Saturday Evening 6-8 PM

The Manilla Machine The Manila Machine
She’s half, he’s full. But together, their food is 100% Filipino.

Nastassia Johnson is a native Angeleno. Her journey with food has been proverbially long and winding, beginning with lumpias and pancit in Echo Park’s Filipino restaurants. Soon she became absorbed with knowing all of the possibilities of consumption and developed a voracious appetite for food and the history behind it. Nastassia formerly managed foodie mecca, Joan’s on Third, and was also the Director of Social Media for Joan’s on Third. Nastassia is also the author of the food blog Let Me Eat Cake.

As the writer of the Filipino food blog, Burnt Lumpia, Marvin Gapultos has fostered a unique approach to Filipino food based on his own research, interactions with his blog readers from around the world, and yes, a few visits to the kitchens of his grandmother, mother, and aunties. While developing recipes of his own, Gapultos has also worked as a recipe tester for a number of cookbook authors.

In addition to being featured on major culinary Internet destinations such as and, Marvin is also a contributing writer to Mutineer Magazine, a national publication that focuses on fine drink and beverage.
