posted in: life-innovators | 0

Our life innovator Yana Gibuena travels to new cities, states, & countries every week creating creating culinary delights through her pop-up dinners. This feat requires a ton of collaboration with strangers (or soon-to-be-friends) while she brings regional Filipino dishes to communities and raises money for victims of Typhoon Haiyan. We discover that delicious things happen when you take people out of their comfort zones.
