Heartwarming, heart-healthy Filipino cookbook to launch in Long Beach
“We Cook Filipino” by Jacqueline Chio-Lauri is poised for its debut, adding to the plethora of cookbooks filled with heart-healthy Filipino cuisine and inspiring stories from chefs and food personalities.
Authored by the UK-based Filipina, the book reflects on her commitment to promoting well-being through wholesome recipes.
The grand launch is scheduled for Nov. 19, Sunday at Kubo, Long Beach, LA, at 6 p.m. The event, hosted by Bel Canto Books, will feature talks, book readings, signings, and a feast of Filipino delights provided by Island Pacific Market.
Born out of a genuine concern for her family’s (and Filipinos’) heart health, Chio-Lauri’s culinary journey began with a mission rooted in her experiences of living in countries where Filipino ingredients were scarce.
This journey inspired the creation of “We Cook Filipino,” a cookbook designed to bridge the gap between indulgent Filipino cuisine and heart-conscious living.

In the process of creating the book, Chio-Lauri collaborated with chefs, food writers, culinary professionals as well as contributors from around the world to ensure a diverse range of perspectives.

Chio-Lauri’s dedication to promoting healthy Filipino cuisine doesn’t end with “We Cook Filipino” though. Next year, she will venture into the realm of picture books with “Mami King,” a heartwarming story that brings people from different backgrounds together over bowls of mami (Filipino noodle soup).
