Chef Laudico brings his kitchen online


    The past few months of staying indoors has significantly changed our habits, routines, and even plans and outlook. To break the monotony of being holed up at home, many are discovering new hobbies and interests, starting their own business or taking up short courses to learn new skills. Still many are rekindling their relationship with food through cooking-planning meals and creating various dishes for the whole family.

    To help budding cooks, La Germania is bringing top chef Rolando Laudico’s kitchen online starting August 21 in its #CookingTogetherWithLaGermania series.

    Through the online series, the celebrated chef can share some secrets and cooking hacks while preparing unique recipes that anyone can do at home to make meal times more special for the whole family.

    “Navigating this new normal is indeed a challenge. I think we must take it upon ourselves to look for something that not only helps us overcome the difficulties we face but also allow us to contribute to society as we all battle this invisible enemy,” shares Chef Laudico.

    Chef Lau will be the main host of the #CookingTogetherWithLaGermania series, which will feature recipes by the chef and his guests. Chef Lau will be joined in the 15-minute cooking episodes by food journalist Stephanie Zubiri, culinary entrepreneur Karel Marquez and the entire Laudico family.

    The series will run for five months and will have a total of five episodes, which will be livestreamed on La Germania’s official Facebook page. Full recipes of what’s been prepared during the episode will be published on the Instagram page of Chef Lau and his featured guest for those who want to try the featured dishes at home.

    Kicking off the series last August 21 is Chef Lau and Stephanie Zubiri’s special take on the beloved Filipino dish Bicol Express. For the second episode, which will be livestreamed on September 11, Chef Lau will be joined by a very special guest, his wife and fellow chef, Jac Laudico. The culinary power couple will be cooking a recipe that holds significance in their story — Spicy Shrimp Halabos, the very first dish Chef Lau cooked, preparing it at just seven years old; and the same dish he prepared for Chef Jac on their first date.

    Succeeding episodes will be livestreamed on October 23, November 27, and December 18.

    Those who missed the livestream can still access previous episodes on the same page.

    “Back when I was starting my business two decades ago, it was La Germania that I trusted to be my kitchen partner. Now, I am happy to work with this trusted brand once again to share with you some nuggets of culinary wisdom that you can apply at home,” Chef Laudico says.
