Behind the Scenes of Cooking With The Stars!

There are so many cooking shows today which is a growing trend in Philippine television, we love to cook as much as to eat, and GMA-7 and San Miguel Pure Foods Company Inc. (SMPFC)have come up with a  new cooking show that will feature the country’s top showbiz and lifestyle personalities. TV host and radio deejay Grace Lee banners Cooking with the Stars.

We went behind the scenes on this new show and how its already cretaing buzz in the morning block. First let get to know the host Grace Lee, who is also a culinary student and also hosted another cooking show called "Eateria".  As a food lover, she goes to many restaurants and does reviews and shares recipies on her website. She gave us places she recommends for every cuisine. And she does these food trips when she travels abroad. All of these experiences  can be applied for the show.


“I am very much thankful to GMA and San Miguel Pure Foods for trusting me with this project. I recently finished culinary school and my 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!” she says.


Grace adds: “The good thing about our new show is that the dishes are easy to prepare. Pwede siyang gawin at i-serve ng kahit sino - the products that we use are readily available and of really good quality, sigurado ka pa na malinis! Here at the show, we always tell our viewers that for your food to be good, you start with products and ingredients that are delicious, safe and practical at a reasonable price. Sulit talaga if you use San Miguel Pure Foods products."


The other celebrities that joins her in every show are the chefs from  San Miguel Pure Foods Culinary Center, led by Chef Maricel Manalo and Chefs Martin del Prado, Rene Ruz and Kai Verdadero, who are came from different walks of life but united with the passion for delicious and quality food. 

“This is the first time that we are doing a show with this format, and we are happy to have Grace host it,” says Chef Maricel Manalo, Culinary Services Manager of SMPFC.  “As one of the trusted food companies in the country, we always aim to provide our consumers the best in terms of flavor, quality, affordability, and food safety. This show is for them, and we hope to be able to help Filipino consumers make wise, cost-efficient, and of course, delicious choices when it comes to preparing food for their families everyday.”

Of course, it wouldn’t be “Cooking with the Stars” without the country’s brightest stars. Every episode will feature a celebrity who has a food-related dilemma, which the show’s chefs will solve at the end of every program.

Another twist to the show is “Cooking Star of the Barangay”, where the show will visit barangays, bringing with them a live brass band and dancing food servers, which will definitely get residents of these barangays in fiesta mode.
To be shot at SMPFC’s state-of-the-art San Miguel Pure Foods Culinary Center, “Cooking with the Stars” starts airing on May 28 every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:55 to 10:05 am on GMA 7, with replays on GMA News TV every Tuesday and Thursday (7:00-7:10pm) and Saturday at 6:45 to 6:55pm.
