According to Judy Ann, “There’s truly something special about preparing meals for the people who matter in your life. I see that good food can put smiles on their faces, and I consider it an accomplishment that I am able to make people happy with the food I cook.”
‘Judy Ann’s Kitchen’ is the young superstar’s gift not only to her Filipino supporters but to anybody who loves food and cooking. The book is divided into sections. Among the classifications include comfort food, her recipes she cooked for her friends, her cuisines done specially for her family even a section for kiddie food, healthy cooking and other cooking hacks one can use.
“Ever since I can remember, I’ve always been into food,” Judy Ann admits. “I guess my love affair for cooking began as early as when I was a child actress who would hitch a ride with the caterers and hang out in their kitchen.”
During the press launch held at the C3 Events Place in Greenhills, she said that the kitchen is her domain and shares that she has no problem multi-tasking there.
Judy Ann shares that during the shoot with Raymund Isaac, she recalls that she was very serious when she is in the kitchen and that she hardly smiles. This is also the reason, along with not speaking straight English, why if given a chance to have her own cooking show she would be unable to talk while cooking.
In this cookbook, she highlights 44 recipes including her signature dishes Angus Tapa Sandwhich with BBQ Sauce, Grilled Shrimps with Jicama Salsa, Lemon Cake with Thyme and Lavender, Miswa Bona-Bona, Rainbow Cake, Sinigang na Munggo, Strawberry Mojito Cooler, and Triple Chocolate Champorado.
