What you'll do

Come to my West Seattle lounge, and learn how to roll authentic Filipino lumpia; a traditional Filipino dish. Lumpia is best described as a Filipino version of the egg-roll, only better! At the beginning of the lesson you will enjoy a traditional Filipino meal (lumpia, rice, shrimp pancit, and chicken adobo), and afterwards you will learn how to roll the perfect lumpia. There will be music, and television available for entertainment. My favorite treats from the Philippines will also be served; mangoes, cracker nuts, and banana bread. In true Filipino fashion, there will be plenty of food for everyone to take home.

Other things to note:
You do not need any previous cooking experience to complete the class.

My name is Gennell, and I am the owner of “My Filipino Grandma” a Seattle-based catering company specializing in Filipino cuisine. Ever since I was a little girl, I would roll lumpia with my Filipino grandma. As an adult, I became a caterer and continued to make her special recipe with a little twist & extra love. I would love to teach you about the Filipino American culture, mainly the food.

This was such a fun experience! Gennell was such a great host, very patient and encouraging while teaching me to make lumpia. I highly recommend to anyone looking to expand your cooking skills and trying out new foods. All of the food was on point!

Gennell was a fantastic host and fantastic teacher. My lumpia are gorgeous and I feel really confident that I’ll be able to make them at home. Gennell made us the best dinner with tons of leftovers. Her chicken adobo was the best I’ve ever had. Highly recommend!
