Chef's Quote on Baguio

“Baguio used to be something you remember as this nice place to go to, not too many people and really cool. It’s not like that anymore. We have to do something about the place. I’ve got a lot of advice and help. When they see that you’re sincere, and they try to give you advice, do it this way, that way. Thus the birth of Mother’s garden.”

MOTHER’S GARDEN is an establishment that is practising zero waste management, conserves water by re-using kitchen water and rainwater for watering plants and cleaning animals pens. Chemicals are not allowed and only natural ways are used to clean, fertilize and avoid pests. SHE is beyond organic gardening leaning towards BIODYNAMIC gardening. The consultant for the garden is Dr. Jose Balaoing PHD Organic Agriculture who trains the farmers and inspects the animals and plants. The Executive Chef is Therese Jison who took culinary courses abroad and travels yearly to keep current on themed restaurants, gourmet cuisine and food fusion. Another partner, Heinrich Maulbecker, a retired hotelier, handles the service. For these three, MOTHER’S GARDEN is a retiree’s hobby and an opportunity to gain brownie points for the next life through their advocacy.

All three, Mr. Maulbecker, Dr. Balaoing and Chef Jison share their knowledge and expertise in honing HRM/ HRS and Agriculture graduates from faraway places of the north and the south so they may land jobs in high end restaurants and farms abroad.

  • In the year 2009

    Quezon Hill Proper, Baguio City

    Chef Therese Jison acquired the 2,000-square-meter family property in Baguio. The land was originally bought by her mother. Chef Therese recalls that the first time she saw the property, it was overrun by illegal settlers. After winning a couple of court battles, she finally reclaimed the land and started to do something with it. 

  • In the year 2009

    How it started

    A small cottage with a garden and some animals at the sloping property was initially built. Pretty soon, Chef Therese Jison and partner Heinrich Maulbecker, former general manager of the Hyatt and The Manor, gave in to their friends’ request to put up a restaurant.

    Mother's Garden Restaurant

    “I opened the restaurant on April 10, 2010 because at the time, Baguio was known as the basura city so we lost the high-end tourists. Back then, I was already in the food industry, supplying meals on boats for island-hopping, mostly chartered by Europeans and an American diving company.”

    - Chef Therese Jison

  • Dine In

    For casual dining, there’s the open, breezy courtyard setting. For formal dining, there’s Mamma Mia on the second floor with its narra and mahogany tables, and family heirloom antiques that give an ancestral home ambiance, as well as glass windows for a postcard-pretty view of the surrounding hills.
