Bongga Sa Kusina
Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez wears another hat as a cook-slash-talk show host on the GMA 7 show Sarap Diva, where she indulges her passion for the kitchen with friends from the showbiz industry each week. As she enters her 30th anniversary in showbiz this year, Regine celebrates with a sumptuous treat for her fans and followers: a cookbook filled with Sarap Diva’s delightful culinary creations and amusing celebrity encounters.
Regine Velasquez’s Bongga Sa Kusina: Recipes from Sarap Diva brings together delicious and practical recipes that have been featured over the four-year run of the cooking show since 2012. Bongga sa Kusina shares with readers personal specialties and heirloom concoctions by Regine, Chef Jonah Trinidad, and 30 celebrities who have appeared on the show, including Marian Rivera, Alden Richards, Jaclyn Jose, and Martin Nievera.
Sarap Diva wouldn’t be complete without the highly entertaining, hilariously revealing exchanges that take place between Regine and her guests each week, and like the show, Bongga Sa Kusina contains personal anecdotes and good-natured gags shared by Regine’s showbiz colleagues and friends. With everything from marriage tips straight from Heart Evangelista Escudero to funny jokes by Regine’s own hubby Ogie Alcasid in its pages, the treats in Bongga Sa Kusina clearly don’t end with the recipes.
