Two more couples in our Bible Study Barkada (That’s what BSB stands for, sorry to disappoint you Nick Carter and Howie fans! LOL!!!) are getting hitched this year so we wanted to send them off in the best way possible—WITH LOTS OF GOOD FOOD!!! No program, no games, just a whole evening of eating-eating-laughing-some awkward dancing-and more eating 🙂 Our kind of TUESDAY Night fuuuuun!!! Hahaha!
I collaborated with the much buzzed about Chef Joseph Margate for this co-ed shower. I had such a memorable dining experience at Bait’s a few months back, I’ve become Chef Joseph’s instant fan. This multi-awarded and internationally trained chef is the main man behind the newly opened French-American Bistro ROUX in Greenbelt. A bit of trivia, he was actually chosen as the People’s Best New Chef in Food&Wine Magazine back in 2012! How cool is that?? I’m so glad he decided to come back to the Philippines and share his kitchen genius with us Pinoy foodies.
For this intimate gathering, Chef Joseph prepared a 4 course menu for us and it was strong from start to finish! For starters, we had Cured Salmon and Potato Salad and Fresh Herbs. According to the servers, this is one of their best-sellers and I can see why! I’m actually not a big fan of salmon so I was pleasantly surprised by it! The salmon was cured to perfection (not at all “fishy” or overly salty) and the potato salad was a light compliment to it. A really good starter! Next on the list was a happy carbo loading dish—Spaghetti with Truffle Cream and Truffled Breadcrumbs. You had me at TRUFFLE. Sarap!!! And of course, the highlight was the Hanger Steak with Bourguignon Sauce (Just did a quick spell check for that one! Ang hirap naman! Hahaha!) and Potato Puree (which was heavenly!). And to end on a sweet note, we had the signature Roux Cheesecake with the most delicious Oreo Crust!!!! That crust was to die for!! 🙂 🙂 Thank you again Chef Joseph, Blooey, and to your amazing servers (the staff did such a stellar job!) for making our BSB Wedding Shower so enjoyable! We’ll definitely head back to ROUX for more comfort food!:)
To our dear friends, Chiqui & Pat and Alex &Chesca we are so excited for you guys!!! Marriage is one helluva ride–it’s crazy fun! I just know that the Lord has beautiful plans for you and your future families! We will always have your backs no matter what 🙂 🙂
