Drew Arellano Cooks, But What About His Wife Iya Villania? 'She Loves To Wash The Dishes.'

DREW ARELLANO is currently hosting a travel show, "Biyahe ni Drew", and an infotainment show, "Aha". He now has another ace up his sleeve, a cooking show, "Home Foodie", which starts airing on August 10 weekdays after "Unang Hirit" and weekends within "Balitanghali". Does he really cook? "I do, I love to cook for my wife as we don't have helpers at home," he says. "I really challenge myself kung magugustuhan ng wife ko ang luto ko."

Does his wife Yia Villania also cook? "She loves to wash the dishes. But more than cooking, I'm a real foodie, someone who really loves food, so I'm surely honored and proud to have been chosen as the host of 'Home Foodie' which has a unique format. It will run for only three minutes and you can upload it online on your cellphone. We have three top chefs from San Miguel Pure Foods Culinary Center who will alternate in dishing out recipes in each show, Llena Arcenas, Rene Ruz and RJ Garcia. They will reinvent and give new twists to usual dishes using San Miguel Pure Foods products, like bistek Tagalog with pasta and camto beef and siguedillas using Pure Foods All purpose Cream instead of the usual gata or coconut milk. It'll really help people like me na gusto talagang matutong magluto."

And why was Drew chosen to host this show? "He's young, a true blue foodie and when we were thinking of a possible host, siya agad ang naisip naming lahat," says Chef Llena. "He is the perfect host for 'Home Foodie' as he has wide appeal and he can also inspire and encourage men to spend time in the kitchen and help in the cooking."

So how's marital life with Yia? "It's great. Everyday is a blessing." When do they plan to have a baby? "Right now, we're both busy hosting many shows, so siguro by next year na."
