COOK­BOOK KITCHEN

CON­TI­NEN­TAL

Eats - - MANDALUYONG -

Cook­book Kitchen lo­cated in the mid­dle of Man­daluy­ong’s quiet streets is an­other pop­u­lar house-turned-resto. Chef Gen Ca­p­ati serves up hearty home-cooked meals. It could be said that Chef Gen has culi­nary prow­ess in his blood, be­ing the off­spring of the late Mrs. Emilia Ca­p­ati, who used to own the Mag­no­lia Ren­desvouz in the ‘40s. The legacy lives on with him, so to speak. Get­ting there is com­pli­cated via Shaw Boule­vard, so it is un­likely that most guests will drop in as walk-in clien­tele. But take a bite of what Gen whips up from his coun­try-style kitchen, and the dis­cov­ery will be worth the trip. Cook­book Kitchen is a place where you can en­joy good food and com­pany in an un­pre­ten­tious set­ting. Gen’s wife, Liza mans the cash reg­is­ter and can chat up a storm. Red wine bot­tles adorn each ta­ble, and even the edges of each pa­per place­mat are metic­u­lously de­signed. Cook­book Kitchen’s am­bi­ence is de­cid­edly homey, with soft light­ing, red ging­ham table­cloths, ecru walls, and con­crete "oors with painted leaves. There’s also a large mu­ral of a French night scene that’s a cute at­tempt at an al fresco ex­pe­ri­ence. The place seats up to 40 peo­ple and can be re­served for pri­vate func­tions. Ser­vice is gen­er­ally good; the servers rea­son­ably oblig­ing with their menu rec­om­men­da­tions. The wait­ers know enough about the food they of­fer, ser­vice is quick, and the spe­cial­ties of the house are de­lec­ta­ble and sat­is­fy­ing.
