We’re all used to collaborations—your favorite musician features in a song with our favorite band; our favorite artist designs for your favorite clothing brand; but your favorite chef collaborates with our favorite caterer? Now that’s never been done before.
And that’s exactly what The Blue Leaf aspired to do. Apart from being Manila’s premiere events venue, Blue Leaf events are known for their great food, thanks to their partnership with the best caterers in the metro. Together with Our Awesome Planet, they cooked up a three-part culinary event entitled “Who’s Cooking?” They brought together Manila’s most sought-after chefs and The Blue Leaf partner caterers for a first-of-its-kind collaboration to produce a mouth-watering 5-course menu exclusively available for events held at The Blue Leaf.
“We, at The Blue Leaf, have so much appreciation for delicious food. Food is at the center of some of life’s best moments. Food ties us all together, especially when it’s exquisitely made by our country’s very own top chefs and caterers,” Eugene Sandejas, Managing Director of The Blue Leaf said. “We partnered with Our Awesome Planet’s Anton and Rachelle Diaz, who both shared the same love for food like us to bring Who’s Cooking? to life. We wanted to share amazing and memorable food not just with our clients, but also with every person who loves a good meal.”
Food and travel blogger, Anton Diaz adds, “All we had to do was to provide a platform and opportunity for these food geniuses to come together, then step back and let the magic happen.” Who’s Cooking encouraged a cross-industry collaboration between the chefs and caterers, not placing restrictions to a certain cuisine or theme. “So, even we don’t know what to expect!”
Who’s Cooking paired 11 different chefs and caterers, who then yielded unexpected and exciting results, all showcased at the Grand Reveal Party last July 27 at The Blue Leaf Filipinas! It was a feast for both the eyes and the palate!
