On October 20, Saturday, 9am-1pm, drop by The Maya Kitchen and learn how to prepare delightfully pleasing miniature dishes as Mandarin Oriental Manila Executive Chef Rene Ottlik showcases tapas and more.
A mainstay of Spain’s cuisine, tapas are finger foods that can be as simple as small morsels of meat, fish, vegetable or fruit or as elaborate as a hot dish simmered in sauce. Tapas are normally served in small portions and are available the whole day in the bars and cafes of Spain.
Chef Ottlik will show his take on tapas with his very own creations like Frittata of Sweet Pork, Orange Olive Tapenade and White Balsamic Dressing; Gazpacho; Crispy Chicken Croquettes with Garlic Aioli; Smoked Salmon Tartar, Cucumber Sour Cream and Black Pepper Crisp. He will also demonstrate how to make Churros and Almond Sponge Cake.
Chef Ottlik has been with Mandarin Oriental Manila since 2006 first serving as Executive Sous Chef. He also had stints in the Hyatt Hotels and Resorts in Moscow, Dubai, Berlin, Cologne as well as with the Hilton Hotels and Resorts in London and Switzerland.
The hubby and I recently discovered the joy of eating the real deal when it comes to tapas when we vacationed at Plantation Bay. Specifically, at the Palermo Tapas and Pasta restaurant. I am hoping to attend this cooking demonstration. I will have to get hold of a report designer here for that to happen. Backlogs are eating me up as of writing.
