MANILA – Rachelle Ann Go and the rest of the stars of the hit musical “Miss Saigon” showed off their cooking skills in a recent shoot for the magazine of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.
The cast members of “Miss Saigon” were seen preparing their favorite family dishes in a teaser video uploaded on YouTube.
On Instagram, Oliver uploaded a collage of photos from the recent shoot, noting how the musical stars “are pretty nifty in the kitchen too.”
“You can really feel how much of a family they are and despite hailing from all corners of the world, they manage to come together and share a bit of a taste of home through really lovely food. That’s what it’s all about after all!” the celebrity chef wrote.
Also on Instagram, Go said she shared her recipe for the Filipino dish gising-gising for the magazine shoot.
“I don’t even know how to cook before and now here I am… [I’m] Proud of sharing Filipino food to everyone. Anything is possible!” she wrote.
Go and the rest of the “Miss Saigon” stars dominated the WhatsOnStage Awards in London last Sunday.
The musical took home nine awards including Best West End Show, Best Musical Revival, Best Direction, Best Set Design and Best Choreography.
Lead stars Eva Noblezada (Kim) and Jon-Jon Briones (Engineer) won Best Actress in a Musical and Best Actor in a Musical, respectively. Go was named Best Supporting Actress in a Musical for portraying the hardened bar girl Gigi, while Korean Kwang-Ho Hong won Best Supporting Actor in a Musical for his role as Kim’s fiance Thuy.
Set during the final days of the Vietnam War, “Miss Saigon” tells the love story of the Vietnamese bar girl Kim and the American GI Chris. Kim was originally played by “The Voice of the Philippines” coach Lea Salonga in 1989.
