Solane aims to recognize the new generation of talented chefs

Unique Pinoy specialties highlighted in Solane Kitchen Hero Chef’s Edition

Cooking is more than just choosing the right ingredients, you need to have patience, skill, and passion for it. Some say that you need to study in a great culinary school to be the best, but that's not always the case. Experience is always the best teacher, and even before culinary schools were born, a lot Filipinos have honed their skills through trial and error and forged it with the heat from the stove.

Aside from singing, our country has been blessed with home-grown talents or skills and one of them is cooking, and wouldn't it be nice if we can recognize and prosper those skills that can make our country proud?

Staycation at Bosay Hotel and Resort in Antipolo

After a gruesome week at work, I was able to spend my off with my family and we decided to have a staycation, with some recommendations from my colleagues and friends, we chose to stay in Bosay Resort in Antipolo.

Although I have read some bad review, we decided to still pursue to see what they have to offer since the place is pretty accessible by commute or by car.

We stayed in their hotel for 2 days and 1 night and here's what I can say with the experience that we had with Bosay Hotel & Resort.

First of all, I am proud to say that I am really impressed with their customer service. It was superb, we were assisted from the time we arrived, during our check-in process and their staff is really courteous.

The staff who assisted us on our way to the hotel even spent the time to explain details about the resort and its facilities, and I can say that their employees are really knowledgeable about what their resort has to offer.

Upon arrival at the Hotel lobby, it has a relaxing am…

Rebisco Cracker’s Pasobra Pack makes snack time more meaningful

Enjoying a snack or sharing your food to your friend or love ones is very common to Filipinos. But sometimes eating what our body needs like healthy food is one of the things we often take for granted because of the lifestyle that we have.

But for many Filipino children and their families, access to nutritious meals is a constant struggle. Satisfying hunger is one thing; ensuring that the food is nourishing is another challenge altogether. This nutrition gap can lead to deficiencies that deprive a growing child’s body of proper nutrients needed for growth and brain development.

According to data from UNICEF, two of the main micronutrient deficiencies are iron and iodine. Iodine is vital for normal growth and tissue development. Lack of iodine can contribute to brain damage that is otherwise preventable. It is most devastating during fetal development and the first few years of a child’s life.

Iron helps carry oxygen around the body, and is especially vital for the brain and blood. Ir…
