Sandy Daza in Ilocos Norte

Ilocos Norte welcomes celebrity chef/restaurateur/gourmand Sandy Daza, host of FoodPrints, a crisp lifestyle show that opens on the Lifestyle Network, the 7th of September. So mark that in your calendars, folks, 8:30 PM!

Being the proud Ilocano that I am, I’m excited that the show arrived in the northernmost province first. Beyond that, their eagerness to unearth the hidden gems of Ilocano cooking, braving the sultry midmorning sun, the erratic rains and the long road from the south to north and vice versa.

Chef Sandy, although he was president of a tomato paste plant in Sarrat for 3 years, it’s just in this trip that he discovered the “ang-sarap-ness” of KBL (kamatis, bugguong and lasona) with chicharon aka bagnet. Facts such as that. Apparently a fully-loaded adventure for him! Hahah, and the wonders of dragon fruit!

More BTS next!
