The Champagne Room of Manila Hotel. Stunning glass trees and old school luxe, complete with a string orchestra and sherbet in between courses. They just don't dine like this no more.

So for one weekend a month till July, join me as we relaunch the institution known as the Champagne Room. We'll dine on heirloom recipes and favorite dishes of famous guests served at The Manila Hotel Champagne Room through it's history. Prepared by their new chef, Christine Zarandin, it promises to be an interesting journey through taste and time.
