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 Filipino 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!

I appreciated the preparation Ai made to teach us about her culture. This made her class fun and interesting. She taught us a lot about food. Ai helped me make the pancit with tofu. It was soo delicious. Hope to take another class with her soon.

Ai was personable and knowledgeable! It was great traveling virtually to the Philippines. I felt like I was family cooking with an expert. The pancit tasted so yummy! I highly recommend this experience.

I gave this experience to my mother-in-law and her sisters for Christmas. They grew up in the Phillipines and hadn't been back. They LOVED it. They learned a lot, thought the food was delicious, Ai was knowledgeable andfantastic, and they had so much fun. They are considering doing it again for a social virtual outing with their friends. Thank you!
