Semi-Dried Cherry Tomatoes a la Marketman

02 May, 2011

From absolutely no decent tomatoes a couple of months ago to a sudden deluge of the fruit, tomatoes are back in markets with a summer vengeance. But be careful, some vendors must have bad sources or are just taking advantage of consumers as prices varied WILDLY at the markets yesterday. For example,…

The Corner Table, Cebu City

27 Mar, 2011

Definitely the best restaurant meal(s) Mrs. MM and I have had in Cebu City recently. Between the two of us, Mrs. MM and I have eaten at this small restaurant five times in the past 2 months and have tried almost 70% of all the dishes on the menu! I reviewed my…

Dinner With A Sculptor, Family & Friends…

20 Feb, 2011

We have always known him simply as “Tito Billy”. The man with the scraggly beard that felt like a “brillo pad” brushing up against your face when you kissed him hello or goodbye. :) Even when he was awarded the “National Artist for Sculpture” and his beat up pick-up truck had some…

Marketman’s Diet Meals…

The shop seeks to market eco-friendly products, fair-trade items, sourced directly from producers around the country. …

30 Sep, 2010

Okay, based on roughly 80 responses from the previous post asking what Top 10 produce items you purchase at the market/grocery, here is a list of Top 12 items. I stretched the list to 12 as the last two items were reasonably close to #10 and a natural “fall-off” in votes was evident…

Time to Take My Leave…

02 Sep, 2010

All things must come to an end. When I started this blog, I had no idea where it would lead. At worst, it would fail to attract any readers besides relatives and friends and it would die a natural death a few weeks or months after it was born. Instead, it…

Thanks, Roshan!

22 Aug, 2010

We had just arrived from the beach and had a relatively simple steak dinner at home for my birthday. The Teen and Mrs. MM were a bit crazed and certainly not in any mood to bake a cake on short notice, so I gather they resorted to one of their go-to spectacular dessert…
