Multifaceted Baguio relaxes as well as stimulates. Foggy mornings and evenings, the peculiar cityscape, the winding eclectic streets, the bustling markets, the myriad of cultures — all these and more make Baguio that picturesque place in our hearts and minds.
Happy to have gone up to Baguio for the FoodPrints shoot for Season 3. The stint was extraordinary. The FoodPrints family grew into a clan — Chef Sandy Daza’s daughter Ali was with the dad, Jennie’s family was complete on the first day, I met new friends like Asunta Rufino, who happens to blog also, and her super smart 5-year old granddaughter, named Una, who takes very good pictures even with my distressed camera. Asunta is the mom of director Cris and cinematographer Iggy Bilbao, so photography must run in their family. As we all know, there are luminaries who are intertwined with the Baguio food scene. So we met many of them, courtesy of Musicgarten artist/art teacher RL. I got starstruck with national artist BenCab. And Kidlat Tahimik, the Father of Filipino Independent Cinema, can be animated in person.
Stay tuned, will post more stories about the FoodPrints Baguio episodes.
I had to try the duck flakes of the BenCab Museum’s Cafe Sabel. It has the makings of a comfort food.The beautiful photo is from Asunta.There’s cute Una.Bumping into JC de Vera (above) and the Doods (below).My new blogger friend Asunta.The only craft beer place north of Manila.
