yesterday i had to go out and buy a newspaper, something i havent done in years! and it struck me that the same thing is happening to people with Heneral Luna, saying they havent been to the theater in years yet here they are. the Lord be praised!
Production designers Benjamin Padero and Carlo Tabije left no stone — or should I say plate — unturned when it came to the food styling.
i had to go buy a copy of the philippine star because chef claude tayag featured the food in HENERAL LUNA in his article. we’re so honored to be mentioned. and im also glad we really took the time to understand the food along with consulting chef gene gonzales of cafe isabel and in turn was provided with the technical expertise of chef toto gonzales for the food in the banquet scene. we also consulted with chef gene on plating, even the use of brandy, and fencing!
thank you chef claude for the wonderful article. the HENERAL LUNA FB PAGE posted a photo of the newspaper in print yesterday. click on the photo for the full article online. a full description of the food we featured in film is in the article 😉
