I first met The Artist Chef, Joan Manalang when she together with friends were having a garage sale. She prepared her Grapes and Fusilli Medley Salad. TO.DIE.FOR. Just writing about it now makes me want to send her a message to make one for me. 😛
Joan is an advertising professional, artist, and chef. She’s the Chef Operating Officer of Geisha Cafe. Check out my interview with her in HCMC Life.
One time, Joan and I happened to be seated next to each other on the bus home. She showed some neat Chinese takeout boxes. She was talking about using them for packaging.
What for? These yummy Yema Balls!
Yema is a Filipino sweet but Joan’s take of this very sweet delight is completely unique. The Yema is creamy and not too sweet (which is the usual Filipino thing) then coated with cacao, matcha powder, black sesame seeds, almonds, and pistachio.
Joan’s Aubergine Caviar is a must try too!
