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?
Knife skills faster than a speeding bullet?
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’s table. Their banh-mi is reaaaally good. They have egg-free mayo on hand, too.
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.

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.
