Cebu has been a haven for Foodies. Yes, you got that right. Cebuanos are known to be picky foodies since it is natural for us to cook gourmet food not only for our families but friends as well. We don’t suck up on mediocre cooking. I grew up in a family who loves to eat and loves to cook. We do have a series of recipes handed down from my own late aunt who used to cook for households and companies. Her brother, my late uncle, also has a penchant for good cooking and gourmet food. I was just a kid back then when I got exposed to the kitchen. Learning how to use the knife and the basics of cooking can quite be an adventure for a young kid like me. In school, I was able to catch up with the TLE (home economics) subjects on cooking since I was used to it at home.
Reading up on history, Cebuanos had been influenced by the Spaniards in terms of cooking, but let us not forget that Cebu on its own, has its authentic cuisine that is considered world-class. Though for us Cebuanos, it is centered most primarily on the fresh ingredients we find, like seafood, vegetables and some staples like meat and poultry. Our home cooked meals consisted not only with filling pieces but with so much passion and heart that we cannot help but get another round.
Recently, I was invited to join a private dining experience from the man behind one of the most celebrated Filipino restaurants and brought world class Filipino chefs like Chef Sau del Rosario, the late legendary Cely Kalaw, Abodo Queen Nancy Reyes and Editha Singian to Cebu. He is back to bring his dishes to your home and celebrations this Christmas.
