Mel’s Specialties

Between growing up around a family of Filipino recipe experts, and her on-going adaptation to Belgian cuisine, from where she now resides, Mel continously masters creative ways in preparing fiery-delicious meals for her loved ones. From her lobster dish, to her cocosmilk papillote, to chicken adobado or tortang talong, Mel can cook a meal from whatever ingredient she has at the time.

What she learned as a cook from a prominent restaurant in the city where she lives, has contributed to that natural talent in food creations that she now possesses. Despite all that, she never forgets her roots, and how she was brought up, as far as meal preparations are concerned. No surprise!
