Now on its third month of operations, Grace Park gives us more reasons to go back, with new “farmhouse” offerings at One Rockwell, including favorites from Pepato, such as roasted bone marrow
Tomahawk—good for 5 persons and served with sea salt from Cervia, Italy; lemon; and béarnaise with vegetable sides of the day
Fresh pappardelle with organic duck ragu
Spaghettini with uni and prawn
Orecchiette with Ilonggo chistora
Cotechino with lentils
Chicken liver pate with sage butter on crostini
and Macedonia di fruta with mascarpone gelato
Grace Park was created by Margarita Fores, who was recently recognized as Ambassador of Italian cuisine in the Philippines by the Italian culinary school, Casa Artusi, which awarded her Premio Marietta ad Honorem.
Margarita’s award was received in Italy by Patricia Locsin with HE Luca Fornari and Senora Silvana Fornari
Margarita’s team was in Italy last June 2013 to represent the Philippines in the annual Italian food festival, Festa Artusiana under the banner “La Cucina Filippina” where they served pollo e maiale con salsa di soia (chicken and pork adobo), pasta di riso, verdure fresche e code di gamberi freschi (pancit guisado), pollo grigliato (chicken inasal), maiale grigliato (inihaw na liempo), and variazione di budino alla crema (leche flan).
Their participation, aimed to promote Philippine cuisine and tourism, was made possible by the Department of Tourism.
