Richard Gomez is known for being a popular actor, an excellent athlete, and most recently, as a public servant, having won in the recent elections as mayor of Ormoc City in Leyte. But not a lot of people are aware that Richard is also—surprise!—a skilled and self-taught cook. He can easily whip up meals for guests who drop by their home, with food presentation skills to match. It wouldn’t be surprising at all if a man with such a passion for food arguably spends more time in the kitchen than his wife, actress, host and Leyte’s district representative, Lucy.

Goma, as he is fondly called, frequents groceries and finds these visits as his “stress killer.” “Ang problema ko, pag pumunta ako sa grocery today—normally, ang dami kong nabibili, e—’tapos pag biglang napadaan ako ulit tomorrow, gano’n ulit karami!” he shares. He enjoys going to groceries so much that it’s his family’s first stop when they travel.

When it comes to his “workspace,” Lucy took the lead in the kitchen’s renovation in 2009. She made a list of the improvements needed, which included reducing the clutter on the kitchen counters. “I didn’t want to see as many appliances on the counters, kasi it defeats the purpose na you have a nice counter but it’s tambak naman with appliances you don’t use every day,” she explains. This resulted into an elegant and clutter-free space conducive for food preparation and even entertaining guests.
