Pokwang to launch own cookbook


022317-Pokwang_PUSH.jpgIt's no secret that comedienne Pokwang is also a mean cook in the kitchen. So her social media followers were delighted upon learning that she's about to launch her very own cook book. 

Titled, "Patikim, Pokie! A Hugot Cookbook and More...Ganern!" the book will feature Pokwang's best kept recipes including her friends Angelica Panganiban, Kris Aquino, Vic Sotto and Vice Ganda's favorites. 

In previous interviews with PUSH, Pokwang openly shared how she came to love the art of cooking. “Kasi ang tatay ko isa siyang kusinero so every time na nasa kusina si tatay nandun ako palagi. Nakikialam ako sa kusina, tapos lumaki kasi kami na kami-kami lang ang sa bahay. Nanay ko kasi mananahi, tatay ko wala so kailangan talaga namin matuto ng mga gawaing bahay so ako yung nakatoka sa pagluluto,” she said. 

She also revealed how she comes up with her unique recipes. “Siguro malaro yung isip ko pagdating sa ganyan. Yung mga what if ganituhin ko yun, ibahin ko yung timpla, ibahin ko yung ingredients, maganda naman yung kinakalabasan, in all fairness naman. Unang-una kong pinapatikim sa anak ko kasi siyempre ang mga bata minsan mahirap pakainin so kung minsan naa-appreciate niya ayun, bongga.”

Pokwang's cookbook is released by ABS-CBN Publishing and will be available in National Bookstore branches next week.
