Celebrate in CPK

Celebrate in CPK

Sunday, October 19, 2008

Yesterday, we ate a late lunch in CPK together with my parents, to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We had just bought our own Sony Cybershot digicam the other day, and so I put it to the test by prohibiting anyone to grab the first bite of each dish before I can get to point and shoot. I am not digicam savvy and so I've yet to perfect each shot. My hubby keeps repeating that I go read the manual so I can maximize the potential use of the camera, and I keep telling him to read it himself and just show me what to do (please dear, spare me the boring details about the complicated settings, I'm perfectly fine with just clicking away).

And so I present my tweak-free, point and shoot, focus and click setting. Our first dish was the Portobello Mushroom Ravioli. It's Rosemary ravioli filled with Portobello mushrooms, herbs and cheese, topped with imported Italian tomatoes, fresh basil and garlic or garlic-Parmesan cream sauce. I had to restrain myself from eating the whole thing, reminding myself we all agreed to share every order.
Next up, we had the Fettuccine with Garlic Cream Sauce. It's Fettuccine in a garlic-Parmesan cream sauce with Italian parsley. We had them put extra chicken toppings. Too bad we only ordered the half plate, for the moment the waiter had set it on the table, I realized it would not fill me, much less all of us.
The last one to come was the White Pizza. It's a combination of Mozzarella, Fontina, Ricotta, Parmesan and Pecorino Romano cheeses with fresh sautéed spinach and garlic. We had them put the applewood smoked bacon to add a different flavor to the cheese overload. Everything was delicious, and when we asked for the bill, the waiter handed us a Chocolate Souffle Cake, a Belgian chocolate soufflé cake, served warm with CPK's triple-thick hot fudge on vanilla bean sauce, a complimentary gift for using a BDO credit card. In my delight at the surprise, I had forgotten to take a picture of it and broke my own rule of no eating before shooting...whoops!
