Nicole Ponseca, book author, entrepreneur/restaurant owner visited Iskwelahang Pilipino on a regular Sunday session. She judged the annual ‘Lutuan cook-off” along with another food author, Regina Tolentino Newport, as they inspired our future chefs with encouraging words. Nicole later sat down with the community and talked about her pride growing up as a Filipino-American in San Diego and now living in the East making Filipino food mainstream in the culinary world with her new book, I Am A Filipino and This is How we Cook, a 2019 James Beard Foundation Book Award finalist.
