As we all prepare to commemorate our country’s Independence Day, what better way to celebrate it than feasting on our own culinary delights.
Diamond Hotel Philippines’ Corniche restaurant buffet presents Feasts from the Filipino Kitchen from June 3-14, 2015.
Feasts from the Filipino Kitchen at Corniche will feature the Filipino pride and famous Philippine Lechon prepared by no less than Dedet dela Fuente Santos of Pepita’s Kitchen.
Her fantastic dishes have truly taken Manila and abroad by storm… from her very own private dining sessions held at her home, all the way to Singapore and New York; from 2 lechon stuffings when she was just starting out, to an astounding 19 stuffings. And now, she invades Corniche by way of Feasts from the Filipino Kitchen!

Care for some Bone Marrow with Ox Tail Marmalade? Another sinful yet crazily delicious dish at Feasts from the Filipino Kitchen at Corniche.
I want mine hot and a little charred so I requested that my Bone Marrow be grilled again. By the way, I had 3 of these!
To cap off our very sinful, unforgettable and tummy-filling dinner, Dedet dela Fuente Santos’ Super Suman and Mango Trifle were an absolute hit too!
The Super Suman which was included in the Best Desserts of 2013 by the Philippine Inquirer was every bit colorful and sweet.
Sticky Rice, Yema, Chocnut, Glazed Pili Nuts, Macapuno Balls, Langka, Pastillas, Mango, Peanut Kisses all in one delicious extravaganza! No doubt, one helluva dessert!
But this Mango Trifle was a real head turner. Nobody dared to touch it at first because it seemed too pretty to
ruin eat… but it eventually made its way into everyone’s tummy. How could it not?
