Self-love and nourishing food in Taste Buddies this November

Beginning November 7, your favorite food and adventure duo Solenn Heussaff and Gil Cuerva are off to escape the ordinary and try something new with fresh episodes of GMA News TV lifestyle show Taste Buddies.

This Saturday, join Solenn and Gil as they give viewers a breather from the stress and chaos brought about by the pandemic with their “escape goals.” For the first “escape goal,” Gil goes to WIN Farm, a 9.1-hectare farm in Cavite that advocates the organic and integrated approach in farming and becomes a certified plantito. Here, he tries his hands at planting and harvesting vegetables and herbs, as well as feeding the farm animals.

Solenn, on the other hand, tries to make the big switch to organic with the healthy eats from David Licauco’s online store.

The Taste Buddies hosts cap off their “escape goals” with a workout session using the trending “resistance band”—perfect for strength training and toning the muscles.

Meanwhile, on November 14, Kapuso stars Thia Thomalla and John Vic de Guzman join Gil to get a dose of adrenaline boost in Camp Benjamin. Watch Gil scale the height of the camp’s 30-foot wall while Thia and John Vic defy gravity at the 100-meter long zipline. The trio ends the day with a relaxing and Pinoy dinner at Mon’s Restaurant—a place perfect for romantic dining set up and other special occasions.  For those at home, Solenn gives them yummy reasons to go vegan with pastries and desserts from Dr. Tam’s Vegan House.

Everyone deserves to relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.  On November 21, experience a picture-perfect getaway trip to Camp Benjamin’s Shalom Hotel with Gil, Thia, and John Vic.

The three give viewers a tour around the hotel’s best rooms and amenities. Tapping into their more adventurous side, Gil, Thia, and John Vic try to brave Camp Benjamin’s Bubble Slide. After that, our Taste Buddies find time to chill while taking a dip in Shalom Hotel’s refreshing pool and outdoor jacuzzi.

Meanwhile those at home need not to worry because home buddy Solenn shows us how to relax and have an exciting “me time” at home with a delicious serving of seafood, fresh from fellow Kapuso Neil Ryan Sese.

Love yourself and indulge in your favorite food and adventures with Taste Buddies, serving new episodes every Saturday of November, 8:45 p.m., on GMA News TV.
