Some Cooking Tips from Kuya Daniel

Kuya Daniel suggested one of his techniques in sautéing. He said that he adds the onion first before garlic in order to prevent it from burning. Also, burnt garlic may release an odd taste to the food. By stirring the onion first and adding the garlic after, the dish maintains its natural combination of flavors.

Kuya said, “we always check the label of our food yet we forgot to check the label in which we will prepare them.”

In cooking Pancit Bihon Guisado, the veteran broadcast journalist said that he uses The Fundamental Kitchen’s cookware brand, BergHOFF, the only kitchenware that uses eco-friendly metal which can preserve the natural taste of the food being cooked.
