Natalia and I are thrilled to announce the addition of Chef AC Boral to the Filipino Kitchen family!
*cue 90's Chicago Bulls intro music*
If you are a Chicago Bulls fan from the '90s, we are this excited. Seriously.
This special someone came to our lives last October, by way of Southern California, through an amazing pop-up dinner experience called RICE&SHINE. Natalia and I soon got to know that AC is a wonderful person, whipsmart and a dope cook to boot. Our ideas and observations on the Filipino and Asian American communities vibe and compliment one another. More importantly, we share with AC a mutual vision for what we want to create with and for Filipino Americans and Filipinos everywhere by way of our amazing food culture.
Starting today, AC is a full business partner at Filipino Kitchen. He will lead our pop-up dinners and any food-related ventures like farmers markets that we explore. This spring, he will move back to his adopted home, Chicago, so we can continue to serve our community with amazing Filipino food. AC will also contribute to our editorial team, and write articles and recipes (notice the new RECIPES tab on our page). His technical background and graphics know-how will also be welcome boosts to our efforts.
Please join us in welcoming AC to Filipino Kitchen! Remember: Everything is Cool When You're Part of a Team!
Natalia, AC and I would like to thank all of Filipino Kitchen's supporters -- whether you cooked with us or ate with us, cooked for us, came to our pop-up dinner, commented on our social media posts or let us interview you and showcase your food. Thank you for sharing your journey with us. Here's to Filipino food! Here's to a happy, healthy New Year for us all!
