I am excited to announce that one of our book projects, the Flavours of Iloilo Cookbook has been awarded as BEST BOOK ON FOOD for the 2023 National Book Award. The Flavours of Iloilo Cookbook is truly a testimony of our rich culinary heritage as Ilonggos.

I extend my heartfelt thanks to the National Book Development Board, Manila Critics Circle, and our nominator, Kasing Kasing Press.

This recognition comes at a perfect time, coinciding with Iloilo City’s UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy status, highlighting our efforts to promote Ilonggo culture and culinary traditions.

My wife, Rosalie Sarabia Treรฑas, deserves special recognition for spearheading these endeavors. I would also like to thank all who were involved in this project most especially for the support of Iloilo City Government’s co- publisher, the Iloilo Festivals Foundation, Inc (IFFI). And thank you for the hard work of the creative editorial team — editor Michaela Fenix; book designer and creative director Ige Ramos; author, food styling and kitchen development Rafael Jardeleza Jr. with the chefs for recipe development, John Marie P. Chavez, Maridel P. Uygongco, Wilson P. Esperancilla, Geronimo S. Treรฑas; the photographer Joshua James P. Enriquez; writers/contributors; Project manager Leny T. Ledesma; marketing team Paolo S. Treรฑas and Myka B. Perlas, plus to the sponsors and everyone who were there to make this all come together.

As a team, we’ve accomplished something truly amazing: the 41st National Book Awards BEST BOOK on food title belongs to our cookbook. This success shows that we can achieve amazing things when we collaborate!
