Ode to the man of the house

Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila honors the man of the house in a culinary special brought to you by featured artisan showcasing their father’s favorite dishes.

For the weekend brunch from June 15 to 17, Japanese Master Chef Masaaki Ishigawa will be showcasing his dad’s beer-flavored chicken karaage, marinated in salt, pepper, rice wine and soy sauce best paired with a tall glass of ice-cold beer.

Spiral’s Indian Master Chef Halim Ali Khan will showcase his Sikandari Raan or roast lamb with flavorful spices and Biryani rice. Chef Halim’s father, who is also a culinary artisan, taught him how to prepare the slow-cooked lamb leg marinated overnight in 10 to 12 Indian spices.

Chinese Chef Michael Tai will prepare his Dragon Ball Lettuce – a dish perfect for children as it features flavorful seafood balls wrapped in lettuce – while French Master Chef Julien Cossé honors his dad with the Steak á Cheval

Korean Chef Lorvic Gesite will be showcasing the colorful Bossam, a Korean pork dish and an ideal companion to Soju, while Filipino Master Chef Bryan Ortigosa will be presenting Sinuglaw – a version of ceviche which combines sinugba (grilled meat) and kinilaw (raw meat).

Celebrating dads will receive a special gift from Uniqlo while the best-dressed fathers will receive a special prize from Peter Thomas Roth, Jack Nicklaus, Champion and Savile Row on Father’s Day Brunch on June 17.
