Malou Fores´

Let’s Eat - - LETS EAT - WORDS BY SPANKY HIZON EN­RIQUEZ POR­TRAIT BY GABBY CANTERO

The ador­ing public con­sid­ers her as one of their fa­vorite chefs, and in the F&B in­dus­try, she’s highly re­spected as one of the most as­tute restau­ra­teurs in the busi­ness. From afar and early on, that was my im­pres­sion too. But when I got to know Malou Forés a few years ago, one of the first things she told me is that she’s nei­ther. She’s re­ally just a mom who loves to eat, and sec­ond, loves to cook for her child. She’s not a chef; one day just over a decade ago, she de­cided to share what she pre­pared at home on a daily ba­sis, with the rest of us. How lucky are we? Malou has an im­pec­ca­ble palate, in­trin­sic cre­ativ­ity, and an in­nate, in­valu­able skill: she in­stinc­tively knows what we all love to eat, and she lov­ingly serves it to us. That’s why keep com­ing back to Mamou. It’s like com­ing home ev­ery time.
