It was a secret kept among foodies for a long time. The secret is no more as The Cookbook Kitchen Restaurant shares its enticing dishes at The Maya Kitchen on October 8, Saturday, 9am to 1pm.
Chef Patron Gen Capati will demonstrate some of his restaurant’s most popular dishes like CBK Stuffed Spring Chicken brimming with cheese, ham and basil; Boston Poached Fish is fish fillet poached in white wine and grapes along with crowd favorites Meaty Herbed Eggplant, Pasta al Adobo and Decadent Chocolate Rhum Cake, a creation of Chef Capati himself.
Inspired by the concept of offering delicious meals in a cozy, homey and casual setting, Cookbook Kitchen had its first start in 2005, somewhere in Mandaluyong, in a garage and part of a residential house converted into a restaurant. Today, Cookbook Kitchen serves its loyal patrons in branches in Eastwood City and San Fernando, Pampanga. Its small menu of very select dishes has grown to include Italian, American and Asian fusion offerings.
