I Love Dessert: A Video

posted by in Events

It was my first time in the Fully Booked store in Alabang, a gorgeous structure geared for lovers of books. Situated off to the corner, in a space that’s as much a seduction as it is a sanctuary for the senses, is Press Café. It’s the venue where this video was shot, a video where I talk about my book, why I was hesitant to include my cheesecake recipe, and where I gush about my love for beef cheeks and banoffee pie (the recipes of which are included in my book).

Massive thanks to Kayo and Kiddo Cosio of Honeycomb Communities for producing this video.  (YouTube link here). They did a bang-up job of firing me up and keeping me talking. And of course, my eternal gratitude to Fully Booked who has been behind me all the way.

How much do I love dessert? This video captures my passion pretty well.

    Thank you! I’ve had my time on TV though – started my career as a newscaster, believe it or not.

  • I love you, Lori! I can’t wait to get fat, happy and hooked on your recipes in the book! :):) Vito likes baking, so I’m sure there’ll be some recipes in here that he and I can do together.

  • I flipped through the book after I got it, while sitting in the car, and it was two words – VISUALLY STUNNING! Hearty congratulations to a young, accomplished author!!! :)

  • Congratulations Lori! I just bought your book, I couldn’t resist buying another baking book specially your very first one. I have been a DCF reader. I like your essays and recipes.

    I’ve tried making the cheesecake recipe which you have posted on DCF but I’d love to try the cheesecake recipe from your book soon as I’m only a recreational/weekend baker . I was once inspired to be a home baker from reading your blog post but my day job keeps me busy enough.

    I broke my diet by eating the DCF cupcake of Sonja’s and the Lori sundae of Bono’s gelato and they’re both worth the calories I will have to burn.

  • I can’t wait to get my hands on your book! I had to repeatedly remind my mom to get it a week before it was launched! You know what made me smile the most when watching your video? When you said “that’s what a book is about, sharing”. I’ve always been inspired by chefs who share their treasured recipes. They are truly generous, and confident enough in their magic, talent and skills to know that they can always develop new ones. Without seeing the book I can tell you put your heart and soul into it. Thanks to you, and your guest chefs’ generosity, a lot of us amateur home cooks now have more ideas to try!
