GET IT STRAIGHT FROM CHEF BOY LOGRO:
- The tastiest and simplest dish in the world for me is and will always be “INIHAW na ISDA”
- On Discrimination: Yes, Filipino Chef’s are being discriminated every single day (below the belt ang pag discriminate) – specially like my self who never get to finish formal studies.
- If given an opportunity, it has always been my policy to grab that opportunity – my reason is that, if in 2 or 3 years that opportunity expires at least I have already capitalized and earned from it.
- On Attitude: Pick up the good things and forget the ‘non-sense’ – ‘Pag minura ka – tawanan mo lang. Napakaraming magagaling na Chef pero because of their attitude hindi sila nagiging Idol. Kung graduate ka, lalo ka dapat na maging mapag-kumbaba.”
- I dream of a unified Filipino dish – hindi yung ‘the best of pampanga’ or ‘the best of bicol’, etc. But ‘the best of Filipino’ – a signature dish that is truly Filipino.
- My secret: Prayer.
- “After how many years mawawala din tayo – ang tanong ano ang nagawa mo?”
Two newlyweds will be Chef Boy Logro’s Celebrity Co-Host for the first 10 episodes of KUSINA MASTER. Kapuso stars Jolina and Kyla.
