I’ll be teaching a green juice and smoothie workshop at Yoga Camp, a wellness weekend being held at Cintai Corito’s Garden in Balete, Batangas on May 25 to 26. You’ll discover how fruit and vegetables in liquid form can alkalize, detoxify, and heal the body. We’ll tackle superfoods too, thanks to friends at Superfood Grocer. Hope to see you there!

Hi friends, I’m conducting a workshop on vegan dairy and cheese alternatives next Friday at Chefs On Parade in SMX. March 1, 9am to 11am. I am honored to be 1 of the 9 women (of a total of 40) “culinary luminaries” invited to host a workshop. I’m excited to share more healthful and compassionate choices to dairy and cheese with the mainstream attendees. If you happen to be in the neighborhood on the 1st, come and say hi!
Get schooled this June in burgers, Greek food, pub food, raw food, green juice, pies. Full menu here.
Well hello there. I know I should’ve posted this recipe last week but I spent last week doing major R&R after a packed summer. How have you been?
So in case I haven’t talked about it enough, I conducted a vegan cooking demo at Yummy Magazine‘s fabulous food fair last May the 26th in Rockwell Tent called Yummy Eats. It was pretty packed. My face appeared on the big screen which I did not expect. My team and I prepared enough samples for a small army. I was slightly nervous but I was comforted by the fact that I get to share my vegetable nerdery with people who don’t necessarily make vegetables a priority in their diet.
Lots of good food went around – mostly omnivorous. There were 2 vegetarian tables, though.
Wabi Sabi Noodle House and Vegetarian Grocery had a pretty artistic table (they won the award for best design) and gave out samples of vegan chicharon. Their kuapao sandwich rocked, too. Pipino Vegetarian had a booth as well and gave out free samples of vegan mac and cheese and Cuban grilled corn.
The vegetarian love is slowly growing!
I made 3 dishes for the demo and I promised folks I would post the recipes on my blog. I’ve decided to post them in 3 parts. Part 1, here we go.

Wow. When I made my schedule for April and May, I did not expect things to get crazy. In a good way.
A lot has happened for Kitchen Revolution…
I started summer cooking classes for kids.
And in the process, two of my former colleagues and I had a mini reunion when they sent their daughters to class!
I taught a couple of cooking workshops for public school kids in partnership with Hands on Manila and Starbucks Philippines. It’s all about starting ‘em early, folks.
I really should get back to recipe testing (last na ‘to, promise!) but I just wanted to let you all know that the world must be coming to an end because — well, the reasons are 4-fold:
- Vegan cooking appeared on mainstream television last year (link here)
- Vegan cooking appears regularly in one of the top food magazines in the country starting this year (link here)
- Cosmo magazine celebrates a vegan chef as one of the fun, fearless, females of 2012 (link here)
- last but not the least…
There will be a vegan cooking demo at Yummy Eats, one of the biggest food(ie) fairs in the country.
Seriously, I never thought I’d see the day… But it’s happening.
On Saturday the 26th, stop by Yummy Eats at the Rockwell tent and watch me demonstrate a few of my favorite plant-strong recipes. I’m on at around 5:00pm so make sure you pass by then!
Philippines, I’m going to turn you plant-strong, just you wait. But in the meantime, it’s back to the kitchen.
Edited to add: (05/16/12)
Check out the line-up of chefs and cooking demos here. I’m the only vegetarian chef on the program, by the way (and by the looks of it, probably the only female?). While I’d love meat eaters to try the food I’ll be cooking, herbivores I’m counting on you to come veg-represent. There will be limited samples so sit close to the stage.
Mark your calendars, Northerners. On Saturday the 19th at St. Luke’s Medical Center Quezon City, discover how a whole food, plant-based diet can prevent cancer and support cancer treatment. If you or a loved one is currently battling cancer and would like to learn how to prepare mouth-watering dishes using cancer-fighting foods, this is the workshop for you. This 2-hour session is information-packed and you will get tastings of the dishes prepared.
RSVP is required. Please contact Joselyn at 723-0101 ext. 5427. Workshop fee is P100 — super affordable, yo!
In partnership with Corridor of Hope, St. Luke’s cancer support group and Ryan Fernandez, cancer fighting boy wonder.
*This is the second time I’ve been invited back to give a workshop at St. Luke’s. Last October I was asked to conduct a green juice and smoothie workshop which was pretty well attended. I think there were 50 people who came to see me talk about the benefits of vegetables in liquid form.
Hello from Cebu! Am currently here to conduct an Earth-day cooking workshop happening tomorrow at Maribago Bluewater Resort. Just wanted to report to the interwebz that I’ll be conducting another vegan workshop in Tiaong, Quezon next Sunday the 29th at Hacienda Escudero. If you’re in the area or if you’d like to spend a leisurely Sunday out of Manila, definitely come! Check out the poster below.
This Sunday is Earth Day and I’m marrying my love for food and love for the environment into one fantastic cooking workshop at Maribago Bluewater. I visited this lovely resort last January to conduct a cooking and juice workshop at their Amuma Spa. I had a blast and they’ve invited me back for another one.
Not only will I be hosting a cooking workshop, I’m making sure there will be amazing vegan options at the event’s lunch buffet. I’m gonna keep hush hush about the food, but trust me — you will be eating well.
If you’re in Cebu, love the earth, and curious about how vegetarian cooking can help save the planet, come to Bluewater Maribago’s Earth day family festival and say hi! It’s gonna be a fun Sunday — come spend it with me.

One of my hopes for 2012 is
for vegetable world domination / the vegetable apocalypse that the Philippines gets healthy, one meat-free meal and one green juice at a time. I’ve been doing my part so far through my Manila-based cooking and juice classes and workshops, as well as the occasional out-of-town trip (I know I’m overdue for a blog post on the Negros Organic Farmers Festival!).
I am pleased to announce that on the 21st of January, I will be heading Cebu-side and conducting a cooking workshop in the morning and juice and smoothie workshop in the afternoon in Amuma Spa, Bluewater Maribago Beach Resort. Catch morning yoga by Robert Vecchioni and a mindful eating workshop by Dr. Bill Ramos in the afternoon.
I haven’t visited Cebu since I was a young girl. I am particularly eager to check the beach out. I mean, I am practically quivering in excitement:
I’ll be giving a presentation to the Manila Women’s Forum on the benefits of a plant-based diet next Monday. If you’re a member of MWF, come and say hi!
The Manila Women’s Forum is a cross-cultural network of women from different countries. It provides opportunities for members to build friendships, to talk to women of various cultures, and to share information about resources. Their meetings are intended to provide intellectual stimulation and lead to personal and professional development.
For more information on the Manila Women’s Forum, check out the e-group here.
