Cook Magazine Celebrates Its 12 Years Of Sharing The Good Life!

     Cook Magazine began in 2000 to recognize the huge difference between restaurant food and home cooked food. It was designed & written for the millions of Filipinos who are fanatic about home cooking by hobbyists and foodies superior including articles and recipes made for and by food lovers.
In the past, the magazine had been covering artisan foods from meals to snacks, beverages, cheeses, condiments, meat and seafood categories, perhaps the biggest bulk of the selections have been sweets—fine candy, artisan chocolates, cookies, brownies and desserts.

In reply to the shifting market and consumer needs, the new COOK Content looks at the future of food and its role in pop culture. Food editor Chef Danny De la Cuesta gathers a handful of food visionaries, industry practitioners, celebrity chefs for great food exchange in all the magazine’s 2013 issues. In the 88 pages, it will discuss the newest and best products, food recommendations, reviews, how-to’s, reference articles, culinary destinations, product recipes or go-to source of consumer information in the dynamic food category. It will also include artisanal and small-production consumer items that readers might not have discovered on their own plus information on how to use them to make everyday dining and entertaining easier and more exciting.
Cook will make a lot of editorial on mass-produced brands, food service and food festivals, widening its reach to industry professionals because it promises to be the only consumer publication that will review best brands of foods, restaurants and beverages in every category.
The management & staff of COOK Magazine hosted an early holiday bash to thank their advertisers, friends, partners and all those who rallied behind the magazine this year.
The December issue that will hit stands in the first week of December 2012, features Katrina Ponce Enrile as the cover image- a fashion influencer and a culinary entrepreneur. She describes Cook Magazine as "an institution and a community for so many people that it created a new category- homecooks- when it launched and has remained the highest-selling cookery title in its entire market life.”
The event also took the opportunity to make public the New Look and Conceptual Direction of the Magazine that will be offering consumers an ever more diverse way of accessing its brand, in print through the magazine, and bookazines, online through the website and mobile and face-to-face through our Food Events.
Today COOK is a market leading-food magazine, selling 83,500 copies a month. Each issue is packed with over 44 recipes for everyday meals, easy entertaining and dishes from food experts. The Cook magazine cookery team tests every recipe published. The magazine is available at all National Bookstore, PowerBooks, Booksales, 7-11 outlets, Mini-stops and other leading outlets nationwide.

Catch The Village People Live At SMX Convention Center This NOv 17!

      For many decades now, The Village People has been entertainig us with their groovy kind of dance music. A  group that formed in the United States in 1977, well known for their on-stage costumes depicting American cultural stereotypes, as well as their catchy tunes and suggestive lyrics.

The Village People’s iconic stature has created very influential impact on pop cultures all over the world. If you put together images of a police officer, a construction worker, a big biker, a soldier, a native American, and a cowboy, nothing ever comes to mind but The Village People. From Halloween to retro and disco-themed parties, chances are you’ll find a gang dressed up as The Village People.

The Village People dishes out hit after hit after hit. “Go West”, “In the Navy”, Milkshake”, “I Am What I Am”, and “Can’t Stop The Music”, are just some of their biggest hits that shook the world and triggered as a disco revolution, hailing them as ‘Kings of Disco’. They ruled over the 70s until some parts of the 80s. Their careers mellowed down at the onset of the new wave era. Yet, their influence on music, pop culture, live performances have never waned. They’ve continued touring the world, guesting in television shows, and some members pursuing solo projects. The Village People’s characters, looks, may find traces or references of Village People characters in the video game Grand Theft Auto, tv shows like The Muppets, The Simpsons, Married With Children, That 70s Show, and movies like Wayne’s World. As if these were not enough, their albums, especially those Greatest Hits and Best Of compilations, are still raking in sales.. Thus, it comes no surprise that they have sold over 100 million records (and still counting) worldwide. Their Star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, which was awarded to them in September 2008, is indeed well-deserved.
Party with the World’s #1 Party Superstars! Village People Live in Manila on November 17, 2012, 8:30pm at the SMX Convention Center.

Achieve Financial Peace, Attend Batang Pera-Henyo Conference, This NOv 17, 2012!

       I was just fortunate to have attended the Batang Pera-Henyo Conference 2012 press conference today at Vista Center Worldwide Corporatee Center, and learned that kids should learn how to handle their own finances at the earliest age, that they may have a high financial quotient. I was delighted to know the line up of speakers, whom im sure, would be of great inspiration for kids to learn from, in this conference!
At School Talk, we strive to bring real life education to shore up leadership and positive influence. We believe that it is better to train young people to what is essential and critical later on in life. While they are young, such training cannot be delegated or altered.

 As we continuously strengthen the financial education in the country, now focus on young people, families, and communities, School Talk’s flagship event “BATANG PERAhenyo 2012” Conference unveils the requisites of personal finance and money management. We are propelled to equip the youth with the help of each parent about a common thing – MONEY.

Indeed, our country is on its track in becoming one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Yes, believe it or not, it’s true! Question is where will you be when it happens? And as life presents itself are we proficient to sustain in the countless money snags that we have to face daily or simply we’re bounded to be greenhorns and stumble from one to another financial distress? Are our children ready to manage their good inheritance or are they just wretched in debts? What can you say about savings, debts, investments, insurance, retirement? Did you prepare for this? Do you prefer to delay it or act on it now because you believe you can do better?
 As a start, we all would agree that there is hope in this nation and that it will happen soon if each of us will take part. Which, basically emphasizes what all of us have in equal, TIME… Our children are already leaders of this nation then let’s bring them up in a lifestyle of financial freedom!

This is why we would like to invite you and your child to be part of the “Batang Pera-Henyo Conference” happening this 17th of November at the Vista Center, Upper G/F Worldwide Corporate Center Shaw Blvd., Mandaluyong City from 9AM – 5PM.
