Last night we tasted the spread of Campampangan culinary wonders by Chef Sau, which proved to be a superb dining experience. The buffet boasts of flavorful and creatively done Capampangan dishes such as Lamb Chops Ratatouille in Kaldereta Sauce; US Beef Rib-Eye and Portobello Confits in Bistek Sauce; Begukan (Binangoongan Pampanga style) with Crispy Pork; Crispy Pata Kare-Kare with Farm Vegetables and Bagoong; and Gule Marangle (Pinakbet with Tuyo Flakes).
He will infuse the Corniche lunch and dinner buffet with local dishes from Pampanga prepared with a modern flair. Sau is a French-trained chef, who took his professional training in Nice, Southern France, under the guidance of Michelin Chef Christian Plumail of Restaurant L'univers. He took the job as Chef de cuisine of the famous Raffles Chain's Equinox, one of the best restaurants in Singapore. He opened M Cafe in 2005, and later on Chelsea, Madison Grill, Le Bistro Vert and the upcoming Toro.
To add more excitement, guests availing of the buffet will get a chance to win a round trip airline tickets for two to Bohol with accommodations. The Culinaria Capampangan food festival is in partnership with Philippine Airlines, Crosover 105.1 and Avis Rent-A-Car.
