There is something truly different and inspiring about home cooking. Especially for Filipinos who place great importance on family, home cooking means so much more. Mealtimes do not just transcend the food or the taste, it is also about love and relationships. Kaya naman talagang masarap makisalo sa mga taong mahal mo sa buhay.
(That is why it is really nice to enjoy food with your loved ones.)
As food is central to Filipino life, it is undeniable that its role is crucial in uplifting the family's overall well-being – may it be through care, joy, or hope.
With all these elements as the main ingredients, MAGGI cooks up the first digital anthology you can taste. MAGGI Kusinaserye is directed by Pepe Diokno and Randolph Longjas, starring multi-awarded actress, culinary maven, and mom, Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo. It is also Judy Ann's first digital anthology.
Sticking with MAGGI's All-in-ONEderful theme, there are three films in the anthology with three genres – family values drama, hopeful drama, and horror comedy. Siguradong mabubusog kayo sa tawa, sa drama, at sa sarap.
(You will surely be filled with laughter, drama, and flavor.)
MAGGI Kusinaserye hopes to bring families together and give them inspirational stories to watch and savor together. It is also a celebration of good food and the hardworking cooks who make them.
Santos shares that the stories are very simple, but they are very true with scenarios that will relate to many Filipinos. There will be elements that will speak to you, it can be a strict mom, loss of employment during the health crisis, or heirloom recipes passed on from one generation to another.
''Every Filipino household connects through food," Judy Ann added. "It is basically bringing the family together again through food.''
The first short film which premiered on May 3, 2021 is called ''Komander 'Nay'' and it is all about family values. Judy Ann plays Mila, a strict military mom who is home on furlough after being injured. She finds herself at odds with her teenage kids who are not used to her presence as she is always away on duty. They eventually bond over cooking, paving the way for understanding. Ito din ay patunay na ang magic ng alaga ay nagsisimula sa unawa.
(It is also proof that the magic of caring begins with understanding.)
The second film is the hopeful drama ''PAG-ASArap'' followed by the horror-comedy ''NakakataCooks'' which will go live on May 10 and 17 respectively. All three films will be available on MAGGI's YouTube and Facebook pages.
Central to each film is a MAGGI dish that anyone can try at home, you only have to visit maggi.ph to get the recipe, allowing you to taste the featured dishes as you watch.
With Mother's Day coming up, these are the perfect films to enjoy watching with your loved ones dahil masarap manood kasama ang buong pamilya.
