What you'll do

● This is for everyone that loves food and/or history whether you can cook or not!

Most people think that Filipino Food is all this fatty unhealthy exotic Asian Food. This experience is going to change your mind.

I'll give you tips on where to get the ingredients needed and the replacement ingredients depending on where you are.

I will teach you how to cook a Filipino dish (Randomly selected or you can request what you like and we'll see what we can do.)

WHAT ARE WE COOKING?
Please pick one of the following and inform me so I can send you the list of ingredients after booking :

*Lumpia (Filipino spring rolls or vegetable rolls)
*Kare-Kare (vegetables and meat in peanut sauce)
*Sisig (meat and tofu)
*Sinigang (Filipino sour soup)
*Adobo (meat)
*Pancit (Filipino noodles)
*Dessert(we can make Filipino Halo-halo or shaved ice, flan, or others)
*Fish (we have a lot of easy to cook fish dish)
*DO YOU WANNA LEARN HOW TO COOK RICE WITHOUT RICE COOKER? I CAN TEACH YOU!

If you are not that comfortable in the Kitchen or cooking is not for you, it's totally fine since watching me cook is okay while we talk about the history and background of the dish we are making.

Imagine eating something you made after learning how the dish was born into this world.
Other things to note
"While you're in your place, I'll be in the Philippines but it doesn't mean we're far. I will try my best to bring you the AUTHENTIC FILIPINO taste and history you've been craving. Have a beverage if you just feel like watching me cook and listen to my storytelling."

Mabuhay! I am Ai!

A Filipina Food Lover, Home Cook, Entrepreneur, and Life of the party!

Cooking has always been one of my greatest love. I grew up in a family with so much passion for food. I started my journey in the kitchen when I was 7 years old. Now I'm 30, and not to brag, but one of the best local cooks around. I grew up helping my Mom and my Aunt with their small restaurant business called "Karinderya" in our hometown.
Now, my goal is to introduce the REAL FILIPINO COOKING and change your mind about what our food is all about.
History is also something I am passionate about that's why I have a successful Airbnb experience in the past where I go around with guests talking about history. Now, we will combine the two!

Ai was a great host, very lovely and bubbly. The session was really interesting, and a really great experience to do with my Dad for his birthday, along with the rest of my family. The Adobo recipe was really yum, and it was interesting to learn more about Filipino food and cooking styles. Thanks so much!

Enjoyed learning about Ai's culture and heritage and the dish's relevance throughout Pinoy history. I'd recommend preparing rice in advance for some of the savory dishes.

We loved Chef Ai’s cooking lesson. We learned how to make leche flan and beef sisig. Yummy!! Please join her on a fun adventure in the kitchen. She was very clear in her instructions and we really enjoyed the meal we made with her.

I've learned a new recipe together with Ai's help! She is really a cute and shining personality. Full of positivity she taught me how to make "Chicken Adobo". I did not cook it yet just watched her "how to" - but I'm 100% sure I'll cook it soon. Looked really tasty! I appreciated that Ai gave me many good ideas on what I could pair together with this dish to get some variation! Loved it! Thank you Ai! :)

Ai helped me to cook traditional adobo! I actually failed last time by myself and this time I’m very glad to learn the proper recipe:-)
