~Federico Fellini (1920–1993), Italian filmmaker
Being the ravioli fan girl that I am, I just had to try Earth Kitchen's Mushroom Ravioli, and I thought it was delicious! In keeping with their precept of using local ingredients, the pasta pockets were filled with kesong puti (literally, white cheese)—a soft, mild cheese usually made of the milk of the carabao, a water buffalo. Aside from mushrooms, the sauce also had some pili nuts, which, apparently, only the Philippines produces and processes commercially. Although similar in shape to almonds, pili nuts are more tender. Creamy but light, flavorful though mild, Earth Kitchen's Mushroom Ravioli gets an A+ in my book. Though it's probably the least pretty of all the dishes I took photos of.
