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.

My daughter and I loved meeting Gennell. She is the coolest and so much fun. I have always wanted to learn how to make Lumpia and now I know. What a fun experience during our rainy visit in Seattle. Be sure to sign up! xoxo

Such a fun experience! It was very laid back and Gennell knew the perfect amount of entertaining vs letting us enjoy our own company. The food was delicious and she was great at helping us learn how to make lumpia! She also sent us home with SO MUCH FOOD! Like enough for 3-4 more meals. Amazing experience and would definitely recommend.

If you’re thinking about it - book it. The food is amazing and Gennell is a great hostess. She not only fed us well, but sent us out the door with more for later.
