Hello! My name is Roni and I am the founder of RoniB’s Kitchen. I was born and educated in the Philippines and have been living in the UK for 18 years now together with my life partner, Steve. I started RoniB’s Kitchen in 2017, the year I was turning half a century, as a side hustle and to complement our supper clubs, where it became a mission of mine to make Filipino food known, appreciated and loved because it is an unknown cuisine here in the UK.
My love of food started very early on. I have an insatiable appetite for delicious food and at the age of 12, I started venturing into the kitchen and my culinary journey began with baking cakes and cookies. As I grew up, I moved into the more savoury world, paying attention to international dishes as these were not usually cooked at home, as our home fare were very much based on local and regional dishes.
Moving out of my parents’ home and my native country has pushed me to become a better cook and understand what is locally available and re-create dishes from my food memories of the Philippines that celebrates the bold and complex flavours of the land and sea, but also the subtle taste influences of our Southeast Asian neighbours, as well as Spain, Mexico and America. My products are my tribute to a cuisine overlooked by many but unforgettable to those who have tried it.
From 2016, when I first introduced Philippine cuisine in a cook-off for the ‘Best Alternative Christmas Dish’ on TV, to contributing a dessert recipe to The New Filipino Kitchen cookbook published in 2019, to holding 2 Great Taste Awards for our Black Bean Chilli Oil (1‑star Great Taste Award 2019) and our Kalamansi Marmalade (2‑star Great Taste Award 2020), it is my hope that you will take a culinary journey with me to the flavours of My Philippines.
