Culinary Samplers from Heaven at Madrid Fusion Manila 2017

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The 2017 Madrid Fusion Manila brings together once again the culinary expertise of many great chefs and restaurateurs from all over the world to the Philippines. It is such a great [pleasure to be among the officially accredited media to cover the event. I don't really know where to begin because there are so many stories to tell especially when the event happened for several days, and participated by so many of our best and brightest food experts. I am proud to say that we have constantly been outdoing our greatness from the previous years. The Philippines have enough talent to proudly showcase to the entire world.

As expected, the first day begins with many opening ceremonies from the formal launch to the ribbon cutting, and even before that was the press conference for media. The days I spent at the event was overwhelming for I got to taste so many awesome samplers from all over the country and the world. I am doubly excited to taste their full version someday. But it was better that they just gave away samplers because with so many giving them out, you won't have enough room in your tummy for everything.

Naturally, you will be tempted to try out everything, and take a second or third serving if the dish was really good. In my case, 90 percent of the dishes that I've tried were more than just satisfying. Was it me or I just love to eat? I am adventurous too in my preference so I welcome all kinds may they be spicy or uncommon. With so many chef being very creative with their masterpieces, there's no telling how many creations were served during those days, and I am proud to have been a part of this event.

So I met Chefs for the first time like Chef Tatung, and met again the likes of Chef Claude Tayag. Got to do a video selfie with the Department of Tourism -Tourism Promotions Board (DOT-TPB) Chief Operating Officer (COO) and celebrity Cesar Montano, also a photo ops selfie with the Secretary of Tourism, Wanda Tulfo-Teo, plus a lot more personalities involved with food and drinks. But the best of all is the opportunity to witness Filipinos emerging as top choices for food preference. Though the country is open to global cuisines, the Filipino dishes remain to be among our favorites.

Opening Ceremonies where done separately for both the Conference and Expo, and participated by Tourism officials Secretary Wanda Teo and TPB COO Cesar Montano, along with Madrid Fusion officials
We Filipinos simply love to eat that there seems to be a never-ending list of restaurants and food establishments being born everyday, yet still many flourish to become successful in the food industry. It is a very competitive business but since we all need to eat, there's plenty of room for everybody.

Capping off the first day was an event held at SM by the Bay where we get to acknowledge some of the chefs who joined the celebration. The Tourism officials were also there to participate and dine on another set of meals provided by a few restaurants sponsoring the night event called Fusion of Flavors. The final moment was a formal toast that ended with a superb fireworks display. SM is one of the major sponsors of the 2017 Madrid Fusion Manila so it was expected that the celebration even transcended all throughout other SM Malls aside from the SMX Convention at SM Mall of Asia complex.

At Madrid Fusion Manila, we all get to experience what everyone else have to offer, and everyone also learns from each other. Collaborations and partnerships are born, and new friends, associates and colleagues become ultimately more intimate and personalized.

This is the magic of Madrid Fusion Manila. They were all there to make an impression, but overall, everyone involved showed the world that we can unite to flaunt our capacity to satisfy the cravings of all attending guests.

I'm so excited for next year's Madrid Fusion Manila. See you again in 2018!
