Our trip to Baguio was really Javier’s request to Lola. Every year the kids love going to Baguio with their friends and staying in Lolo Benny’s house. They ask Lolo and Lola to take them. This trip it’s Juan, Jeff and Andrew who are Javier’s guests. Just like when we were kids we loved going to Baguio with our cousins with many fond memories. Hoping this tradition will continue for many generations
Trying to count the times we have been to Mamma’s table and everytime we come we bring special friends and family. Today is most special to be able to bring our Lolo who is happy to know Chef Vicky’s parents. Tita Benita Imperial Tinio, mom of Vicky is 94 years old, the same age as Lolo
Beautiful Limoges dinnerware of Chef Vicky. She told us the story about the set which her sister sent. We should find out who the auctioneer was and we should report him On the other hand it’s a blessing because it ended up with Chef Vicky who now uses it for her meals. Maya Maya Fish fillet “En Paupiette” on sautéed Chorizo Pamplona and diced vegetables and snow peas with clam saffron and leek sauce
Chef Vicky Tinio told me about this place – a friend of hers who also opened up his house for dining, It’s called Foggy Mountain House and it was really foggy that night we went there. We were hoping to catch the sunset at 530pm but it was really very foggy. If you do decide to come over, best to come at round 5 to 530pm for sunset and to appreciate the view. It’s a very casual and cozy place in Baguio to have a Mediterranean meal.
Here he is! Babes Reyes of Foggy Mountain Cookhouse –
he has a brick oven to cook the meats,
So happy to meet this kind gentleman who is a good friend of Chef Vicky Tinio. He is a self taught chef who wanted to leave the corporate world and be his own boss. His cooking is casual Mediterranean with influences from Morocco and Greece where he traveled
Crispy Squid Fries at Foggy Mountain Cookhouse – the squid is from Canada and it’s so tender. YUM!!!! Babes told me that he doesn’t like serving French fries instead he serves mashed potato ….. thick strips of giant squid…with dill tartar sauce…served with truffle oil infused mashed potatoes…Like eating Crispy scallops!!! TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM THE TRADITIONAL CALAMARES!

She invited some health conscious ladies who all want to be healthy in the most natural way. And one of those ways is through essential oils. We don’t have to really have a health concern to use essential oils. Prevention is key.
