Recipe: Chef Eugene Raymundo’s ‘sosyal’ Croissant Pudding

MANILA, Philippines — Trust Chef Eugene Raymundo to come up with his own variation of a classic dish. With his passion for Filipino food and ingredients, he always manages to put a unique twist into his cuisine, be it a savory dish or a dessert.

In a recent Glad-sponsored, out-of-town trip to Comms Farm in Silang, Cavite, to celebrate summer’s fresh produce, Chef Eugene treated his guests to a sumptuous lunch that capitalized on the fresh vegetables and fruits harvested from the farms that were visited.

The most special treat was reserved for dessert — Croissant Pudding with Chocnut Cream and Tsokolate Caviar.
