Hello! My name is Bayani Inclano Jr, or chef B. Where do I start? I love to cook and eat food. I’m a Filipino, born and raised in Guam, and now currently inhabiting the city of Oakland, California.

Representing Filipino food in a way that’s representative of my culinary life experiences has always been the way I wanted to create it. It has and will always be a multicultural gathering on a plate, or bowl. Filipino food to me means family gatherings, toro toro restaurants, and the dinner table in my childhood home.

Today I am a sous chef at Pixar Animation Studios. I am surrounded by creatives and it drives me to be much more unique but still respectful of what Filipino food originally means to me. Thank you for your time. Paalam.
