“We have always chosen brand ambassadors who are passionate about food and life. Carla Abellana is a wonderful actress. She loves to cook for her friends and family. She’s very eager to improve her cooking skills and learn new things in the kitchen. On the other hand, Chef Jackie Ang Po is our multi-awarded culinary expert. Since she’s a chef and a mom, she can easily relate to mothers on dilemmas and challenges they encounter in preparing food for their family. Both Carla and Jackie have a wholesome, family-oriented, approachable personality consistent with the Del Monte Brand. “We’re very happy to have them as part of the Del Monte Kitchenomics Family,” said Aquino.
Chef Jackie related that she fell in love with cooking because she considers working with food as an art form. "You deal with flavors, textures, then colors, then you can choose plates, placemats, drinks that go with the food and make a whole artistic presentation that people really appreciate."
When asked what she felt after finding out that she was chosen as DMK brand ambassador, Chef Jackie said "I am very excited to work with a brand that has been in my home since forever. I grew up watching Del Monte Kitchenomics. I copied the recipes on TV. Cut out magazines and can labels. I cooked with my mom – I am an only girl with 4 older brothers. Even when I got married and moved with my grandmother in law during the first 5 years of my marriage, Del Monte is still in our kitchen. Both home and professional kitchen. Never did I actually imagine that one day, People would be watching me do Del Monte Kitchenomics."
As for Carla Abellana, she shared "I was excited! Not only is it a blessing but an opportunity to learn how to cook basic, affordable, easy and quick dishes. I've always wanted to learn how to cook better. I knew it was going to be a fun learning experience."
