  • FOOD HACKS: Shigeji Shares 3 Easy Recipes You Can Try At Home
  • There is a lot of talk about “Choi-tashi” (a little extra) cooking where you can make a tasty new version of a store-bought dish just by adding a few ingredients. This time, we’re introducing you to Mr. Shigeji, an expert in “Choi-tashi.”

    Primer reader, Mr. Shigeji is a 2021 Philippine Department of Tourism Certified Travel Meister. He was born in 1962, the same year as Tom Cruise, and has been to the Tokyo Olympics twice (not that he was competing, though). He created a philosophy in life that “cooking is the science of experience and imagination.” He said that you can also use instant food or convenience store food in order to make these simple and excellent recipes.
