Food Tastings is a free cooking class for foodies and kitchen savvy people, presented by ABS-CBN Publishing Inc.'s Food magazine and the Lifestyle Network. The classes are held throughout the year as a treat for celebrating the 20th anniversary of Food magazine.
The first leg of the Food Tastings series titled “a Pizza and Pasta Class” featured easy-to-make home pizza and pasta recipes taught by renowned chefs Nancy Dizon Edarlin, Portia Baluyut and the chefs behind Project Pie.
It was a well spent Saturday (March 21) where we got to watch free cooking classes, try out all the dishes and had a fun time making our very own customized pizza. Here’s a preview of the event itself:
The class was held at Project Pie, Tomas Morato. Project Pie Philippines is an artisan-inspired create-your-own-pizza place conceptualized by James Markham who pioneered the Chipotle-style assembly- line custom pizza niche.
Chef Nancy and Portia taught us FIVE easy pasta recipes: Conchiglie with Sun Dried Tomato and Goat Cheese, Pasta Negra, Pasta Portobello, Chicken & Chorizo Summer Cream Tomato Pasta
For her last demo, she showed us how to cook Seafood pasta with squid ink or the "pasta negra". The challenge was how to get the squid ink. Apparently, you could buy a bottle of squid ink in specialty supermarkets.

Thank you, Food magazine and the Lifestyle channel for inviting us in one of the Food Tastings event. We can't wait to be part of the next series and explore recipes on health and wellness, hearty breakfast meals, and delectable sugar rush gift ideas.
