Chef Boy Logro’s Ping – Ping – Ping Life

Actually, a lot of cooking aspirants hail Chef Boy Logro as a supreme kitchen hero and that includes me. I’m a regular watcher of Delicioso which is hosted by Ms. Sam Oh and Ms. Jackie Ang – Po where they showcase easy steps on preparing bravura meals as well as pastries and desserts. They introduced Mr. Logro, in a certain episode, as the guest chef and did a scrumptious boneless crispy pata. As he demonstrates on how to debone the hind legs, skills flourish while he did it with a twang; so easy as a, b, c. For sure, several viewers of that show did impressed with Mr. Logro’s wittiness and cooking supremacy. Although, some people are making fun of the way he talks, it doesn’t matter. After all, he is the highest – paid chef in the Philippines. It's better to focus on the way he cook and not the way he talk.

Chef Pablo “Boy” Logro as we all know start in humble beginnings. He only finished his elementary years and didn’t manage to continue. They lived nearby in a small house by the sea with his father Justiniano as fisherman, mother Consorcia together with eight brothers. He went to his uncle in Manila to work and able to help his family as a houseboy in a Chinese Restaurant in Quiapo for P50/monthly. He speaks only Visayan language so he cannot understand Tagalog. Therefore, going to market wasn't that easy, he'll draw the things he needed and able to show to the seller then he’ll make transactions after it.

Later, he was employed as a dishwasher in Astral Villa Restaurant in Makati. Mr. Logro has been a protégé of Spanish Executive Chef Antonio Cuadrado Perez. With continuous perseverance and hardwork, Mr. Logro had a chance to work overseas in 1982. He impressed the Sultan in Oman which makes him accompany with His International trips enabling him to taste and learn foreign delicacies like French, Turkish, Japanese, Spanish and more. Furthermore, his family joined him in Oman provided with life that they could not ask for more.

After several years missing the place where they came from, Mr. Logro and his family finally went home in 1992. He joined the team of sous chefs in Manila Diamond Hotel and garnered the title of the first and only Filipino Executive Chef in a five-star deluxe hotel in the Philippines within three years. With all his accomplishments that even himself surprises him, he decided to settle down in the lands of Cavite. Mr. Logro thinks that he can share his talent to individual as well as youngsters and provide them an attitude and correct approach in cooking. Now, established in Gen. Mariano Alvarez, Cavite, Philippines is the Chef Logro's Institute of Culinary And Kitchen Services.
