GRACE LEE also shared a lot of interesting details about her hosting the show.


Is this your first hosting gig in a cooking show?

No. Its my second. The first one was Eateria, it’s more of a cooking travel show, we feature a lot of food, local delicacies but we also have some cooking portions on it, But if you talk about pure cooking , Cooking with the stars is my first.

Do you also go to restaurants and try other dishes?
Oh Yes, when there’s new restaurant in Manila tina try ko talaga. And when I travel my travel is centered on restaurants, breakfast dito lunch dyan tapos dinner san tayo pupunta ngayon. Im not of a U.S. person. When I go to Italy I go more to Europe than US but I love mga Asian countries also like Thailand, there’s fantastic food there. Syempre when you go to hongkong it’s like a melting pot, you have the best French, the best steak in Hongkong.


What are your favorite Restos here in Manila?

Well, Italian cuisine I love Caruso. Japanese, Oh I think Dusit has one of the best Japanese restaurants. Spanish I think its Casa Armas, well they maintain the good quality of food. And there’s one for Comfort Food, the Chateau 1771 , a lot of good comfort food, very traditional.

What are you favorite FOOD?

Favorite Food:
Kare Kare, Sinigang , Adobo, Fusion, Pinakbet, Ampalaya yung mga ginisa. (smiles)

At the beginning Grace Lee shares she’s very much thankful to GMA and San Miguel Pure Foods for trusting her with this project. She also mentioned she recently finished culinary school and her past time are reading cookbooks, researching recipes – “So mahilig talaga akong magluto at mahilig din talagang kumain. Kaya when I eat, I eat with gusto!” Grace concluded.

In addition, the show also has “Cooking Star of the Barangay”, where they will visit some barangays, bringing with them a live brass band and dancing food servers, which will definitely get residents of these barangays in fiesta mode.
