Kor-Phil Culinary Academy: A Quarantine ‘Break’
No, I don’t mean I escaped from quarantine, silly. *hihi
Never was in
quarantine/isolation … Well, other than self imposed. *tahaha (I do enjoy my own company and my personal daily ♪ ♫ ‘to the window, to the wall’ ♫ house tours. )
Whoa, the first foodievent I’ve been to since pandemic started; the last one seems so long ago. I am grateful it’s just a few minutes away from home base, I don’t have to travel far for food = The Flower Cafe PH‘s new location, across from SLU Main’s Gate 2. =D
So, you suprised to see me? And well before Chinese New Year even. Best wishes to all of us for the Year of the Tiger.
This will just be a quick one though for I’m letting the photos do the talking and drool inducing on you. =)) Done reading the menu above? All right, here we go.
Cream of brocolli soup, one can’t really go wrong with cream of whatever veg soups. Easy to eat, one flavor-packed spoonful after the other and healthy, too. That lavender herb butter baguette toast is a great accompaniment to the soup. When it gets soaked by the soup = Zing! And that little hint of sweetness from the lavender bits, I take it Ate May and her flower expertise was a sure advantage for Batch 3. ^^, They got to play around with flower power.
Interesting that I’m a hardcore potato head but this appetizer didn’t really take the pedestal for my tastebuds. Still glad for potatoes and you know it, it went into my gob regardless of the basicness. Yes, flower and all, into my gob. *hee
After appreciating every facet of this edible terrarium, nothing was left … I even tried to look for something to scarpetta/wipe that diamond platito clean of the dressing. =))
There’s a lot going on in this plate. See the baby carrots taking a peek at us from underneath the meat slice? Loving the meat’s bed of alfalfa sprouts, and the asparagus spears that had such a fresh crunchy quality to them.
A different steak plate for they used a … I think that’s a beets coulis. It brought an umami factor to the sirloin pieces we sliced. =)
The most notable thing to me for the petit fours is the ever so delicate choco leaf garnish on two of the cakes. Shimmering silver specks on the baked blueberry cheesecake one, and bronze-y/golds on the choco moist. I also just recently realized, I like orange in cakes so that strawberry sponge cake with fresh fruits was a pretty memorable bite. With the chocolate chip cookie, there goes flower/foliage powers again where it was mint choco-like, just with that tiny mint leaf. Nyum!
Thank you so much, Ate May for inviting Race and me to try your batch’s degustation spread. Congratulations; another feather in your cap. \m/
Visit Kor-Phil Culinary Academy’s Facebook page, fellow foodie, for updates on enrollment and classes. Who knows, it’d be you inviting your binging posse over to your very own final presentation event to showcase your new and improved kitchen stylings. =b
Be safe, and keep safe, everybody! (“,)

X Marks the Spot for Good Baguio Foods is a personal blog. Everything posted in this blog is PERSONAL OPINION DERIVED FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE and since TASTE can be pretty SUBJECTIVE, should NOT be taken as THE NORM or the LAW OF DINING around in the City of Pines.
Its (prosaic =b) contents are meant to help with the question “san tayo?”/where do we go? in relation to eating out in Baguio, to ENCOURAGE EXPLORING (eatsploring) and TRYING NEW THINGS offered in the City of Pines.
By all means, eat where you want to eat and eat what you want to eat. May you have a great experience with all the places you visit and may all the restaurants you go to deserve a ton of treasure chests! (“,)
(Also, if you have any second thoughts about a certain place you arrive at, please DON'T LET THIS BLOG BE THE REASON YOU ARE FORCED into ending up anywhere. If the restaurant doesn’t have what you want, please FEEL FREE TO WALK AWAY.)
