Breaking My Diet with Around The World In Small Plates


Lifestyle Network launched a charity dinner event titled “Around the World in Small Plates” to benefit the “I Can Serve Foundation”. It was the first of its kind in the Philippines as a friend of mine, who also attended the event, experienced a similar but bigger event in Hawaii with the same concept "tasting delicacies from several different countries" (21 to be specific), but in Hawaii, they had 200 dishes!

Wow! and we thought we had more than what we can chew and swallow for the entire night. 21 dishes was already too much for us, we never got to finish all the dishes, eventhough if it was served in "small plates"

Food on Lifestyle Network is the strongest and highest rating block of the channel. It carries the best of foreign food programs and the most respected food and culinary icons across the globe. It has also successfully produced its first local food program, “Curiosity Got the Chef with Chef Sharwin Tee” (now on its second season), with more unique culinary programs lined-up in the coming months.

Here are some of the dishes presented in small servings:

Around the World in Small Plates takes guests on a tour around the world through off-the-menu specials served in small plates. With the collaboration of the country’s top chefs and Lifestyle Network’s own chefs, the channel intended to create a mouthwatering menu showcasing the different cuisines of the world while highlighting of course our very own.

Below are some other pictures I took at the event held at the Rockwell Tent on November 9, 2012 at 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

Different restaurants and hotels as well as international and homegrown chefs joined this unique event such as Chef Claude Tayag of Bale Dutung, Chefs Romy Dorotan and Amy Besa of Purple Yam, Chefs Walter Manzke and Allen Buhay of Wildflour CafĂ© and Bakery, Chef Him Uy de Baron of Nomama, Chef J Gamboa and Chef Watee of Azuthai, Chef Cyrille Soenen of Impressions, Chef Ed Quimson of M Catering and Fine Foods, Chef Christine Marie Sumera of Brasserie Cicou, Chef Stephanie Zubiri of Atelier 317, Chefs JJ Yulo and Namee Jorolan of Pinoy Eats World, Chef Marc Chalopin of Ducasse Institute Philippines and Enderun Colleges, Chef Christopher Chai of Summer Palace, Chef Carlo Miguel of Opus, Lechon Diva Dedet Santos of Pepita’s Lechon, Gustare, Fog City Creamery, Carmen’s Best Ice Cream, Philippine Wine Merchants, Global Beer exchange, TWG Tea, Little Miss OC’s Kitchen, Big Glory Bay Salmon and Seafood Company as well as Lifestyle Network’s own chefs, Chefs Gene and Gino Gonzales of “Chefscapades”, Chef Sharwin Tee of “Curiosity Got the Chef”, and Chef Sabrina Artadi of “Sabrina’s Kitchen”.
