Cooking like a pro





Learning how to cook is one of the most practical skills anyone can have. Cooking may be intimidating at first, especially if you are a beginner, but leading LPG solutions provider Solane believes that you can master it with consistent practice.

Chef Sau del Rosario, ambassador of Solane’s Kitchen Hero — a nationwide cooking competition which aims to recognize a new generation of local talented chefs — shares his secrets to acing your cooking skills in no time.

Read the recipe. Before you start cooking, be sure to read through the recipe. This will help you know which ingredients need to be chopped and prepped early on. Having everything prepared before cooking will speed up your cooking time and keep you from getting frazzled or confused.

Add creativity to your dishes. Being creative not only makes your food look appetizing but also makes the dining experience more exciting. For Chef Sau, this means being able to modernize your dish so it’s more relatable and appealing especially to young diners.

Good food comes from good ingredients. “If the fish that you used isn’t fresh, you won’t be able to come up with a great tasting finished product,” says Chef Sau. He believes that if you’re aiming for quality dishes, then you should never skimp on quality ingredients.

Use Filipino ingredients. The essence of Filipino food is using local ingredients. “We are rich in local resources and you should take advantage of whatever your region has to offer,” shares Chef Sau. 

There should be a story behind your dish.  “Walang kwento, walang kwenta ang pagkain.” For Chef Sau, a dish becomes even more delicious it’s made with love, and when there’s a story or meaning behind it. Food can also be a source of comfort because it can evoke nostalgia or provide sentimental value to someone.

Learning how to cook might take a lot of trial and error. Be patient and don’t be afraid to experiment. Follow these tips and you are on the right track to becoming a skilled cook!

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…

Pasta comes in different shapes and sizes but whatever it is no one can keep us away from loving it whether it be a red or white sauce, Italian, Filipino Style, Pesto or in any way you like it pasta will be a Filipino favorite.

Speaking of pasta, aside from our regular favorites, this pasta has been a favorite of a lot of Filipino, and this is Lasagna, a delightful pasta dish oozing with multiple layers of meat and sauce on every layer of pasta and cheese, giving every bite a wonderful experience.

But what makes lasagna so special? The Greenwich Lasagna Supreme, for instance, an all-time favorite of actress and Greenwich kabarkada Yassi Pressman, has four delicious elements that make it so hard to resist.



It's beefy. One of the secrets to a great lasagna is in the meat. Greenwich uses high-quality ground beef that is perfectly simmered, browned and delicately flavored with spices to release its juicy and beefy flavors. If cooked correctly like the way Greenwich does it, the beef fl…
