Home cooking is an integral part of Filipino custom and traditions. For the past years, a myriad of restaurants and food crawls with international dining options emerged in different parts of the country, but nothing ever came close to Philippines’ colorful array of delicacies. That is why Discovery Country Suites’ culinary team, headed by Chefs Anthony Raymond and Rhea Sycip, in collaboration with, Chefs Nancy Reyes-Lumen and Jaja Andal worked on a project entitled, Feast of Colors, that took inspiration from the vibrant colors and vigor of Tagaytay’s lush landscapes. This concept was also inspired by the recently-held charity dinner of Chef Sau del Rosario.
