One of a Kind Cooking Workshop: Pino Kitchen Studio

One of a Kind Cooking Workshop: Pino Kitchen Studio


Hectic Thursday afternoon.
1. Had three hours-worth-of-sleep (Zzzz. Prepared the presentation to the Center Manager the night before.)
2. PTC @ Ateneo (my little boy’s 2nd honor + will receive Subject Excellence Award in Language = Happy. Happy. Joy. Joy.)
3. Pino Kitchen Studio Open House
4. UP Diliman meet-up
5. Nikon meet-up
6. Office at 7 PM for Center Manager Presentation Prep


The highlight of the day was the Pino Kitchen Studio Open House. Been looking forward to it the whole week (Thanks Chef Ed for the invite). However given the delays at the PTC, I had to make up for lost minutes by speed driving down Katipunan Avenue-CP Garcia-Maginhawa St-and-Malingap St — sometimes my (un)glorious days of illy drag racing pay off, to dad’s dismay. But that’s a different story.

Pino Kitchen Studio is a culinary workshop for aspiring cooks and regular foodies, offering daily hands on classes and culinary demonstrations from basic to advanced culinary skills.


“Pino Resto Bar’s Executive Chef Edward Bugia, along with business partners PJ Lanot and Star Jose, team up with Qtv Celebrity chefs Nino Logarta and Jonah Trinidad to establish a one of a kind cooking workshop that aims to cater to the growing “foodie” market in the country. Pino Kitchen Studio will offer a variety of short courses that will range from various basic International cuisines to specialty lessons for housewives, kids, household help, and more! Students can choose between day seminars and monthly/weekly short courses. Weekend classes will also be made available.


Pino Kitchen Studio will also have classes that will boast a rotating array of guest celebrity chefs, entrepreneurs, and experts in various specialized fields such as business franchising, food styling, coffee appreciation and the like. It will also be made available for functions such as private cooking lessons, events, small caterings and photo shoots. If you are in any way in need of a fully furnished kitchen facility with a complete array of equipment, tools and support staff, then Pino Kitchen Studio is perfect for you!


Pino Kitchen Studio, the newest addition to the Pino group of restaurants and concepts, is located at 39 Malingap St., Teacher’s Village, Quezon City.
