Bacolod-bred JP Anglo has a love for food that runs through in veins – having grown up with a foodie family,  exposed to the restaurant industry since the beginning. 

The hit show explores the beauty of our country and its rich cultural background. Chef JP travels the Philippines to learn, cook, immerse himself in local traditions, and to scout out the best, unique surf spots.

After hanging out with the locals, Chef JP then interprets these classic age-old dishes. He puts his own spin, making them more contemporary. JP loves that the show, which combines his favourite things in life, food and surfing, is also a constant learning experience.

Travelling the country, meeting new people, has opened his eyes to the colourful stories behind these indigenous dishes and has taught him how to utilise local ingredients in brand new ways.
