November cooking classes – yes! Still in Alabang on Wednesdays. Get the schedule here. We’ve got cookies, salads, chocolate pastries, and Mediterranean cuisine in store. Makati classes are still in the works – I’m just fine-tuning some details.

Muni Market on November 8 – I’ll be at Muni Market in Capitol Commons, Pasig from 9am to 7pm peddling awesome vegan goods such as dairy-free ice cream, crack cacao nib cookies, gluten-free and vegan salted belgian chocolate cupcakes, and gluten-free bread. I wrote a bit about the market in a post here. If you’re curious about what else to expect, read up here.

Watch this video starring some of the Muni Market Day merchants talking about conscious consumption and mindful living (I’m in the 45th second).

Yummy magazine column – I’m still alive and kicking out a column on healthy eats in Yummy magazine! Out every month. I was all over broccoli mac and cheese in October (sauce made from kalabasa / squash, yumm). November is a frozen chocolate pie, so pick up an issue, stat!

The Workplace interview – I guested at The Workplace, a local TV show that airs every Monday at noon at channel 8 on Destiny Cable, channel 213 on Sky Cable, and channel 1 on Southeast Asia. If you missed it, catch it on youtube below.

That’s all, folks! See you in the kitchen!

Hello hello! I was gone for a month but I’m back and excited to tell you guys that I’m coming up north on Saturday and selling a bunch of goooood stuff! Check out my booth at MUNI Market this Saturday the 25th (and on November 8, too), from 9am to 5pm, in Capitol Commons.

The market will be composed of over 40 merchants to cater to conscious consumers who want to live a little more meaningfully everyday, even through their daily decisions. The main objective of the market is to educate consumers and create a platform for healthy discourse between people of various fields so we can all come together to do what we do better. If you recall, two months ago, I wrote a blogpost on “Being the vegan elephant in the room” for the MUNI website.

Stuff on the KR menu:

The cookies, cupcakes, and ice cream are sweetened with coconut sugar, which is low-glycemic and gentle on your blood sugar. The ice cream is made with a blend of coconut milk and soy milk. The cookies are gluten-free, too! Everything is vegan, dairy-free, egg-free, and cholesterol free, because I love you, animals, and the planet.

Come on an empty stomach! There will be savoury vegan eats by Edgy Veggy and Pipino!

A raffle will be held during the day and you might get to win a free pass to our cooking classes!

MUNI Market will also hold talks, forums and workshops on healthy food, urban farming, upcycling, cause-driven entrepreneurship and other ways to “greenify” your lifestyle. I’ll be a panelist at the Food for Health & Wellness Forum from 10:30-11:30am.

Forum fee is P100 per forum and P250 for an access pass to all 3 forums for the day. Registration begins 30 minutes before each respective forum. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis, and slots are limited. To register, leave a reply here.

Hope to see you there! Support independent vegan food companies. Come by my booth and let’s banter about vegetables, camping, traveling, and your favourite ways of eating avocados. Say the secret code phrase “Eating vegetables makes me sexy and vegans make better lovers”  and get 10% off your purchase!

New bread on the horizon

If you’re gluten-free or just want something different for your daily bread, perhaps you remember I bake artisan gluten free bread. Currently round loaves and  / or baguettes are available at Edgy Veggy (Kapitolyo, Pasig), Corner Tree Cafe (Jupiter St, Makati), Ritual (Malugay St, Makati), The Superfood Grocer Philippines (New Manila), and through me (Alabang) directly.

Check out this newcomer: focaccia. Current flavor available is rosemary and sea salt. Comes in an 8-inch round and pairs well with salad, soup, or protein of choice. P150 per piece.

Made with brown rice flour, sorghum flour, cassava starch, sago starch, flax seeds, and extra virgin olive oil. Dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free, vegan.

If any of the establishments mentioned above is close to you, do request that they carry my focaccia!

Oh yes, I’ve been tinkering around in the kitchen…

Gluten-free bread update + cookies!

photo 2

Before I dabbled in the gluten-free bread baking arts, I had no idea that Pinoys would crave this stuff. More and more people are experiencing the benefits of the gluten-free lifestyle or are trying to heal whatever health problems they have holistically through diet. I’m thrilled to help out in any way I can – if my obsession with alternative (and vegan) cooking and baking can support people’s health goals, well and good.

Enter: gluten-free bread. Two establishments are currently carrying my bread: Edgy Veggy Cafe in Kapitolyo, Pasig and Corner Tree Cafe on Jupiter St, Makati. Edgy Veggy delivers to select cities in Metro Manila – see my previous blog post on the bread for more details. You can also pick up from Corner Tree Cafe in Makati.

And, if you frequent the southern Metro Manila areas, I carry my own bread too! Send me a message 0917-894-5086. This is perfect if you desire freshly baked bread straight from the source (Alabang). P130 per loaf.

How to want to eat your greens: Tips for maximum greens preparation, storage, and appreciation. Vegan MoFo #5

If you’re a flexitarian or of a more herbivorous disposition, you may find yourself purchasing and eating a lot more vegetables than the average person. And maybe you feel like your vegetables keep dying on you before you can enjoy them – particularly green leafy vegetables which are more delicate than hardy, starchier veggies like eggplant and calabasa.

Here are a few tricks I learned in cooking school and in working in vegetarian professional kitchens:

Schmoozing at the Antipolo Earth Fest + cooking demo recipes

A taste of the Mediterranean cooking class is upon us this Saturday! Tentative menu is up. Cook up a storm and have a feast that is satisfying stomach-wise and health-wise. There’s a reason why Mediterranean cuisine is well-loved. RSVP with us!

Can’t make it to this Saturday’s class? We have Brunch scheduled on the 14th and Dessert on the 21st. More classes to come, stay tuned.

Last Sunday, Kitchen Revolution made the loooong trek from the southern belly of Metro Manila (Alabang) to the northeastern hills of Antipolo.  All for the love of mother nature personified in the Antipolo Earth Fest. Mission? Vegan cooking demonstration and vegan food retail.

We set up our tiny shop in the Earth Fest. We were the only vegetarian table!

I learned the art of working with small spaces after living in a shoebox dorm room in NY. Check out the bamboo frame for the signage - Earth power!

On Sunday’s menu:

Asian noodle salad with mind-blowing peanut sauce and tofu. White bean hummus focaccia with basil-walnut pesto. All good, all the time. Salad served in biodegradable food boxes, sandwich served in banana leaves.

Before we opened for lunch though, I gave a stirring vegan cooking demonstration that won the hearts of the omnivores present (I think).

Explaining the awesome benefits of a whole food, plant-based diet for the body, for the planet, and for the animals.

Celebrating food (and Mother Nature) at the Antipolo Earth Fest 2011

This Saturday, we’re holding a cooking class on “Fast, fresh, and healthy” cooking. Sign up and learn that nutritious, plant-based cooking needn’t take all day nor lack in the taste department! We’ll be cooking a menu full of whole grains, vegetarian protein, yummy veggies, and more.

I’m so excited to announce that Kitchen Revolution will be participating in this weekend’s Antipolo Earth Fest at the Pinto Art Museum!

Lots of fun stuff in store in this quaint museum about 50km (ish) northeast of Alabang. Normally, I don’t like venturing too far away from home – but when Irene Tan-Gurango (one of the masterminds behind the festival) sent Kitchen Revolution an email and asked for help, I couldn’t refuse. I headed out to the Pinto Art Museum last Tuesday and was completely smitten by the place – so much so that I immediately said yes to a food demo AND a vendor table, even though KR is a tad undermanned for such a trek. You would be smitten too, if you saw the place.

Luckily, I took photos! Sidenote: oh, the wonders of a Blackberry. I just recently purchased one a few days ago because I got frustrated with my old phone. Sad but true, I’m in love with it.

Anyway – the festival is open Saturday through Sunday but Kitchen Revolution will be there on Sunday only. We’re busy with our Fast, Fresh, and Healthy cooking class this Saturday – if you won’t be at the Earthfest, come cook a vegetarian feast in Alabang!

Vegan food demo at 10am (ish), vegan food for sale right after. We’re selling simple vegan fare since we won’t have access to a kitchen and space is quite limited. We’ll probably have only two things on the menu, but we’ll make ‘em worth your while. We’ll be operating the only vegetarian food table at the Earth Fest, so do come and support!

In line with the Antipolo Earth Fest’s mission to be sustainable, we will be serving our food in biodegradable containers with biodegradable cutlery. We might have a sandwich on our menu, and we are toying with the idea of serving this in a banana leaf. Such planeteers of us!

On with the photos! Continue reading
