JAMIE AND JIMMY Are Back To Fly The Flag For Britain's Greatest Grub!

JAMIE & JIMMY’S FOOD FIGHT CLUB returns for an all-new food adventure!  Together with their special guests, Jamie Oliver and his old childhood pal, farmer and television presenter Jimmy Doherty will be exploring and celebrating more of Britain's diverse food heritage and forgotten eats, as well as whipping up more incredible local dishes from their pop-up café at Southend Pier, Essex. 

Among the celebrity guests this season are Golden Globe nominee Sienna Miller and Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt. Season two of JAMIE & JIMMY’S FOOD FIGHT CLUB premieres every Thursday at 8:00 p.m., starting March 5. Encores every Sunday at 7:00 p.m. and Monday at 8:00 a.m. 

In this six-part series, Jamie and Jimmy will be inviting some of their celebrity friends who will cook and serve the dish of the day to the café’s patrons. Sienna learns the all-essential steps and tips to making her favourite rich duck ragu with pici pasta. Jamie teaches Usain to replicate the dish the sprinter believes is the secret to his Olympic success – his Aunt Lily’s Jamaican Jerk pork with yam and dumplings. Multi-award winning comedienne Jennifer Saunders cooks savoury Italian porchetta with Jamie.  Actress and judge of Britain’s Got Talent Amanda Holden makes an authentic Greek moussaka inspired by her grandmother’s travels. 

As usual, Jamie and Jimmy will hit the road and continue their mission to revive some of the country’s lost or nearly extinct ingredients and foods such as 160-year-old tarts, long lost spuds from historic Colchester and many others. Jamie also tops off each week with an easy-to-make ‘blow-out’ recipe that will knock the socks off of everyone, while Jimmy tears it up with tasty food-science experiments and crafty culinary ideas such as re-inventing doner kebabs in old oil drums and roasting succulent tandoor chicken in a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) 
dustbin oven.

Hear humorous stories and share laughs aplenty as these lifelong buddies reminisce about their youth and celebrate the best of British cooking in the latest season of JAMIE & JIMMY’S FOOD FIGHT CLUB!

Paint Some Luck In Your Life With Feng Shui Paint

Chinese New Year is coming and people look forward to a fresh new beginning. Everyone’s optimistic about the year ahead and can’t wait to start the year with positive changes like New Year’s resolutions, bucketlists, and even home renovations. In the Philippines, home design and renovations are now done by an increasing number of Filipinos that adapt a Chinese tradition of attracting positivity through the arrangement of one’s home – Feng Shui.

As Angi Ma Wong defines it in ‘Feng Shui Dos & TABOOs,’ literally translated as “wind-water,” Feng Shui is the art of placement and is one of the five components of a person’s destiny. Part of this practice is the
proper choice of colors to surround you, to effectively enhance the flow of positive energy in both home and business environment.


This concept inspired the birth of FENG SHUI PAINT. Designed as an indoor wall paint, Feng Shui Paint is made up of colors carefully chosen to suit a person’s lucky color based on their Chinese zodiac sign. 

Prescribed by the well-known Feng Shui expert Mr. Johnson Chua, Feng Shui Paint is made to help attract three general life aspects: prosperity, health, and harmony.

Now, there’s a new way to help attract good fortune. Paint some luck into your life with Feng Shui Paint. 

For color chart, pre-orders, and other inquiries, you may call 0919-466-3338 or send an email at fengshuipaint@gmail.com. For more updates, you may visit facebook at www.facebook.com/FengShuiPaint

Wild Ginger The Southeast Asian Table

Foodie meet-ups was fun! I enjoy it with my fellow foodies and blogger friends. This time we are invading the Wild Ginger. It was a great opportunity to try out their food because it only has one branch, which is located in Lower Ground Floor of Rockwell, Power Plant Mall in Makati. 

I came so early in the venue because it's very near in the Office where I work. While waiting for other foodies, I enjoy taking pictures of their restaurant. Taking the opportunity while other has not yet arrived. The ambiance is so homey, and it was decorated with simplicity and arts hanging from the wall with a Vietnamese and British inspired interior design. 




It's actually a South East Asian fusion restaurant where they served popular dishes from different countries in it. Join me as, I traveled the different South East Asian cuisine in Wild Ginger foods. 





We tried the Roti Prata with Curry Dipping Sauce is an Indian flaky bread and its one of their specialty. Green Mango Salad is a tangy salad and goes well with  Pad Thai. We also have Spinach and Dhal Chapati that looks like a Vegetarian Quesadillas for me and the Crispy Veggie Spring Rolls Parcels, which is a Singapore style Lumpia with vegetable filling. 




For the main menu, we have Thai Green Chicken Cury, Beef Rendang is an Indonesian Beef Stew and steamed rice to complete our meal. Actually, I saw Adobo in their menu that makes me curious if their Adobo is similar with the Pinoy Adobo but their Adobo is a little sour and very peppery, which makes it different from our traditional Adobo.


 

We also have Pad Thai, a popular flat rice noodle dish. For desserts, we have Sticky Toffee Pudding, which is a British/Australian cake that is very addictive and not yet discovered here in our country  and the Gula Melaka which is the Southeast Asian Sago (tapioca) balls with palm sugar and crush ice. Oh, I forgot the Lemongrass Tea.






Among all, they served to us. My favorites are Roti Prata with Curry Dipping Sauce, Pad Thai and the Beef Rendang. Of course, the Sticky Toffee Pudding is perfect after the sumptuous meal. I will go back here and will bring my family so that they will try the Pad Thai and the Beef Rendang of Wild Ginger.  

Thanks to Ms. Polly (one of the owner) and to my Zomato friends for another food adventure that I have last Thursday and see you for the next foodie meet up!

Wild Ginger is located in the Lower Ground Floor, Power Plant Mall, Rockwell, Makati City. Opens from Monday to Sunday from 11am-10pm. It's a Casual Dining, they have no deliveries but served alcohol and an air-conditioned restaurant. You can spend PHP1200 for two people approximately.
