sun. Taking a photo
beside a large window, or under a shade
or a translucent canopy allows for a nice,
difused kind of light to fall on your dish.
3
Your smartphones camera or the app
you are using to take pictures with will
most likely have a focus function. When
viewing a food subject through your
phone camera, try tapping on other areas
of the screen to play with focus. If you
have two or more dishes, you can tap on
one so that the phone cam can prioritize
that one and defocus on the other.
4
Other apps go even further and allow
you to select focus and exposure
points separately. This is a slightly
advanced function thats actually easy to
gure out and make use of. By tapping
and dragging, you can set the focus point
on the dish to keep it sharp and bring the
exposure point on another part of the
screen to brighten up the subject. Check
out the FAQ section of your favorite
photography app or watch video tutorials
to learn how to maximize the apps
features to your advantage.

Make use of negative spaceleave a lot of
room around the dish or ingredient that you
are shooting. This allows for other elements to

You want your photograph to be
able to tell a story. While it can be
tempting to zoom in on a single dish, we
encourage you to expand your horizons.
Instead of taking a close-up shot of your

consider your other options. Snap a photo
of her chopping vegetables for the dish

the spread of dishes she prepared that

Lastly, you dont have to take a

It may be a special meal for sentimental
reasons, or its a feast that really tastes
awesome, but sometimes, it may not
necessarily make for a good or interesting
picture. Less is always more and quality
over quantity are good rules to live by.
Put your phone down and simply enjoy
the meal for what it is.
By denition, lters
exaggerate, totally alter,

They also afect contrast

taken photo will need little
exaggeration or alteration.
Maybe an image will need
its shadows taken up a
notch or it might need to
be brightened, but if you
shoot it right the rst time,
you wont need to stray far
from the original image.
Remember: You just want
to enhance the photo and
make it look like a better

Y
oull need a good 15 minutes to
browse through the 10 pages
of pure text that make up The
Clubhouses menu. The experience is
slightly daunting, but only for those
uninitiated to the promises of The
Clubhouse, which is comfort cuisine
that actually comforts. Co-owner
Sharlene Tan, a food stylist by day and
one of Yummys columnists, put a lot of
thought behind the concept, matching
beautiful plating with the pretty interiors
but keeping everything straightforward.
Breakfast is a prominent feature in
their culinary repertoire. Theres an
entire page dedicated to omelettes on
the menustraight-up cheese, salmon,
and one caloric bomb called the
Mexican Hangover which plays around
with chorizo, diced tomatoes, and
gooey mozzarella to create a classically
delicious meal with a bit of Latin air.
Not into omelettes? Try their other
breakfast dishes, like the bestselling
Vigan Logganisa Hash, which combines
two favorites in one.
Elsewhere on the menu, youll nd
sections like Rice and Shine (a spoonful
of the Tuyo Rice Bowl and youll wish
you could have it every day), Meaty
Mornings, and Breakfast in Bread.
Technique is hardly a priority in home-
style dishes that focus more on good
avor, but The Clubhouse demonstrates
precision poaching in their Bennys
Classic and Eggs Atlantic. Capers are
added in the latter, setting up a more
pronounced tang that works so well with
salmon.
Dishes like the Bagel and Lox and the
Mushroom Soup (chunky enough that
you know its the real deal) are perfect
company during long, lazy afternoons.
But for something heartier, the pastas
are al dente, in manageable proportions
that are lling without being overly
heavy. The Mushrooms and Cream is
as fragrant as trufe oil can be, with
minced mushrooms clinging to the
noodles to keep things from getting
surfeit.
But what is comfort food without
dessert? The menu boasts of a long
lineup of bakes, but count only on those
in the glass display case to be available.
The Chocolate Lava Cake aunts a
darker shade of brown around the edges,
like it stayed a minute too long in the
oven, but the ganache is a creamy
revelation that melts inside the mouth,
dissolving the deep chocolate cake into
a luscious splendor. The Apple Crumble
is as warm and fuzzy as apple pie, with
the ice cream served on the side as if
to say the confection is good enough
without that extrait is, but ice cream
always makes things even better.
The Clubhouse Magnolia is the type
of restaurant that youre bound to
keep coming back to. Plus, you realize
that theres a sunny side to the once
stressful, expansive menu: It gives you
more reasons to come back to try the
restaurants other offerings.

to Japanese yakiniku. Nonetheless,
I appreciated the beefs avor, and I
loved the ceremony of piling beef onto a
lettuce leaf and eating it with my hands.
If there is one thing you have to order
on the menu, its the Pan-fried Catsh
Fillet. There are no words for how tasty
this dish is! The catsh is tender and
chock full of avor that runs across the
umami spectrum. One bite and you
know that the next time youre at La
Petite Camille, youll be ordering this
dish again.
For dessert, we tried the Pandan
and Yellow Mung Bean (Ben Da Lou),
which is essentially a more delicate,
deconstructed sapin-sapin. Pandan
jelly is layered with coconut and served
with yellow mung bean pudding. The
serving may look tiny, but this dessert
is heavy and a little goes a long way.
The coconut lling teases the tastebuds,
your eyes thinking that youve eaten a
regular pudding while your tongue says
otherwise.
Even though I frequent La Petite
Camille, I acknowledge that their
quality can vary radically. But I will say
this about the restaurant: Their staff is
always eager to please. You can see it in
the little things, like constantly relled
water glasses. Great service aside, the
best reason to keep going back to La
Petite Camille, in my opinion, is the
catsh. Its not often one encounters
a dish so well cooked that its almost
sublime. After trying that, I know Ill be
coming back to La Petite Camille more
oftenand this time, Ill be ordering
more than pho.

I
m a regular at La Petit Camille, as
Im always craving for Vietnamese
food and its one of the few
restaurants in the Greenbelt area
offering this cuisine. I usually order pho
and the Vietnamese coffee, but this
time, I thought Id bring company along
and order other things on the menu.
We started off with two of everyones
favorite Vietnamese appetizers, Summer
Rolls (Goi Cuon) and Pomelo Salad (Goi
Buoi). The latter had sweet pomelo
pieces resting atop a bed of fresh greens,
served with a sweet sauce. The former
is composed of prawns, vermicelli, and
lettuce, wrapped in rice paper and
served with peanut sauce. The prawns
were impressivefresh and reasonably
sizedwith the peanut sauce adding
dimension to its subtle avor.
The House Special Beef with Lettuce
Wrap (Bo Nuong Vi) was an interesting
dish because it was unexpectedly
very sweet, with a taste comparable
Vietnamese delights

Another great side dish at Ikkoryu


is the Chicken Karaage, which are
nicely fried and piping hot, with a
portion generous for the price. These
are certainly better than the Teriyaki
Chicken Wings, which are rather bony
and dry.
Ikkoryu opened its rst branch in
Manila last March, and after almost
eight months of operations, its clear that
local ramen lovers share the Japanese
reverence for its southern star. Now
with three branches, all located in malls
and decorated with their trademark
calligraphy-adorned wooden posts by
Japanese artist Sensyu Yasuko, Ikkoryus
ramen is a great way to enjoy a little bit
of Japan in Manila this rainy season.
Bowled
over
Japans beloved
tonkotsu ramen takes
center stage at Ikkoryu
Fukuoka Ramen.
REVIEW BY DARREN MCDERMOTT
T
he area surrounding Fukuoka in
southern Japan is the spiritual home
of arguably the most celebrated
regional variant of ramen: tonkotsu.
The pork bone broth is the ultimate in
slow food. The preparation can take up
to 2 days of slow cooking on high heat
to release the marrow into the broth,
rendering its characteristic richness.
Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen brings these
time-honored traditions, ingredients,
and methods to its newly established
restaurants in Manila.
One of the most impressive things
about Ikkoryu is its approach to noodles.
Your server will ask you whether you
would like them hard (katame), medium
(futsu), or soft (yawarakame), an option
found in most tonkotsu restaurants in
Japan. It is generally recommended
to choose hard noodles to provide a
pleasing contrast within the bowl. In
addition, if you nish all your noodles
before the broth, you may order
kaedama or extra noodles.
The Ajitama Tonkotsu best
exemplies the Ikkoryu standard.
The soy-marinated ajitama (avored
egg) with lava-like yolks is perfectly
cooked, and the chashu slices nicely
complement the noodles and rich soup.
Toasted nori and chopped spring onions
subtly add avor to the broth.
The Black Garlic Tonkotsu is one of
the more unique bowls and is resonant
with the tradition of innovation in
Japanese ramen culture. The smoky
roasted garlic permeates the broth
without being cloying to the palate and
the oily consistency of the soup binds
this avor to the noodles and toppings.
The ramen side dish staple is gyoza
and Ikkoryus potstickers are serious
contenders. The thickness of the
wrapper is just right, holding together
the moist pork lling without detracting
from its juiciness. The dipping sauce,
however, was too vinegary, so perhaps
it would be better if Ikkoryu provided
the usual condiments of soy sauce, rice
vinegar, and chili oil for diners to mix to
their liking.

The Spanish chef behind Vasks extraordinary


menu of modern tapas talks to us about his
culinary roots and what he hopes to bring to
Manilas culinary scene.
J. Luis
Gonzalez
Eating
lunch
with
How did you get into
culinary arts?
Ive always liked food, so I
told my mom that I wanted
to go to culinary school.
She wanted me to have a
higher degree, so I studied
Business Management
instead. After four years,
I still didnt see myself
doing it, but I opened
my own lounge club and
managed it for three years.
It was good but working
at night gets really tiring.
I sold the business and
used the money to pursue
my dream of becoming a
chef. I went to the Basque
country, specically in
Bilbao, and studied there.
Youve built up a very
impressive resume since
then.
After cooking school, I
worked in Arzak, then in
El Bulli in 2008 where
I worked in the cold
room, where the latest
techniques were found
all around the kitchen. I
didnt work in Noma, but
I was fortunate to be able
to visit their kitchen for a
couple of days to observe
the chefs at work.
Tell us more about Vask.
What makes the food you
serve diferent?
Vask is a casual Spanish
comfort food restaurant.
We have both traditional
and modern takes on
tapas. We try to make the
cuisine fun and surprising,
modern and creative.
We ofer something new
in terms of avors and
textures, and even in the
presentation. The Dining
Room is for casual tapas
and pintxos while the
Gallery ofers a unique
culinary experience. One
thing thats
very important
to me is that
when people
come here, they
leave understanding the
concept. Fun things, cool
techniques, afordable
pricesat the end of the
day, thats what it boils
down to.
What can we expect from
your degustation menu?
There will be a lot of fun
and unique dishes with
traditional touches. It will
be two hours of a great
dining experiencenew
avors and excellent
food. We will ofer a full
degustation menu, which
is about 12 courses, and a
petite version with about
seven courses from the 12.
What inspires you?
Im inspired by familiar
combinations and
traditional avors, but I
make it a point to present
them in a fun, modern way.
Whats the most
important thing youve
learned after working in
renowned restaurants and
starting Vask?
Techniques come and go.
Whats more important
is that you learn how to
cook, to combine avors,
and to respect the food.
At the same time, be
disciplined and passionate,
and have a good attitude.

fresh-cut owers. Fill a plastic container or a tall jar with 1 to 1

water, tie the spears into a bundle, place the asparagus bundle upright in
the container, and store in the refrigerator. Remember to change the water
daily to prevent the ends from rotting. With this nifty tip, your asparagus

Flour tortillas may be Mexican in origin, but the versatility of this ingredient lends
itself to various applications. Use them to make burritos, quesadillas, and savory
wraps. Another idea: When molded in a mufn pan and baked, it turns into a crisp
cup that can be lled with fruits, chopped chicken, or salad greens. In this recipe,
we used our tortillas to make quick and easy pizzas! The result is a deliciously
crisp and thin crust. Try our seafood and pesto version, or experiment with diferent
toppings to come up with your own pizza creations.

MARIE GONZALEZ shares


recipes, ideas, and ways to
cook and eat healthier.
When I cook a vegetarian meal for my meat-eating family, I make sure it has bold, hearty
avors. Enter barbecue sauce, the harbinger of robust avors and the saving grace of
many meals. Most store-bought barbecue sauces contain high-fructose corn syrup and
mysterious natural avors and spices, things that are banned in my kitchen. I came
up with a homemade barbecue sauce that I always keep in stock for emergencies. It
keeps well for weeks in the refrigerator if stored in a sterilized glass jar (to sterilize, pour
boiling water into a jar and let sit for 5 minutes before draining). My favorite way to use
it? Brushed liberally over blocks of drained tofu before grilling. Give this recipe a go and
enjoy the smoky, savory avor the sauce adds to any dish.
Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in
a saucepan over medium heat. Saut
1 onion (diced) and 4 cloves garlic
(minced) with
3
/4 teaspoon ground
cumin, a big pinch of red pepper
akes, and a pinch of salt until
browned, about 5 minutes. Add 1
1
/2
cups canned diced tomatoes or tomato
sauce,
1
/3 cup molasses, 2 tablespoons
cane or apple cider vinegar, and
1
1
/2 tablespoons muscovado sugar
(or as needed). Bring to a boil, then
reduce heat to low and simmer for 30
minutes. Remove from heat and add
1
1
/2 teaspoons mustard and 1 teaspoon

Most peanut butters contain added
oil (sometimes hydrogenated!)
and sugar. The Ehje brand makes a
peanut butter without any of these
additivesperfect for diabetics and
those watching their sugar intake.
Ehje peanut butter is available at SM
supermarkets at P86.75 per jar.
Anything from the
plant kingdomfruits,
vegetables, nuts,
seeds, herbs, spices, mushrooms,
legumes, and whole grainshas
potent cancer-ghting powers. But
before we tackle foods that ght
cancer, we should cover foods that
encourage cancer growth.
Everyone has cancer cells in their
body. They lie dormant unless fed
a diet that encourages growth.
According to the National Cancer
Institute, 80% of cancers are due
to factors that have been identied
and can potentially be controlled,
and 80% of colon, breast, and
prostate cancers are due to dietary
factors.
Eating a plant-based diet and
increasing your intake of whole
foods can denitely help protect
you from cancer. A British Medical
Journal study showed that
vegetarians were 40% less likely to
develop cancer than meat eaters,
while a Harvard study showed that
daily meat eaters have 3 times the
colon cancer risk compared to those
who rarely eat meat.
So if your dilemma is where to get
protein if you want to avoid meat,
the answer is: everywhere else.
Brown rice and other whole grains
have protein. Beans, legumes, tofu,
and nuts are high in protein, too.
Vegetables have small amounts.
Bonus: all these ingredients have
ber, which has been shown to
lower colon, stomach, and breast
cancer risks, and help eliminate
carcinogens in the body. When you
eat a varied diet devoid of meat,
dairy, and egg products, you will get
enough protein and in the process,
protect yourself from cancer.

Let editorial assistant


IDGE MENDIOLA teach and
inspire you to use pantry
staples in creative ways.
1
Do the swich
Forget about hard-to-eat caramel
apples! These apple sandwiches are
where its at. Core one apple and cut into
1
/2inch-thick slices. Spread caramel sauce
on one apple round and sprinkle chopped
nuts, chocolate chips, or gummy candies
on top. Cover with another apple round to
make a sandwich.
2
Fruity apjacks
Gloomy Sunday mornings are best
spent eating homemade apple
pancakes. Simply grate apples and add
them to the pancake batter. For more
variety, add cheese and corn or use cubed
apples instead. Serve with cinnamon-
infused syrup.
3
Mussel mania
Baked mussels are a beloved
appetizer for many. But instead of
the usual cheese and garlic toppings, why
not use apples instead? Simply top each
mussel with caramelized onions, diced
apples, bacon bits, and a teaspoon of
cream.
4
Cheese is it
Want your kids to eat more fruits?
Tuck some sliced apples inside their
favorite grilled cheese sandwich. Adding
apples lends a sweet contrast to the salty
cheese. Make sure to grill the sandwich to
gooey goodness!
5
Apple of my eye
Looking for a hearty dessert on a
rainy day? Turn apples into vessels
of warmth: Remove the core and scoop
out the center of an apple, leaving a hole
big enough for the stufng. Combine
cornakes, nuts, raisins, cinnamon, brown
sugar, and butter; scoop into apples. Bake
until tender and top with ice cream, if
desired.

Meat of the matter

patties moist and juicy? Apples!

When Lorenzo Reyes couldnt


sleep one night, he instead
started working on a manifesto
for the small coffee business he
and his wife, Terri, had just put
up. Its a work in progress
which Lorie is shy about sharing,
but sufce it to say that the
mission statement runs entirely
on a handful of concepts: honor,
quality, and fairness.
At its face, Roaster Juans is a
specialty coffee line, established
by the Reyeses upon their
return from Australia, where
they trained as master brewers
and roasters. All the beans are
sourced from the Philippines
mostly single-origin from a town
in Benguet and hand-sorted for
quality. The value they add to the
product comes in the roasting,
which is done in small batches by
Lorie himself.
The end product is premium-
quality coffee, admittedly
expensive, but of such reliably
ne standards that its become
the brand of choice in several
ne-dining restaurants, including
those of Chef Jessie Sincioco,
who has commissioned her own
blend. The difference in quality
is so astonishingly clear: Roaster
Juans coffees are aromatic and
avorful, pure and complex.
But as the very presence of
Roaster Juans mission statement
might hint at, this isnt just a
premium coffee business. Theres
an underlying vision to this whole
thing, and that is to elevate the
entire coffee industry, from the
coffee farmers to the consumers.
Its about putting fairness and
equity back to the system, so that
small-scale farmers can reap the
benets of their labor, and make
the Philippine coffee industry a
presence in the global market
again.
Lorie and Terri became the
rst buyers to purchase directly
from farmers, teaching them
how to grade the beans and to
sort them, and paying a fair and
premium price for the choicest
beans. By giving the farmers the
proper impetus and the training
to produce quality coffee beans,
Roaster Juans has begun a small
revolution in their part of the
coffee world. The quality and
the raw materials are certainly
there for good coffee. And there
is willingness and motivation,
along with a growing audience
of people who appreciate it.
Theres a lot of power in doing
things right, Lorie and Terri
Reyes believe, and Roaster Juans
shows the way.
