The Season 2 episode of Selena Gomez's cooking show, Selena + Chef with Fil-Canadian Jordan Andino is up now to watch on HBO Max. In the episode, he teaches Selena and friends how to cook two staple Filipino dishes: chicken adobo and turon.
Selena and the gang get right to work making the savory adobo and rice. She even learns the finger measurement technique for how much water to add to the rice! Jordan expresses his excitement in sharing these dishes with her because Filipino food normally doesn't often get the spotlight.
One of the highlights of the episode was the turon making. Jordan sent a full size fresh jackfruit that had everyone shocked. Although, that didn't stop her. She was a pro at wrapping the turon that her friends were impressed. The process was super easy that had us wanting to try it ourselves and Jordan has us covered with the recipe!
Jordan video calls his Lola showing their final products. Selena gets the approving, "that's okay." We know we did well when Lola says that's good or okay. It's a fun episode that will have you craving Filipino food by the end.
