    A famous member of the 80's hit variety show That’s Entertainment, Lotlot de Leon has grown from teen
    celebrity favorite to a seasoned actress and hardworking mother of four. Despite the demands of her television program commitments, Lotlot makes sure she spends time with her children. The daughter of Philippine cinema’s Superstar Nora Aunor and veteran actor Christopher de Leon, Lotlot was raised in a family-centered household. She imparts the same values with her children and nurtures them with time and makes it a point that they would go out on weekends to try different culinary offerings in the metro.

    A gourmand and avid cook, Lotlot showcased favorite home-made dishes and launched “Lotlot Homemade” which features Filipino specialty dishes such as Bopis, Bicol Express and Dulong in Olive Oil. Her children Janine, Jessica, Diego and Max are her number one fans that constantly crave for her Four-Cheese Lasagna, Grilled Chicken Breast, Gyudon and Sukiyaki. Her youngest daughter Max shares her passion for cooking and would join her in the kitchen as they explore new dishes to be shared by the family.
