FEASTING WITH BULGARIAN FOOD

The floggers’ gathering evening of “Fun, Wild & Intimate” as the theme was for that night was unique. We had Bulgarian food. The dinner started with a choice between two soups – Mushroom Soup with Vintage Garlic Bread and Seafood Soup. Both were delicious. As for the main dish, we can opt for Bulgarian Pork Djolan (Traditional roasted pork knuckle), Baked Cod Fish Fillet in Creamy mushroom sauce, Chicken Stroganov (Boneless chicken drumstick cut into strips, cooked with mushroom, wine, cream, herbs & spices), Plovdiv Ribs (Tasty pork ribs grilled till tender) and Bulgarian Platter. These were followed with another two choices of desserts which were Chocolate Soup and Chocolate Cream Brulee.

When I thought that was all that they would have for the fun-filled gathering, the organizer announced that there were more food sponsors for the night. We were given more sweet treats courtesy of Winter Butterfly Homemade Cakes with the availability of Oreo Cheese Cake, Cream Cheese Mousse Cake and Chocolate Brownies. Moreover, we were also treated with some delicious gelatos from Gelatisimo. It was a night of eating, eating and eating nonstop.

Gosh! The large portion of the high calorie main dishes plus all the sweet dessert, have indeed affected my diet plans for the weekends. The reading of calories and glucose had gone beyond the safety level but I’m not panicking. Who would if you have the top rated weight loss pills around to justify the excess food feasting?

I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?

WHAT IS COOKING THIS HOLIDAY?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With a successful turnout for the second Penang Food Bloggers (Floggers) Meet at Edelweisse Café on 27 September 2008, the organizing committee had decided to hold another gathering some time in the month of December. That would be the time where all the jingles and jangles of the Christmas bells would be heard. I was anxious about the next gathering until I found out that it might be a potluck gathering.

The first thing that came into my mind was what should I prepare for the gathering that would impress the guests? I was digging into my recipe collections trying to figure out what would be the ideal dish but I was lost. Everything was Oriental and would have to be taken with some rice. I needed something that would be light and easy to consume without the hassle of using fork and spoon or even a knife. I will need some finger food.

After stretching my brains out, I thought why not I have some holiday appetizers since we would be having Christmas just around the corner. The appetizer should be something to set the mood of the gathering to be happy, joyous and merry. Now I’m contemplating whether to have some Sweet Potato Pecan Tarts or Chipotle Shrimp Cups. Maybe I should have some salty items instead. What do you think?
