Power Of Pen 8: Mindanao Culinary Culture Research and Writing Basics - I won one of the three slots for best essay


I’m thankful I’ve joined this forum.  I was able to see my ADDU professors back when I was still doing my Master’s course.  But more than that is the idea that I got to learn more insights from the authorities in the field of food writing.

I do write about food, but often I feel there’s something lacking about it. I then realize I need to integrate research more on what I write than just a mere description of the food I ate for me to be called to a food writer.


It was humbling to know and learn more about the craft I’ve learn to love, and especially when the one’s sharing ideas are accomplished people - authors, writers, doctors, editors, chefs in the field of research and writing.

I always challenge myself to level up everytime I do my pieces. So when the workshop came telling us to write an essay about food I told myself, ‘at least just be one of the best 10’. I wrote from memory, just the things I can remember about food, my grandmother and how it was being cooked and done. 

When the verdict came, I actually didn't expect to win one of the three slots given for the best essay of the workshop. Thank you.
