Lala Tuazon and Mico Lucena, two of the owners of Mateo's, first introduced the very interesting history behind the restaurant. (You may view the history here.)
Read on for more information about this exciting event. :)
Here is Chef Maea demonstrating how to decorate the gingerbread house using royal frosting, chocolate, and sprinkles.
I actually crochet, but in this case with limited time, I just taught the participants how to wrap their cords (cellphone or external hard drive) creatively and uniquely so they won't get lost or mixed up with other plain ones. Hehe. These designs are actually friendship bracelet designs that may be used to decorate your cords.
There weren't actually that many photos during the session since most of the participants were busy twisting and turning their cords to wrap them and make them look like the bracelets in the image below. :)
You may also request friendship bracelet-making workshops, if there are some interested.
Senorita Gabriel also does Basic Spanish Language Workshops at Mateo's. Please do check their website for more details on this.
Now, I leave you with the excellent food that everyone kept talking about. Indulge!
