Mabuhay ! I’m Theodore Day Salonga-a foodie and proud Filipino from south of Manila-Santa Cruz, Laguna ! I love to eat, and I love to cook. But sometimes what I love most is when someone else cooks. And when that person tempts my palate with sumptuous creations, I am inspired to eat more, to cook more and to dine more. Cooking is 25% technique + 25% Ingredients + 50% Inspiration.
In 2008, I was diagnosed with Myositis-a rare muscle dis-ease, affecting 5 in 1 million people. It did not stop me from cooking and living a life of my dreams. Placing my heart in every dish I create, I have reached my inner strength beyond my own limitations, proving my dis-ability has not won. I am a Pinoy on a mission : to cook, eat and celebrate life !
