Escapade Philippine à Paris

Recently I was invited to an event in Paris with my dear friend Victor Magsaysay cooking.

The venue was:

La Cuisine Paris
89 Boulevard Saint Michel
75005 Paris

He played with some provincial Filipino recipes and refined them to make some stunning presentations using all these lovely fresh ingredients purchased in the markets of Paris.

The execution was decidedly eastern, with a nice western polish to them.

What can I say? I'm sorry I missed this event because I was still waiting for my residency permit authorization to come in.

Read more about this event and Victor here.

Special thanks to Yusuke Kinaka for allowing me to use his photographs in my blog.

Anncoo: Sorry I haven't got any recipes, it's just the menu. :) However should you wish, I can get Victor to give me one, just for you! ;)

M, I am sorry to hear you missed this event. The dishes looks so intricately done, like minature works of art. Stunning is a very appropriate description. Thanks for sharing...

Anncoo said...

Thanks anyway. Is really alright, so please don't trouble ~ I understand.

Sounds fun! Stupid residency permits have permitted us from traveling in the past too. (Missed a wedding because of it one time).

Love the name "dirty ice cream". I don't know french, but luckily chevre is still chevre in English and I'm pretty sure the other ingredient is dark cocoa/chocolate???

Sounds pretty interesting combination. French and Filipino, still hard for me to imagine (not that fond of fusion food). But, I am sure they are good.

Elra: I think the taste of the food was quite genuine. Only the presentation was a bit 'French'!
