Love in the kitchen

FEED someone's stomach and you will find love in his heart, a saying fitting for the super duo and college sweethearts Dennis and Anouska Villanueva who relished the same passion in cooking.

The nice couple was extraordinarily placed together by luck and love who earlier explored the busy and extremely dynamic city Hong Kong 17 years ago and opened the dubbed "DeliciousHK Restaurant" featuring styled recipes.

They also had other services like a luxurious and chartered yacht party package along the popular Victoria Harbour serving prominent personalities in the orient.

Just recently, they curated an eight-course food tasting for their friends in the media starting with pan-seared tuna with mango and papaya salsa on Chinese spoons with edible flowers.

The taste was tangy, oriental, and had a seemingly dominant coriander bite.

A good-smelling hot truffle and artichoke soup followed a classic caesar salad with grilled chicken, crispy croutons, shaved parmesan, and fresh parsley to start with.

The main course came with a decadent pork chop, served with finely mashed sweet potato, healthy red cabbage, and caramelized slices of apple.

Expectantly a delish Rigatoni chicken and pungent-smelling mushroom with white wine and cream sauce came next.

Dessert came last, of course, but not delinquent, mango and nut cream, and sticky toffee date pudding with custard sauce and vanilla ice cream.

All told, the night was lavish, they had a benevolent serving, food was finely textured, consistent, creative, and a pretty mix.

What are the things to look forward to? Peking duck is on the way, and some duck fat patè, as well as oriental and continental canapès.

Moreover, the couple got married four times in over 30 years of their "love in the kitchen relationship" and finds food as a conduit of their love and happiness that extends to others.
