It is Good Friday now for Catholics in the Philippines and the time is usually associated with fasting or abstaining from meat. Fish, seafood, vegetables and the occasional hunger are the order of the day.
Anyway, am sharing here a rather belated post about the Spanish cooking class I attended at The Maya Kitchen mid-March. On the podium was Spanish chef Chele Santiago who lords it over one of Manila’s celebrated culinary kitchens, Gallery VASK in Bonifacio Global City. It is rather expensive to dine at Vask, but those who attended this class took the shortcut. We got to see a former Michelin resto chef in action and got to sample his dishes without the hefty price tag. Haha.
The black ink risotto with seared scallops was utterly delish. I prefer this to paella negra anytime. This looks like a gourmet treat but at the end of this post, the chef kindly shared his recipe on how to make this at home.
