They say food is a great start to great love stories. This Sunday, 31 March, explore love in different forms and representations as GMA Public Affairs presents Recipes of Love.

A drama special that is sure to tickle the taste buds of viewers, Recipes of Love whips up a hearty offering of true-to-life love stories that blend food and relationships featuring this generation’s notable actors.
For its first recipe, seasoned Kapuso actress Katrina Halili and sought-after Sparkle actor Martin del Rosario try to defend their love against all odds in the episode titled “Tortang Talong with Tuna.”

A single mother of two, Gemmalyn (Katrina) works hard to grow her small eatery, or karinderia, for her children. She is a naturally gifted cook and can make simple yet scrumptious recipes that leave her customers returning for more. One of her popular dishes is Tortang Talong with Tuna, or eggplant omelet with tuna.

Through her small business, Gemmalyn meets Jonathan (Martin). At first, Jonathan is just one of Gemmalyn’s frequent customers. They become close and eventually fall for each other.
Jonathan does not mind that Gemmalyn is a single parent with two kids — something that the latter is truly grateful for.

But as it turns out, Jonathan comes from a rich family. When Jonathan introduces Gemmalyn to his family, his family members immediately object to their relationship. Jonathan’s family members trample on Gemmalyn’s being and try to keep her away from Jonathan.

Jonathan is determined to fight for Gemmalyn, but to what extent can the two lovers endure all the pain?
Don’t miss the first serving of Recipes of Love, featuring “Tortang Talong with Tuna” this Sunday, before The Atom Araullo Specials on GMA Network. The next story, headlined by Max Collins and Luis Hontiveros, will air on 19 May.

Global Pinoys can catch Recipes of Love via GMA Pinoy TV. For more stories about the Kapuso Network, visit www.GMANetwork.com.
