We had a hard time finding cooking shows featuring Filipino food. So, we made our own!
Recently, I got together with a few friends to make a media entertainment group called Awkward Hi 5. Among the various programming we’re putting up, we came up with a Filipino-American cooking show – Kain Na! In each episode, I’ll be cooking up some of my own interpretations of Filipino dishes with some friends gathered around the table, hungry and ready to eat.
In our first episode, we were lucky to have some special guests:
- Dre Echave: An amazing magician. You read that right – MAGICIAN! (youtube.com/dremagix, facebook.com/thedremagix, Instagram: @thedremagix)
- Jason Chu: LA based rapper on a mission. (youtube.com/jasonchumusic, facebook.com/jasonchumusic, Instagram: @jasonchumusic)
- Lady Basco: Big influencer in the spoken word scene and major contributor to the arts. (Ladybasco.com, thestageisopen.com, Instagram: @ladybasco)
On the menu is Ribeye Bisteksilog w/ Crispy Rice, and Halo-halo Snow. I’d talk about the show more, but I’d hate to keep delaying you from watching such an awesome show.
