About me

Hi! I am Colene Tan and I'm a professionally trained chef and F&B consultant who has worked and traveled both locally and abroad. 

I graduated from Enderun Colleges with a degree in International Hospitality Management majoring in Culinary arts  and have been working in the food and beverage industry for more than 10 years now.

Join me as I explore the Philippines in search of heritage Filipino recipes and underrated local ingredients. Wanting to share that knowledge and keep the culture alive, I also update these recipes with a healthier twist and making them available for everyone to learn.


My advocacy is to bridge the gap between Philippine consumers and producers through sustainable and holistic practices in food and tourism while showcasing the beauty and possibilities of Filipino cuisine and agriculture.
