Bon Appetit!

My mother calls in the middle of the day to remind me of her Cheese Pandesal---she seldom does that. So after work, I went straight to French Baker for the Cheese Pandesal and also picked out some of my favorite freshly-baked Cheese Muffins and Cheese Rolls.

By the way, I like French Baker's new store design at the Atrium as well as on the ground floor of SM Megamall but haven't tried their restaurant yet. I checked out the menu and it looks interesting, prices are affordable. Not particularly hungry, but the Chicken Cordon Bleu caught my attention---it made me think of Julia Child (played by Meryl Streep) cooking in her 60's kitchen!

So here it is...


French Baker's Chicken Cordon Bleu is a roulade of chicken layered with ham and cheese, rolled in seasoned sourdough bread crumbs and deep-fried, served on a bed of mashed potato with pan-roasted seasonal vegetables. A choice of a second side dish: rice or roll---I had rolls. I don't know if it was because of my cold, but I tasted an overpowering bitter flavor from the creamy topping, probably oregano.

French-inspired Chicken Cordon Bleu was actually developed in the US by chefs imitating other stuffed meat dishes from Europe. Cordon Bleu means “blue ribbon” and in French culinary tradition, the Cordon Bleu is awarded to food or chefs of particularly high quality.

Bon Appetit!

How I miss the French Baker. I enjoyed their pandesal when I was still living there. I'd love to try that chicken cordon bleu though. (Drooling)

Take care, my friend.
