Weren’t invited to the state dinner for the French President recently at MalacaƱan Palace? See the menu, above. And notice the magnum of Chateau Siran 2000 they served with the main course… then click here to a post Christmas dinner post I wrote last December.


Does the magnum in the middle look familiar? Heehee. Courtesy of the wonderful folks who own Chateau Siran. Thank you E and S for gracing our holiday dinners with such a Presidential wine. :)

This is the perfect segue to the long overdue posts from our Fall trip to Paris. Let the Parisian posts start in earnest!

    What No Chateau Lafite-Rothschild, Wow that’s ok it must have been a nice dinner with the two top leaders of both country. Sorry I’m just plain envious, I don’t get to rub elbows with rich folks like you do. That’s a mistake I made for being born with poor parents. lol

    Basil pesto? Ravioli? For the French president? The least they could have done was to have used the French terms for these.
    Looking forward to your Paris posts, MM!

    Funny, I chose Paris on the poll, even before I opened this post. Would love to go there. Looking forward to your Paris posts.

    I wonder how President Hollande found the kilawin and the adobo marinated prime rib. :)

    Curious about the barako coffee and adobo marinated prime rib. Always worried about soaking a prime rib in a salty marinade lest the meat – prime cuts specially – becomes tough. Any experience with this, MM. Btw, glad you still blog fiercely :-)
