  • September has interviewed notable chefs and restauranteurs in her home country and a couple of international ones, such as Hugh Mangum and Gaggan Anand.
  • Her most favorite food-writing experience was covering the then-rising trend of American-style barbecue restaurants opening in Manila and how it would fare against the local way of cooking and serving the dish.
  • She also enjoys discovering kitchen hacks that improve her limited skills but generally prefers to eat food prepared by people who know what they're doing.
