So, tried my hand at yet another French cuisine.

This time pepper crusted pork chops with a rich, creamy brandy sauce.

But, either I am not used to cooking and/or eating French or I messed the sauce up big time! My father ended up having chops with catsup. Haha!


Got the recipe from

But, instead of just salt and pepper as rub I added calamansi, again. And I also mixed some salt, chili salt, pepper, and dried basil to the flour. And because of my additions, the pork tastes great! 🙂


As I posted earlier, I love trying out new recipes. And for this week I decided to go French. 🙂

So, here’s my Poulet au Vinaigre à l’estragon (Chicken Tarragon Vinegar):


With a few minor adjustments. I couldn’t find shallots so I used leek. I also did not have fresh tarragon so I used dried basil leaves. And I have no idea what heavy cream is so I used all-purpose cream.

But, despite the adjustments, it tasted good. Unfortunately, I don’t know how to plate so it doesn’t look good. Haha!
