Dish That Defined Your Career: Sandy DazaDecember 8, 2017
We ask acclaimed local chefs to create for us what they think is the Dish That Defined Their Career.
Famed chef, TV host, columnist and author Sandy Daza agrees to sit with us at his restaurant in Powerplant Mall once it opens at 10AM. Once we arrive, the mall is already bustling and the seats of the restaurant start to fill up fast with customers interested in Daza’s take on local cuisine. While the din of dining customers starts to take over the atmosphere, Daza enchants us with his penchant for storytelling, his natural charisma, and his warm presence, showing us what a master at cooking looks like when a camera is pointing at him.
Wooden Spoon isn’t your ordinary Filipino restaurant filled with well-loved classics done home-style. Daza has a flair for taking familiar flavors and adding his own original point-of-view to create a dish that has his signature on it—unsurprising flavors in a surprising presentation—an approach that he talks about with us today as we discuss the dish that defined his career.
