Traditional recipes are used only as a guideline for the innovative chef of No Worries. Jay-Ar Isagani Pugao, a 15 year culinary extraordinaire of Filipino vegan cuisine, took his mother’s original cooking methods and has taken it a step further. Instead of using meat in a predominantly meat-based food culture, he uses an array of substitutes, ranging from soy protein to wheat gluten to tofu to seitan. Jay-Ar Isagani loves to balance his dishes with colorful, fresh vegetables which bring life to the plate. He has been a pioneer in Filipino vegan cuisine and continues to innovate many traditional appetizers, desserts and entrees into vegan cuisine with origins from the Philippines.
