Low carb doesn’t make your meal any less fill­ing

Northern Living - - SPECIAL FEATURE -

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 No­, 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.
