THIS IS WHAT OUR GUESTS THOUGHT OF OUR ZUCCHINI FRITTERS
Low carb doesn’t make your meal any less filling
We made zucchini fritters at a cooking class last Jan. 26. The big surprise: The low carb dish can replace rice or bread in a meal.
The cooking class served as an introduction to Nolisoli.ph, the digital home of Northern Living and Southern Living magazines. Our group publisher Bea Ledesma, whose blog will also be a part of the site, led the class at Bulthaup, Taguig. The Nolisoli team, Denise Alcantara, Pauline Miranda, Oliver Emocling, Danica Condez, Edric dela Rosa and Kristelle Batchelor, assisted during the class.
“I liked it. It was so dense and filling, I didn’t feel like I was eating something vegetarian,” photographer Sara Black, who graced the cover of Southern Living in 2015, said. “I’m really inspired just to see Bea kind of teach everyone what she’s learned in her journey in the past year, and I think I’m gonna be making these stuff at home.”
Nadine Howell of Pedro Craft Brewers, who was also featured in Southern Living’s December 2016 issue, was all praises for the kimchi shirataki noodles, which was also taught and sampled in the class that afternoon. “The dishes are so good, and I can’t believe there aren’t any carbs in it,” she said.
Some of the ingredients used in the zucchini fritters and shirataki noodles were sourced from Holy Carabao, an organic farm and retailer. Hindy Weber, founder of Holy Carabao, was also present at the launch. “I’m so happy because someone like [ Bea] appreciates organic, biodynamic food. It’s not just healthy for weight loss, but it’s really a more holistic approach to health,” she said.
This event is presented by Bulthaup. Special thanks to Schott Zwiesel, Legle, Vidivi, and Robert Welch, all available at Garden Barn.
