The teaser includes Andino’s Lola, who even critiques Gomez’s adobo through video call.
“As you all know by now, I’m not the best cook,” Gomez quips in the teaser. “But I’m not going to stop trying to get better. So I’m back in my kitchen to get schooled by the best chefs.”
Andino expressed his excitement on his Instagram page, where he described Gomez as a “dope-a$$ human.”
According to his website, Andino hopes to use his classic culinary training “to bring a Michelin star to Filipino cuisine.”
Gomez began the cooking show, which she also executive produces, while at home on quarantine amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The first season premiered last August. JB
