This had been one of the core responsibility of Slow Food Movement-create awareness about biodiversity and passion for real food.

Pay Less Eat More, Even Luxuriously at Raintree Restaurants


Many would argue that food shouldn't be a luxury especially when you're a Foodie.  That "effin" F-word really gets you ha!  Being a foodie, food categorizing should not bother you at all, whether it's gourmet, a street food, fancy or just plain, traditional, food is food, and you can always get on the bandwagon of trying out trending food.  And you just don't care of being judged.

French Cooking in the Filipino Home with Chef Xavier Btesh


Come to think of it, even though I have a friend who is a French chef, Chef Didier, I never actually got to ask him if he could help me with some French recipes I've been meaning to cook.  Guess, I never really mastered that type of cuisine yet although I love eating it.
