Hi Everyone! 
A special shout out to everyone that watched the First Episode of the Pickiest Eater Web Series!

I said I would be happy if we could get 500 views, and so far we've got over 1,400 and counting! 
We are currently planning the second episode, and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as the first! 
In case you haven't seen it yet, you can watch it here: 

Anyways, I wanted to once again apologize for the the decreased frequency of my posts. 
My family has ventured once again into the food business, and so I've been spending most of my time making sure it opens smoothly.

If you are in the area, please feel free to drop by The Grill Boy, located at 2nd Floor of The Spark Place, along P. Tuazon St. in Cubao (Across SM Cubao)

I'm there every day, so in case you see me, please feel free to say hello :) 

Anyway, back to regular programming.. For now.. 

     I've been a fan of Chef Katrina Alcantarasince my first trip to Mesclun Bistro a couple of years ago. Her food always exudes finesse, and impressive knowledge of classic techniques. It's always interesting hearing her explain how a dish came about (often using French terms that I have no clue what they mean, so I just nod along like I do, saying, "Uh huh") through her different experiences. 

     Her latest concept, CDP Global Table, is a collaboration with seasoned restaurateurs Malou Fores and Kristine Locsin, that takes your senses on to a culinary voyage through different dishes inspired from their travels together. 

    Luckily I was able to tag along for the ride!

Goldilocks Trifle Dessert

        Parents nowadays are usually all very busy. It’s funny because nowadays even if a parent doesn’t have a 9-5 job, there are still so many things that needs to be done and we have so little time to do it. So in this day and age, we try what we can to do things the fast way. For instance making a dessert recipe. This usually takes a while. But with simple ingredients you can find at the grocery store, and Goldilocks, making a fun dessert for your little one will be a piece of cake!

      This has always been the dream.

      From that fateful day on June 25, 2010, when I first opened a blogger account and wrote the words, "Hello. My Name is RichieZ. And I am the Pickiest Eater In The World." this is was always the end game. 

      But let me make something clear.. I have no intention of being a food and travel show host of just any show. It had to be "The Pickiest Eater in The World" show, where I would have creative freedom to be me, and do the goof ball antics that you're used to seeing on my blog. This was always what I had wanted to do since I first saw Adam Richman take down "The Kitchen Sink" challenge in San Francisco (The very first episode I ever watched from Man V. Food), and food and travel was my calling. 

    I couldn't do it back in 2010. I didn't have the network of friends in the restaurant industry that I do today, who now made embarking on a production like this, relatively easy. Not to mention, I was not yet established as a food blogger, so my "followers" at that time consisted of me, my wife, my beloved Godmother in Long Beach (who always believes in me, no matter what venture I do. Love you Ninang!).   

   My partner in this Web Series, Muvo Media was not ready either. Mark Mijares, the man behind the Production AND Post Production of The Pickiest Eater Show, and I were working together in a Post House, whose busy schedule didn't allow for us to do very many side projects. 

     Thankfully, five years later, we came together at the perfect stages in our life to make this show a reality. Any blogger can make a Vlog. Hell, I've made quite a few myself over the years. But I can say in full confidence, that this is closer to a TV show than a Vlog, and I'm incredibly proud of what we've achieved.

    In fact, a bunch of blogger friends and I are going to be coming together to create more Blogger Web Series content for you all, which we intend to broadcast over a website we called, "The Band of Bloggers Network".. I think Episode 2 of The Pickiest Eater show will be aired there, so watch out for it!

     Thank you once again to Mark Mijares, Angela Sison, Rina Zamora, Chaika Barbero, and a very special shout out to the generosity of Marc Nocon and Donny Elvina of Burgers and Brewskies
   Anyway, enough with the talking! Here we go! I hope you enjoy!!
