Iya Villania And Drew Arellano Happy To Host The Fourth Season Of 'Home Foodie' And To Have Their Second Son Soon

IYA VILLANIA and Drew Arellano are hosting once again the fourth season of the morning cooking show, “Home Foodie”, that features the wonderful products of San Miguel Purefoods in delicious but affordable dishes that they call Madalicious Meals. It will start on June 11 right after “Unang Hirit”. Aside from Chef Llena Tan Arcenas, Drew and IYa will have new chef co-hosts, Martin Narisma and John Valley.

If you want to know how to prepare Madalicious Meals (which means madali na, delicious pa), just log on at www.homefoodie.com or get them at their Twitter and Facebook account, @HomeFoodiePH.

Iya is currently preggers with their second baby that will be another boy just like their first born, Primo. Will they try to have a baby girl next time? “We don’t know,” says Drew. “It’s all up to the Lord.”

“We’ll be happy to have a girl but we’re okay na rin kami sa two boys,” says Iya.

Someone asks Drew if he’d want to be actor, forgetting that Drew has made a movie before, the first “Spirit of the Glass” directed by Joey Reyes. “I want to,” he says. “Gusto ko rin makatanggap ng comments from directors.”

He’s obviously referring to the word war between Director Mike de Leon and Atom Araullo that certainly leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

He adds: “I’ve been telling my wife na parati na lang akong host so I want to act para magkaroon naman ako ng kissing scenes. With her.”

“That’s not true!” says Iya. “Gusto niyang magkaroon ng kissing scenes, pero sa iba. Gusto niya akong bawian.”

And they both laugh heartily.

Chef Llena says “Home Foodie” shows that men can also cook. “Drew showed that the sterotype belief that only mothers and women should cook is not true as even dads and men can cook well kasi we feature easy recipes, understandable and we don’t even use fancy equipment,” she adds. “Lahat, simplified kaya mas dumarami lalo ang viewers ng ‘Home Foodie’ as we give very practical tips.”
