Mega Chef Demo

In celebration and anticipation of Madrid Fusion Manila, SM Megamall has conducted and curated a food crawl within the mall to highlight and discover gourmet techniques and special fusion flavors made specifically for the occasion.

First stop was The French Baker’s Salon de The wherein Chef Baker and Owner Mr. Johnlu Koa demonstrated the proper way to cook a Croque Monsieur and a Croque Madame. Mr. Koa explained that even though the two has similarities, both using ham and Gruyere cheese as filling, a Croque Madame is topped with a sunny-side-egg on top, pertaining to a woman’s hat.
