Treasured Recipes at Cafe Marco


When ever i find a reasons to go up Nivel Hills, am there.

Days ago i got an SMS invite for the Media Launch of Cafe Marco’s yet another Culinary Journey, this time Treasured Recipes of  Cebu top Culinary Icons.

Tina Ebrada, Ilonga by birth Cebuana by heart, who founded The Golden Cowrie.

Senorita Teresin Mendezona, a Cebuana with Spanish and Palestinian ancestry, Cebu’s Culinary pride.

“My grandmother once told me the ‘cooking is an art and eating is a habit.’ Although initially i did not mind her encouragement to learn the art of cooking, i later realized how important it is to learn to cook. It is not only a fine preparation for marriage, but an inheritance  that stays on for generations to come.” goes Jessica Avilla opening speech.

Guest at the Media launch were treated with a refreshing Lemonade with Basel leaf.

Marco Polo’s GM Hans Hauri introduced to the croud the Men In White, the powerhouse cast of Cafe Marco’s Kitchen who for day’s labored with Senorita Teresin and Madam Tina.

After the introduction, a short opening ceremony follows.

Then we were able to sample the Treasure.

I really enjoyed eating my way to Cebu rich culinary history.

But don’t take my word for it, you have to try it yourself.
