Shopwise Alabang treated mom bloggers for a day of an afternoon of food and wine last May 12. The event was filled with lively and engaging activities which included cooking lessons, Wine 101 talk, and a Wine talk. Present to share their expertise were Chef Jee of Alchemy Bar and Bistro, president of Philippines Wine Flaring Joseph Apostol and a wine expert from Italy, Mattia Mauri.
Represented throughout the show were a certain number of Australian wines being sold at Shopwise among which are the top selling Beach Hut, Chain of Fire and Lakefield brands.
During the cooking demo, Chef Jee shared how a prepare a quick and easy meal using fish and beef. To make meal more delightful, he used one of the Australian red wines for the Creamy Beef Paprikash and white wine for the Pan-Fried Fish Fillet.
Joseph presented three refreshing mixes to make Mother’s Day more enjoyable than just sipping your favorite wine as is. Try Blossoming Mom for a feel of Japan with it’s sakura color. If you are by the beach, the Citrus Sunshine would match the ambiance. Or simply celebrate the moment with a refreshing Mamita el Mojito.
If you are in search of a good wine, Mattia encourages that we try several variants from light flavoured ones to the full bodied and making the sweet tasting ones last to avoid ruining our taste buds. Wines are also best paired to the kind of meal that we are preparing, always remembering that Red wines are for red meats and White wines are for white meats. For a friendly get together drink, the Moscato variant is currently the popular choice that even kids can try (those that are below 5% alcohol level!)
Check out the recipes that were generously demonstrated by our guest experts which is not only fit for Mother’s Day but for other special occasions.
