More “Single Use” Tableware…

02 Nov, 2010

It’s been a long while since I have featured single-use implements or ceramics for the dinner table. On a recent visit to sister’s apartment, I spied two unusual plates which she must have acquired on a trip to Paris earlier in the Fall. Up top, a plate for baked scallops or …

MM’s Lunch Today

04 Aug, 2010

I was home alone for lunch today, and after all the posts about our recent trip to Morocco, I wanted to eat something Middle Eastern/Mediterraneany in flavor… so this is the lunch tray I prepared and ate less than 30 minutes ago. :) A turkish eggplant and lentil stew with chilies, tomatoes and…

Venini, Murano

03 Jun, 2010

The slow but steady swell of a proverbial tidal wave of holiday activity has started in earnest at the Marketman & Family household. We have traditionally made a big deal out of Halloween, what with a kid in the house for these past 13+ years… Her first costume was the cutest ever…

The Press Comes To Lunch (Part I)…

16 Oct, 2009

I must say a huge thank you to readers and friends of marketmanila.com, for doing such an incredible job of letting their friends and even the press know about Zubuchon, the retail lechon experiment of the crew in Cebu. Apparently, one of marketmanila’s regular readers has sent several kilos of the lechon to…
