“Feliz: A Holiday Journey”

PEOPLE PLACES - Flor Ynclino - The Freeman

Seda Ayala Center Cebu officially ushers in the festive season by bringing culture and tradition to everyone’s tables. Last October 24 to 25, the Ayala-owned hotel served a sumptuous feast of everyone’s well-loved Filipino holiday specials with “Feliz: A Holiday Journey.” The fine dining affair brought Seda’s guests and patrons to a wonderful culinary holiday adventure!

Friends from the corporate and media sectors were in awe with the specially-curated menu showcasing decades-old family recipes with a modern twist, from Simbang Gabi specials to Noche Buena and Media Noche favorites. Some of the featured recipes were puto, mangga and sikwate, glazed ham with mesclun salad, pan-seared salmon on a bed of mashed potatoes with balsamic vinaigrette and choco lava cake with three types of chocolates: the sweet white chocolate, bittersweet dark chocolate and a unique and fiery cayenne-flavored chocolate.

Guests truly felt nostalgic of the simple joys that evoke the most treasured memories of family at Christmas time. Seda also partnered with Raquel Choa, the Philippines “Chocolate Queen,” and founder of The Chocolate Chamber, for their holiday sweet treats. To ensure that Misto´s food and wine pairings enhanced the dining experience, the general manager of Happy Living Philippines and world-renowned sommelier, Mr. Jullian Gagliardi, also shared a few tips on holiday pairings.

Seda’s Feliz recipes will be available during Misto’s Christmas and New Year buffets.
