I would like to share this recognition to The Happy Toque, my husband, Chef Stephen Anthony Serna, Ivy Veneracion of EATscetera and Sweet Bakes by Honey who inspired, encouraged and helped bring my Sama Ka Na Caravan ideas to life.
Thank you to Sama Ka Na’s core vendors, Trina’s Table, Angge’s KITCHENomics, Socal Sisig, CL’s Kitchen, WOW TAHO USA and tatay_ry who have significantly contributed to Sama Ka Na’s success. Thank you, Ma Wie (our vendor coordinator) for all your hard work which helped widen Sama Ka Na’s reach in 2022.
Thank you so much to all the vendors who join our events and of course, our patrons and customers for your continued support of our pop-ups in every city that we visit.
Maraming salamat, Spotlight Awards for this honor. When we started the meet-ups during the height of the pandemic, I never imagined that Sama Ka Na will reach this level where it is recognized by award giving bodies in the Filipino American community. I am truly at awe and inspired to do better moving forward.
God bless us all.
