Europeans are so delighted with this set up of dining in an open dinner or in her house.

According to Erica, the concept of imparting Pinoy ‘kamayan’ style and boodle fight to Europeans started when one of her friends suggested this for a get-together.

“I’ve already been doing French-Filipino/Asian fusion dinners, and one day I was asked by my small group of Pinay girlfriends to do a boodle fight for one of our get-togethers,” she shared.

After that, people started to commission her to organize boodle fights for them. And so the Baguettes and Berets was born.

It is her own food business that caters to people who sign up for plated dinner or those who wants to experience Pinoy boodle fight.

“It’s like restaurant quality food but in a less intimidating setting,” Erica said.

Prior to her career as a chef, she worked in the publishing industry for 15 years.

Erica ventured into culinary when she finally moved to Paris, France.

With her idea of introducing a part of Filipino culture to the world, her father Jim could not be more proud of her.

The veteran singer shared on his Twitter account this wonderful endeavor of his daughter, based on the article.

One of the recent celebrity guests of Erica in her boodle fight is Kapuso actress Megan Young.
