MANILA -- A cooking show hosted by ABS-CBN star Kris Aquino will air starting next week on the cable channel Lifestyle Network.

Set to premiere on August 6 at 9:30 p.m., "The Kris Kitchen" will feature Filipino recipes as carried out by Aquino and her guests, which will include celebrity chefs and showbiz personalities.

Aquino, who is dubbed the country's "Queen of All Media," said the program will focus mainly on "dishes na malapit sa mga puso nating Pinoy, done with so much love."

"Kris TV," Aquino's daily morning talk show aired on ABS-CBN, formerly featured a cooking portion, but was since reformatted to feature more travel segments with its celebrity guests.
