Regine Hosts Cooking Show ‘Sarap Diva’

It is often said that the food you cook becomes tastier if you sing while you are cooking.

If this is so, then Regine Velasquez-Alcasid will become the best cook in the world.

During the press launch of her new TV show on GMA-7, she sang first, then made a demonstration of her cooking skills. She shared later to the audience what she cooked - some kind of a noodle recipe which tasted good indeed!

Her cooking show, entitled "Sarap Diva," will start airing this Saturday, and every Saturday thereafter, at 10:45 a.m. before "Eat Bulaga."

Music of course will be a regular part of the show. Regine's brother-in-law, musical director Raul Mitra, will join the show which is directed by Treb Monteras II.

"I have always been cooking in the house especially after I got married," Regine revealed. Did Ogie love her cooking? "Definitely, yes," Regine also said. "Everything I cooked is always his favorite."

"I would admit though that I am not an expert cook," Regine explained. "So, what would I be doing in the show? I will invite excellent chefs and ask them about their expertise. The audience and I will therefore learn together."

Coming up also in "Sarap Diva" are celebrities who love cooking.

Interestingly enough, her son, Nathaniel James a.k.a. Baby Nate will also be given a special participation in the show, and so with her pet dog, George.

Regine is busy singing in "Party Pilipinas," and hosting too her first magazine talk show "HOT T.V." And today, at 10:45 a.m. on GMA-7, we shall find Regine in the kitchen cooking while singing or singing while cooking via "Sarap Diva."
