Wednesday, July 6th, sees Rapsa Executive Head Chef, Francis Puyat and Rapsa Director, Andrew Zilouf take on the prime time tv challenge with a guest appearance on the first episode of Come Dine with Me, with the pros!

What started out as a very last minute invite, ended up as a lot of fun! As these shows go, the dry cut, British humour is to take the front stage and we expect nothing other than awkward moments and a telling-storyline.

Rapsa is excited with this opportunity to highlight one of Filipino cuisines most iconic dishes…the pork sisig! However this episode rolls out, many more Brits will know what this traditional dish is and the skill, precision and love that it takes to prepare it.

Catch us on Channel 4, July 6th at 5pm BST. For those in Hoxton, join us for a screening inside Rapsa@100 Hoxton!

On non-private party days, available Wednesday-Saturday from 5pm in the Sugarlandia Jungle Room alongside the food menu of Rapsa@100 Hoxton. Through the secret bookcase inside Rapsa’s HQ, 100 Hoxton, you will find yourself in the Jungle land of Sugarlandia. Welcome to our Hoxton Party Room, dedicated to all things Pinoy and all things party. Expect fantastic playlists and cocktails that blow your hair back!
