TASTESETTERS: Bringing people together through their passion for food
If there’s one thing that unites every Filipino, it’s their unique appreciation for food, for discovering and trying out new cuisine and taking the bold leap from mere observers to bold, unabashed foodies lording over the kitchen with new culinary masterpieces and delights. This has become more prevalent at present, encouraging people to dig deep into their kitchens, coming out as budding chefs, promising home bakers, awakening their entrepreneurial spirit as social media became extensions of online communities and a burgeoning marketplace.
The allure of a tightly-knit, supportive community with a passion for food is what makes Tastesetters distinctive. Tastesetters is an initiative created by SYSU International, Inc. to enjoin food enthusiasts, F&B practitioners, entrepreneurs, and culinary experts in their shared love for food and beverage. It is a platform where foodies from all over the country can share and learn the latest in F&B innovations and trends. It aims to redefine food culture through elevating culinary standards and spreading the advocacy of developing one’s passion for food through learning and community engagement.
Tastesetters is not just a repository of menus and write-ups on food, it adds substance to its name by fostering an environment of learning and communal sharing of information on the latest trends in food preparation, food handling, health and safety in the restaurant industry, best practices in the culinary setting, running an F&B business, and more importantly, credible content on where food enthusiasts and serious restaurateurs can source the freshest and most affordable ingredients.
Further continuing on their passion for learning and continuous improvement in the F&B industry is the community’s desire to push industry members and even home cooks to further improve their craft and thereby creating innovations. Tastesetters’ three-year milestone includes innovation workshops done in Manila, Cebu, Palawan, Davao, Boracay, and Iloilo, partnering with several chefs and F&B connoisseurs and helping foodservice partners shape the next big trend in the industry.

Hi! I have tried using Balducci fettuccine pasta. I did the instructions. But when cooked, it seems like the pasta is a bit gummy. Can you give me tips to make it more al dente? Thanks.
Thank you for reaching out. Start putting the pasta after the water reached the boiling point and counting the cooking time from there. You may opt to cook it a minute less than the packaging instructions. Hope this helps.
