CHEF BOY LOGRO REVEALS 'ROYAL' RECIPE
Before becoming a celebrity in the Philippines, chef Boy Logro became the personal chef of the Sultan of Oman.
In the cooking show "Solane Kitchen Moments," he revealed the recipe that gave him his "royal" status.
This is Avocats aux Crevettes, a cold French hors d'oeuvre mainly made of avocados and shrimp. With some adjustments, he made the recipe his own and served it to the Sultan, who shortly after called for the sous chef.
Since then, Logro served as the personal chef of the Sultan, accompanying the latter in his travels and serving the likes of Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana.
Watch Logro's episode on "Solane Kitchen Moments" to see the chef recreate his Avocats aux Crevettes.
