Over the past 3 months I’ve been working as a blogger/vacationing as a tourist from Ilocos with the FoodPrints food travelogue series of Chef Sandy Daza, I’ve gained an overload of beautiful prints with extraordinary friends. Life is weirdly good. My computer memory is so full I need to delete files every now and then.
Batangas is such an interesting place. I’d want to go back to the Taal Market where I discovered fabulous Filipiniana and fine jusi and piña calado. My mom would have gone nuts in Taal! I bought Alexa a pretty handpainted Maria Clara. Check out the food here.
Chanced upon himagsikan mood while katipineros and prayles were being filmed at the Taal Basilica.
I insisted on having a photo with Chef Sandy. When they filmed him with me for the initial episode (here), hahah, direk Cris had to call my attention ‘coz I was always looking at the food and not into my guest’s eyes.
The Mercados, owners of Cafe de Lipa. They belong to a family of century-old coffee farmers. I’m posting a story on Barako Joe soon.
Thank You! Cheers, FoodPrints!
