The Holidays Start Early at The Maya Kitchen

Holidays in the Philippines come in as early as September and Maya Kitchen is ushering its welcome as The Peninsula Manila Executive Chef Patrick Boucher takes his turn as the guest chef of The Maya Kitchen on September 29, Saturday, 9am-1pm.

Chef Boucher will demonstrate Turkey with Traditional Stuffing, Giblet Gravy, Cranberry Sauce, Orange Cumin Glazed Carrots and Roasted Pumpkin. The Chef will share old fashion holiday food tips and tricks as well as give suggestions on other holiday dishes and ingredients.

This native of Canada made a name for himself worldwide with his passion for creating both classic and ethnically diverse cuisine using the finest seasonal ingredients. He has had stints with The Four Seasons Hotel properties in Miami, Dubai and Bali. At The Peninsula Manila, he oversees Old Manila, Escolta, Spices and The Lobby.

I have been to a number of Maya Kitchen demonstration workshops and I am hoping I will be able to attend this one this time around. I have not attended in a long while because of the traveling we have done this past month. Even as we are contemplating on pushing through with our winter vacation soon and picking up some Bolle Gravity ski goggles, I am hoping to sharpen my culinary stylings and skills soon and attend a workshop or two before we go and fly again. I have kind of gotten dull in the kitchen department.

Check out Maya Kitchen via or e-mail them and ask about their workshop schedules. The Maya Kitchen Culinary Center is located at 8F Liberty Building, 835 A. Arnaiz Avenue (Pasay Road), Makati City.
