The Foodie Station and other male bloggers were recently invited to a cookout with Chef Rosebud Benitez, one of the top celebrity chefs in the Philippines and host of Quickfire, a 10-minute television cooking show broadcasting several times daily on GMA News TV.


It was A normal day turned magical when our very own cook/correspondent, Ace Capellan, entered the doors of The Cookery last Feb 20, 2018. His mind was set on cooking. Little did he know that he would finally meet his longtime crush, Chef Rosebud. And by longtime we mean, circa high school days. And take note, Ace is now a young professional, a foodie, and a selfmade cook. When they shook hands… fireworks!


The moment Chef Rose started talking about how easy it was to make their own Tuna Pizza and Tuna Wraps using Gold Seas Tuna Chunks, Ace attentively listened and executed the instructions with determination.


One thing for sure, Ace was able to Ace the Gold Seas Tuna Chunks challenge!


But hey, inspired or not, cooking with Gold Sea Tuna Chunks has never been easier. Its premium and gourmet taste turns an everyday tuna dish into pure bliss. If these boys were able to do it, so can you!!!


Gold Seas Tuna comes in six variants: Yellowfin Tuna Chunks in Olive Oil, Yellowfin Tuna Chunks in Olive Oil with Chili, Yellowfin Tuna Chunks in Springwater, and for the gourmet variants they have Tuna Chunks with Herb and Garlic, Tuna Chunks in Lemon and Pepper, and Tuna Chunks in Mild Indian Curry. With each can comes a GENEROUS chunk of tuna. Yup, canned tuna never tasted this good!


So come on, show your A-game and create the same dish yourselves using the recipes we share below:
