It’s the first day of December tomorrow, a Monday, it’s also the airing of the FoodPrints Christmas Special! Inviting you to watch at 9PM on the Lifestyle Network.
Because Chef Sandy Daza’s holiday table has an excess of the best finds, there’s a Part 2 on December 8 at 9PM.
Among Sandy’s discoveries that are worth highlighting in the Christmas Special is The Fruit Garden, a locally made line of traditional French-style jams cooked in small batches. FoodPrints wiill show you how Frenchman Pierre prepares the jams in true Provencal tradition. These luxury jams are served at 5-star hotel restaurants and are available at leading supermarkets like Rustan’s and Landmark. You will also find them at select bazaars and weekend markets. Chanced upon them at the Lucky Chinatown Mall Weekend Gourmet Market. It got me excited ‘coz I heard a couple of moms checking out the gift boxes talk about Chef Sandy and his feature.
Collection samplers are beautifully packaged. Sizes vary according to your budget. The Fruit Garden Luxury Jams are also available in festival gift boxes covered in fabric inspired by 17th century Indienne patterns. Interestingly, the luxury collection theme changes with each year.
I have a personal favorite — sourish calamansi brandy with bitter undertones that is pleasant to the palate. Because jams are made of 100% fruit, pectin and sugar, this particular one is not super sweet.
I don’t want to preempt your viewing pleasure, so please don’t forget that tomorrow’s a date. Friends abroad, FoodPrints is also aired on The Filipino Channel.
Happy Monday! A great month everyone!
