More about me:

My name is Vanjo Merano. I live in the Northern suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. I work as an IT professional, but cooking has been my passion since I was a kid.

I created Panlasang Pinoy (the blog and this youtube channel) to promote Filipino food and Filipino Cuisine to the world.

Who shoots your video and who creates the recipes?

I shoot all the videos myself and I write and develop my own recipes.

What equipment do you use?

I started the videos back in 2009 using a Pentax point and shoot camera. It is a priced possession because it helped me take this channel to where it is today.

At present, I use Panasonic Hc-X920, Sony FDR-AX100 4K Ultra HD Camcorder, and Nikon D5.
