Swissness

My good friend Heny invited me to lunch at the Peninsula Manila yesterday, it was a good time to do some catching up over great tasting food since we haven't seen each other for quite some time.

When we arrived, we were delighted that Escolta is featuring Swiss cuisine. We found out that The Peninsula Manila together with the Embassy of Switzerland is featuring "Swissness: More Fun in the Philippines,” a Swiss food festival where The Peninsula Manila’s very own Swiss Chef Samuel Linder of Old Manila takes over all the hotel’s kitchens and showcases the very best in Swiss food and wine until August 11, 2012.

This food festival is doubly meaningful because this year marks the 150th anniversary of friendship between the Philippines and Switzerland. Today, the Swiss community in the Philippines is the second largest in Asia, and Switzerland is one of the Philippines’ top 10 investors.

Let me take you on a tour with these photos:

Our view



and my verdict on the Swiss Cuisine




We truly enjoyed the variety of Swiss flavors from the salads to the desserts, it was a major hit for both of us!
And, guess what? My friend Heny and her family will return tomorrow. She's hooked! Haha!

for lunch
