Carnation Bloggers Night

It was a busy day, but right after my classes, I proceeded on to Eastwood City for the Carnation Bloggers Night held last night at Buenisimo in Eastwood Mall.

Cook At Home with Carnation

The program started with host Issa Litton welcoming us. After which, China Cojuangco held a cooking demo of Beef with Peppercorn Sauce; of course, with Carnation as one of the ingredients.

It was also my first time to know that China is the face of Carnation’s Facebook Page called Cook At Home.

I recently participated in their page and shared a photo of mine taken last night.

I hope you find it succulent and earn a “LIKE” from you guys. Please, please, please, NOW NA! πŸ™‚

The highlight of the night followed – a dinner buffet of six dishes created by Chef Chris of Buenisimo used with Carnation products and ingredients.

They are the following:

Main Course:

  • Canadian Glazed Ham
  • Lengua Legislativa
  • Tri Color Pasta with Salmon Cream
  • Croquettas De Pollo Con Huevos with Aioli

Desserts:

  • Chocolate Truffles
  • Panacotta

Tasting the Carnation Dishes

The Canadian Glazed Ham‘s sauce was good (perhaps because of the Carnation ingredient, lol) [top photo], but I expected more from the quality of the ham itself, I wonder if they used CDO Holiday Ham? πŸ™‚

Although Lengua Legislativa hinted much of menudo more than lengua, it was my second top choice in taste. It was tender and the mixture of the ingredients, delectable.

Tri-Color Pasta

Tri-Color Pasta

The Tri Color Pasta with Salmon Cream topped my bill for its delightfully creamy sauce and taste.Β  As the name suggest, a tri-color pasta is a combination of three color pastas – yellow, red, and green. The yellow pasta is made of durum wheat flour, water, and sometimes with eggs and salt similar to a fresh egg pasta. The red pasta is similar to common pasta but flavored with tomatoes while the green one is flavored with spinach.

However, a fellow at the dining table suggested that the cream should not have been ready-mixed with the pasta at the presentation buffet. Since the event started late, plus the cooking demo, and bloggers had to take photos, this consumed time and affected the noodle’s firmness (al dente).

Last from the main courses is Croquettas De Pollo Con Huevos with Aioli.

Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, the deep fried croquettes coated with beaten egg and bread crumbs was accompanied by a garlic-flavored mayonnaise.

Desserts were the lush and rich chocolate truffles and corn-topped panna cotta. The panna cotta was good but the corn can be better. The chocolate truffles championed the desserts category and ended the night in bliss.

Finale

Towards the end of the night, Lengua Legislativa was declared as the Blogger’s Choice. If only China‘s Beef with Peppercorn Sauce was included in the line up of dishes, I bet it would have won the Blogger’s Choice. Overall, it was an interesting Blogger’s Night with Carnation
