FoodPrints with Chef Sandy Daza in Iloilo and Guimaras

FoodPrints with Sandy Daza in Iloilo

The Filipino food culture is so diverse, with a very colorful history indeed, that there’s more than meets the eye.

Next to Baguio, Chef Sandy Daza’s adventure in Iloilo and Guimaras unearths the islands’ best kept secrets. The Ilonggo cooking lexicon teems with age-old words. We will get to feast our eyes on a traditional tabuan fare, prepared by Chef Tibong Jardeleza, and get to know what KBL means to Ilonggos.

On the other side of centuries-old recipes that give prominence and so much character to Ilonggo food, individual creative ingenuity lends additional life to the local food scene. Take the case of batchoy, no two names are the same.

FoodPrints Iloilo and Gumaras will surely excite the foodie in you. April 19 and 26 (Sundays) at 8 PM on the Lifestyle Network.

More BTS of the FoodPrints Christmas Special

Sandy's Kitchen

Did you watch the FoodPrints Christmas Special on LN last Monday? December 8 (tomorrow) is the continuation of the holiday edition. It really felt a lot different watching the show on TV than when we were working behind the scenes. There is that sense of pride somehow ‘coz nothing’s adulterated or staged. Everything’s just so spontaneous. Chef Sandy is naturally as pleasant as he is on TV.

The FoodPrints Christmas Special Part 2 includes Sandy’s sweet seven, cooking time with sibling Nina Daza and a potluck party with foodie friends.

Posting more BTS photos. Here’s the link to my first post if you missed it.
