As I mentioned before Chef Boy Logro is a well- known chef in my country Philippines. I admire him not just because he is a very good cook but because of his humble beginnings before becoming the popular chef not just in Philippines but also in some countries. Anyway, he has this cooking show that I love to watch. He is very entertaining and the show is very helpful especially to those people who doesn’t know how to cook a dish and he will teach you to recreate the usual dish that we used to cook. I already shared Pata Tim recipe before but the verdict is I love Chef Boy version 🙂
