They’re back! Carla Abellana and Chef Jackie Ang Po are back for the 2nd season of Del Monte Kitchenomics airing on July 12 on GMA-7. This season features dishes accessible to all types of cooks, be it the beginner or seasoned the Kitchenomics team has ensured that there will be something for everyone. The focus of the show will be on easy and affordable recipes making sure that the meals you try are budget friendly and nutritious without compromising the taste. Del Monte believes that healthy cooking should start at home.
The marked difference from other cooking shows are that the recipes can actually be created. Whereas some shows have ingredients that are not readily accessible, Del Monte makes sure to give ingredients that you can easily buy at your local market. Having been around for 30 years, Del Monte has prided itself in the Filipino taste and sharing recipes for Filipino families and their pallet. They’re also reviving the tradition of home cooked meals which I have to admit will always be the best. We may crave for different cusines but we’ll always keep coming back to Filipino dishes.
You might be familiar with Kapuso leding lady Carla Abellana from films such as the Shake Rattle and Roll series and the TV show Rosalinda.
I got a chance to ask Carla a question which was “Why did you choose to work on a project such as Del Monte Kitchenomics?” She answered by saying that she found it to be a learning experience. She also wanted to learn tips and tricks that she could apply to her own cooking. Carla also enjoys and has fun working with Chef Jackie and the Kitchenomics team.
Chef Jackie Ang Po is a graduate of California Culinary Academy and worked in San Francisco before setting up her dessert café Fleur De Lys a 14-year-old café and pastry shop in Tomas Morato in Quezon City.

She also won a bronze medal at the Singapore Food and Hotel Asia for a plated dessert category in 2014.
Aside from the Del Monte Kitchenomics show they also have tips on the Del Monte website and Facebook page. You’ll be able to get your kitchen solutions through these avenues making it a one stop shop for all your culinary needs.
