QUEZON CITY, Philippines – Since the holiday is a season to gather family and friends, make sure that your choicest menu are aplenty. Plan a get-together and kick off the festivities at 49-B Heirloom Kitchen at Sct. Gandia Q.C. from December 2016 throughout January 2017 where Executive Chef Erica Aquino’s 4-course menu is heartily inspired by Doña Elena Olive Oils, the country’s No. 1 great-tasting and health giving oil.
Since a stunning holiday centerpiece is an imperative to your festivities, give Olive and Chorizo Stuffed Chicken (P550) a try. Mediterranean inspired and comes with a generous filling of olives and chorizo, it’s also marinated in Doña Elena Pure Olive Oil that’s bursting with juicy and rounded flavors that’s perfect with a creamy mashed potato.
For a dose of Latin-American inspired dish, the Cuban Beef Stew with Yellow Rice (P340) that’s sauteed in Doña Elena Pure and Extra Virgin Olive Oil won’t disappoint. A plateful of fork tender beef with a side dish of savory black beans and fried saba bananas, the long grain turmeric rice completes the festive formula of this bright and filling recipe.
The Grilled Tilapia Fillet with Red Onions and Olive Relish (P420) is tasty but light, filling and totally guilt-free! Wonderfully conspires a Mediterranean taste, this pasta dish is refreshing and punctuated with Doña Elena Extra Virgin Olive Oil no less.
Equal parts velvety and creamy, the Cheese Panna Cotta with Lemon-Infused Olive Oil and Pistachios (P225) is brimming with layers of cheesy goodness. A mix of cream cheese and crumbled kesong puti on a pool of Doña Elena Pure Olive Oil, it’s finished off with a zest of lemon to cut the richness of this extremely decadent dessert.
