Celebrity Chef Sharwin Tee will soon launch his new weekly TV show called “Let’s Do Lunch.” The series promises to be not your typical cooking show on television as aside from food, each episode will highlight personalities that have made a positive impact in today’s society as guests. It will give the viewers insights on their secrets to success, their mindsets and beliefs “through the lens of food.”
Such interviews will take place over a shared meal, which Chef Sharwin will cook for the guests. It will be a very candid, but sincere setting. The series hopes for viewers to truly get to know the guests and be inspired by their stories and views. Initial line-up of celebrity guests include Julie Ann San Jose, Kylene Alcantara, Derrick Monasterio, Donita Rose and beauty queen Mariel de Leon.
“Let’s Do Lunch” will air on GMA News TV Channel 11, every Sundays, 11:00 to 11:30am beginning November 11, 2018 and is being produced by Curve Entertainment Inc.
