Did I mention that their outdoor tables are always candle-lighted at night?From the Museum Café, here are the new and not so new but recently improved recipes that will catch you and your special one’s delight as the cool winds of Valentine’s Day blow:
Chicken Malunggáy Terrine
It is commonly said that Malunggáy leaves contain more Vitamin A than carrots, more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach, more Vitamin C than oranges and more potassium than bananas, and that the protein quality of Malunggáy leaves rivals that of milk and eggs… We made a terrine with tender Natural Bago Chicken and layers of Malunggáy leaves, thinly sliced on bread or as main dish with organic brown rice and our rich salad.
Spanish Tapas; pork meatballs baked in olive oil, and cooked in concentrated tomato sauce with garlic and onion. As snack or as main dish with a choice of bread or organic brown rice and salad.
Also Spanish Tapas; Anchovies-Sardines coagulated in vinegar; marinated in olive oil with fresh parsley and garlic. As snack or as main dish with a choice of bread or organic brown rice and salad.
Indonesian style beef stew with Rudjak sauce. Sagay Brahman Cow with coconut milk, onion, garlic, lemon grass, ginamos, lankawas and moderate kulikot. The best with organic rice and of-course our fresh greens.
‘Half-Half’ ground beef and ground pork with pepper,salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, worcestershire, tabasco, egg, cream and breadcrumbs wrapped in our home made smoked bacon and baked. The best combination is with cooked red cabbage with apple, it will be there, and of-course our fresh greens and artisan bread.
‘Tarte Tatin’ Upside-Down Baked Tart
Tarte Tatin was first created by accident at Hotel Tatin in Lamotte-Beuvron, France, about 160 km South of Paris, in the 1880s. The hotel was run by two sisters, Stéphanie and Caroline Tatin. The story is that Stéphanie Tatin, who did most of the cooking, was overworked one day. She started to make a traditional apple pie but left the apples cooking in butter and sugar for too long. Smelling the caramelizing, near to burning, she tried to rescue the dish by putting the pastry base on top of the pan of apples, quickly finishing the cooking by putting the whole pan in the oven. After turning out the upside down tart, she was surprised to find how much the hotel guests appreciated the dessert. So far the history; we made two Filipino versions of this famous tart and replaced the apples with Tambis or Chico.
Amazing selections for the month isn’t it? Not only that, as I have mentioned before, these food selections are made from certified organic products that will add a healthy twist to the already tasty selections. Less guilt for your health and also your lovely date’s.
To compliment your special night, why not order some wines and other heart-warming liquor?
