Making isamadas with Chef Isa Fabro at Unit 120

Hosted by

After returning from a revelatory trip in the Philippines, Isa Fabro started making desserts in LA’s Far East Plaza that pay homage to her Pinay roots: rich flaky isamadas, coconut malas that mash up Hawaiian malasadas with Filipino karyokas, and halo-halo, or Filipino shaved ice. Find out what inspires this funny, driven Filipino-American chef as she makes isamadas for KCRW’s video team at Unit 120.
