Cook Pinoy Christmas Recipes that family and friends will love!
Chef Jessie Sincioco is coming back to The Maya Kitchen! This event will be the last event for Maya Kitchen’s Culinary Elite Series this year. Today she’s preparing Pinoy Christmas Recipes titled The Flavors of an Elegant Filipino Christmas.
I can tell that The Maya Kitchen went all out with the preparation for this event. The band was playing Pinoy classic Christmas songs when we we entered The Maya Kitchen. There were people mingling and laughing and I couldn’t help but smile myself. There were Christmas decorations and a drool worthy Christmas table setup by Rustan’s. The event felt like a family party!
It was a indeed a homecoming and Chef Jessie told us about how she started her cooking and baking career at The Maya Kitchen. She was the winner of The Great Maya Cookfest in 1983.
Winning the contest, she added was her ticket to the food world. And what a journey it was! Under her sleeve are 3 owned restaurants under her own corporation -JCS Gastronomie Inc. As president and CEO of her own company, she is running her three outlets completely hands-on. And to top it off, a dream job where she cooked for Pope Francis himself on his 2015 visit to the Philippines. Stitched to her Chef Uniform are the words I Heart Pope Francis.
The recipes we learned for today are the following:
- Smoked Milkfish & Bihod Pie with Croutons
- Mesclun of Local Greens with Marigold & Crispy Coconut Flakes in Coco Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing.
- Cochinillo Stuffed with Atchara Rice
- Kinulob na Manok
- Tiger Prawns with Laing
- Dark Chocolate Fudge Orange Cupcake

I’m just a regular mom like you. And like you, I know, being a mom, everyday is a battle. And it’s not a job for the weary. With this blog, I want to reach out to all the moms out there, who, inundated by the perfect mom of ads, magazines, and social media, try to be all things and ends up depleted, exhausted, unhappy, depressed.
In the search of being a perfect mom, we miss the fun of watching our kids grow, leaving our marriage and relationships unattended.
And everything becomes an unending list to check off. We produce picture perfect homes, gleamingly clean kitchen, Instagram worthy food that we forget to celebrate little successes like finally cleaning that window you’ve been meaning to clean this whole summer, or getting your husband to fix the dripping sink, or your son fixing his bed on his own without nagging.
So yes, let’s all leave that perfect mom idea behind.Learn more
