Focus On Kitchens


Focus Global Inc. is now open in Cebu.  They carry top-of-the-line brands like Siematic kitchen cabinets, Miele, Subzero and Wolf appliances.       

Today I was invited to their first cooking demo to show how easy it is to prepare meals when you have a beautiful, functional, working kitchen, using state of the art appliances.    

What's cooking?  Greek Food!

For starters,  we had pita bread with 3 kinds of easy to prepare dips: hummus (from chickpeas), tzatziki (a personal favorite made of cucumber, yoghurt and sour cream) and skorthalia (a Greek potato dip).  

Chef Gio, Siematic's in-house chef, flew in from Manila to demonstrate how to use some of the appliances.  He uses the built-in Miele steamer to cook vegetables as it's a healthier alternative to lock in the nutrients.

Rustic eggplant moussaka (Greece's version of an eggplant parmigiana which consists of layers of eggplant, meat sauce and bechamel sauce).

Chef Gio shows us how to prepare a traditional Greek dessert called baklava, layers of phyllo pastry and pistachio-walnut mixture.
If I had a kitchen like this, I would probably be cooking braised beef short ribs with garlic yoghurt sauce too!
I can rave about the wonderful appliances found in the showroom (or can be seen in this picture ---that Subzero refrigerator is a dream!) but I'll leave it to the able hands of the Focus Global Inc. Sales and Design team who are a group of professional licensed interior designers, to do the talking.
