In 2010, during a hiatus in her acting career, actress Max Collins discovered a new talent: cooking. Living in Los Angeles, California with her mom, brother, and her mom’s extended family, Max found herself experimenting in the kitchen often. “No one really cooks that much in my family, so I decided to try cooking breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Also, I noticed that a lot of my family members and my friends like to eat out [pero] sayang naman because there’s so much good stuff at home,” she explains. “I just look for whatever is there at home, and then I’ll make something out of it. After a while, I was like, ‘Hey, I’m not so bad at this! I can actually do this.’ That’s when I started liking cooking.”

Fast forward to six years later, the young actress’s confidence in the kitchen has grown. Now back in Manila and living in her own home, her spic-and-span kitchen and dining areas reflect her love for simple meals. “I like to cook easy things so that there’s less mess to clean afterwards. I try to make dishes as simple as possible,” she shares. At the same time, this glam-but-streamlined space keeps her inspired to dream of bigger culinary goals, including opening her own restaurant someday.
