This is one person I’d like to meet, and am glad The Maya Kitchen is making it possible. Catch renowned Chef Sandy Daza share his favorite recipes for Shepherd’s Pie, Crispy Fish with Garlic Sauce, Shrimp Puttanesca, Spam Fried Rice, Coq Au Vin and Bread Pudding in a special cooking demo at The Maya Kitchen in Makati City on November 24, Saturday, from 9am to 1pm.
The place can easily get full so I suggest you sign up now. Chef Sandy is busy with a lot of things, among them managing his own resto Wooden Spoon in Katipunan Avenue, hosting Kitchen Confidence which airs every Saturday on Cignal TV and writing his food column in the Inquirer. His array of credentials include a degree in hotel and restaurant management from Cornell University in New York. He also attended Ecole Cordon Bleu and the American University both in Paris, France and went to Mandarin Hotel Cooking School on Thai Cuisine in Bangkok, Thailand. Yes, Sandy Daza was The Chef long before today’s babes-in-the-woods celebrity chefs came into the fore. Surely, I’d like to know from him such things as how to make darn good fluffy fried rice and how to whip up a good sauce for bread pudding. Am sure there’s a lot more cooking secrets he can share in the class.
