THIS year’s Father’s Day celebration on Sunday, June 21, 2020, would be different. While families used to dine out and honor the man of the house with a satisfying lunch or dinner in a hotel or restaurant, most families would be celebrating at home this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic that has put many key places in the country, including Metro Manila, in some form of Community Quarantine. In the case of Metro Manila, it is General Community Quarantine (GCQ), which how allows dining in restaurants but with quite a number of restrictions. Because of these restrictions, a big percentage of hotels and restaurants have decided to stick to pick-ups and deliveries for the meantime.
Some available options for that memorable lockdown Father’s Day celebration at home…
Chef Jessie’s makes your Father’s Day celebration more special with its uniquely delicious pick-up and delivery offerings. Available on the menu are full course lineups that will make Dad feel like Chef Jessie Sincioco herself is cooking for him right in the kitchen.
For starters, there’s Smoked Salmon Caviar Pie with Croutons which you can follow up with Caesar Salad in the Classic Way. Soup afterwards is a choice among Creamy Shrimp Bisque, Cream of Fresh Mushroom, Cream of Carrot and Pumpkin, and Seafood and Corn Chowder.
For the main entrée, Dad would love a Grilled Prime Black Angus Beef Tenderloin or Grilled Prime Black Angus Rib Eye with a choices of sauces—Béarnaise, Bordelaise, Bourguignon, Wild Mushroom, Goose Liver and Creamy Pepper. Other meat choices that he would also enjoy are U.S. Black Angus Beef Tenderloin Tips Salpicao, U.S. Beef Cheeks and Mushroom Ragout, and Iberian Chestnut Pork Barbecue.
There are also sumptuous choices for seafood lovers, including Grilled Chilean Sea Bass in Mariner Sauce, Baked Chilean Sea Bass in Miso Sauce, Grilled Salmon in Berlinoise Sauce, and Grilled Tiger Prawns in Lemon Butter Sauce.
You can also choose to order Grilled Duck à L’orange or Chicken Cordon Bleu with Homemade Potato Chips.
A good bottle of wine to go with the main course is Menhir Salento Numero Zero Megromaro (N˚O), which is Pope Francis’ favorite wine. The rosato is of a ruby hue with purple highlights and has a bouquet of strawberry, blackberry and raspberry. The taste thus is fresh, vinous and slightly astringent.
If pasta is what Dad and the whole family fancies, Chef Jessie’s offers a choice of spaghetti, linguine or penne in creations such as A La Jessie, A La Créme with Truffle, Pomodoro with Seafood, Bolognese, Carbonara, and Puttanesca. Or you can choose to treat Dad to Wild Rice Vegetable Risotto instead.
For light sandwiches to go with pasta, selections include Club Classic, Grilled Ham and Cheese, Smoked Salmon, and Trio Pandesal with Chicken Adobo, Corned Beef and Sardines.
For sweet endings to a perfectly delicious meal, opt for whole cakes such as the mango sponge cake classic My Tita’s Special Treat; the buttercream, meringue and pistachio layered Princess Carmen; Chef Jessie’s Baked Cheesecake with Cherry, Blueberry and Mango; Chocolate Gateau ala Teddy; and Sugar Free Decadence Cake. A nice cup of Chef Jessie’s Premium Roast Coffee should perfectly cap the meal.
