We started out with the Mamou Charcuterie. Hard to pronounce but very easy to eat. It's a set of cold cuts (which is what the word charcuterie means) served on a thick chunk of wood.
|A platter of prosciutto, pepper salami, sliced chorizo iberico, soft cow's milk, cranberry stilton cheese, green olives with baby gherkins, guindillas, raspberry jam & honey.|
This was a great partner to the Palm Spring rolls (Lumpiang Ubod).
The other great partnering for the night was the Angus Ribeye steak and the Healdsburg's Harvest with the cranberry vinaigrette dressing.
Someone ordered Lorenzo's Truffle Cream using whole wheat spaghettini, truffle- flavored cream and topped with the Grana Padano Cheese, a popular grated cheese made mostly near Milan.
Now that I am thinking about it... Mamou sounds French, looks French but what we ordered wasn't very French at all. Mostly Pinoy food with Anglo-fied names. Or occidental cuisine with Pinoy versions. Interesting food for thought.
