Meet Chef Marvin. A young and good-looking Celebrity Chef. He has cooked food and dishes for the likes of Vice Ganda, Dennis trillo, Joey Marquez, Maricel Soriano, Cristine Reyes, among others. He has guested in TV shows like Kitchen Superstar (channel 7) with Chef Boy Logro, Curiosity Got A Chef (Lifestyle Network), Unang Hirit, Umagang Kay Ganda, and others more. He’s also the “owner” of the hands in that famous Chowking commercial.
And that’s enough to brand him as a Celebrity Chef. But for this humble and charming Chinito young man, he doesn’t feel at all like a Celebrity.
“I just feel that I was lucky enough to have guested in those TV shows and sometimes became a judge in some cooking shows”, Chef Marvin told a blogger. “But if that’s what they call as a Celebrity, well, fine and okay. I also feel great to have cooked food to some popular stars who invite me every now and then. They are very nice people. I just do my job and make them eat the food that I cooked well. I want people to feel happy every time they taste my food.”
Chef Marvin was raised in Tayabas, Quezon province. He has been a Chef for ten long years now, and he used to teach in the Academe of Cooking.
But Chef Marvin’s most important accomplishment is being able to be the Royal Family in Dubai’s Chief Cook.
“That was a great experience”, Chef Marvin told this blogger. “I was able to please them and got-in with their taste for food. One time, I cooked a dessert for them and they totally enjoyed it- and they increased my salary! But one thing I’ve learned from them, don’t let them eat garlic.”
Chef Marvin’s forte is the Mediterranean Cuisine. These is the kind of dish that’s so extravagant, delicious, yummy and huge. he also loves to cook Pastas, bake cakes and experiment with sweet desserts.
But what is Chef’s Marvin’s secret for being a good Chef?
“You just have to simply enjoy the food”, Chef Marvin said in the end. “It’s more than the enjoyment that matters. It’s your love to make other people happy.”
Very well said, Chef Marvin!
