In a series of Instagram Stories, Florence revealed, “I grew up eating lumpia and would literally count down the days until I’d eat it again.”
And just like any Filipino mom, her best friend’s mother would always give her “pabaon”of lumpia to enjoy at home.
“My best friend was [Filipino] and her mum was a master at cooking. She knew I loved them and would make a batch, freeze them, package them up for me to take home after our sleepover,” she added.
In another story, Florence even tagged her Filipino friend to ask if her mom could share her secrets.
“@wonderfulpsyche This may be my next cooking challenge! can your mama share her secrets?” she wrote.
